I don't use deans connector for the motor.
It's more hassle than a benefit for me.

And there isn't much room to use it in TC3 anyway.

BTW, you should use female for the ESC and male to the motor.
Because power is coming from ESC to the motor.

i used to use deans plugs on the motor and corally style on the battery. i stoped because the esc is right next to the motor and running the deans needed too much wire but when i did have it that way it worked fine. i had male on the motor so i dont know how it would go with female on the motor but unless it unpluged itself during a race it would be fine.

You have to use female one on anything that power's coming out.
Like battery and ESC.
Otherwise you could short circuit it and destroy the batteries or worse, ESC.

i dont think male plugs are available separately. last time i checked, female plugs can be bought in 4s per pack, while male plugs always come with females. what i do, i split the pack with a friend who uses females on his batteries. i get the males for my motors (he hardwires his motors.) i dont know if deans offers 4-pack male plugs.

i use corally.... no messing with wires etc... they're just like an extension of the tabs on the endbell.... i find it so convenient... keep your wits about when plugging it in, careful about the polarity....

I'm pretty sure they do not. I did a couple searches just a minute ago, and found only females. Also at work i have not seen just the male plugs, and we carry almost all of deans wiring supplies.

thanks guys, i just purchased some trinity r-minus connectors. i decided the deans would not me cost effective and my motor is next to the speedo, so there is just no room.
