They have a notch in the side so you can build them at close to right angles.

The hole near the end of these connectors is for the same reason - 90 degree soldering.

I have been thinking about the same thing my self. I was thinking about taking bullets and drilling a hole in the side to put my wire at a right angle. If you don't already have bullets I would buy these /|\

What conversion do you have in your RC8?
Also, how do you have your lipos wired so you can use 2 2s packs instead of one bigger pack?

Batteries using female bullet connectors will use a 4mm male connector.
