A lot of people are using these. (Well, maybe just plane guys) I've been using them for other applications, and they work OK.

I've look into astro flight plugs but then problem is when you goto brushless to brush motor you need the two negative to be together... which is a probably with those plug unles you mod it somehow.

those could be used for brushless / brushless swap.

I use the 3.5 mm bullet connectors for my brushless and brushed setups.

Brushless mode

Brushed mode

Yes, he's the guy. Very friendly and easy going. HB Moose is his sceen name on these boards. He helped me with mine. His set-up and mine can swap each others BL motor for racing, practice, or to try different speeds. I have a conversion harness for my brushed motors. I can pull the brushed motor and harness for BL. No soldering to use my brushed motor with my GTX car or my GTB car. No soldering to go to and from BL in my GTB car.

I think its 2 deansplug glued together to have 3 soldering tabs.. that should make it easier to switch motors, and even switch from brush to brushless.
