Default 4mm bullet/banana connector

Hey everyone, my buddy and I are making the switch to brushless and lipos. Need to know the best or cheapest place to get the 4mm bullet connectors.

I know some will say your LHS. But I have looked at my local shop and they didn't have any.

I did some google searches but mostly found alot of ebay and overseas links.

Where does everyone get them at?

Thank you,
Clay

You can get some here:

Shipping is usually only $4.xx for a small order of parts.

Randy has them at The Hobby Shop. They are usually either in the airplane section or on the wall to the right of the register. If not he can order them and usually have them next day. Will save you shipping and you can support the LHS.

Agree! They are very easy to solder at either a 90 degree angle or straight on. Hold Tight and cheap.

Clay, Randy usually carries those but if not you can order them on Monday and they will likely be in Tuesday afternoon.
