I purchased an ESC and a Speed 400 motor about 17 years ago with the intention of building my first electric powered model plane. Life took its various turns though and my time for R/C modelling dried up soon afterwards. Now that I have 3 boys who are all starting to show interest in the area, I've started to find the time to look at it all again... yay!
Part of the reason I never got to build that electric plane originally though was that I had no means of connecting the motor to the plug included on the ESC. I know I could just cut the plug and replace it, but I've been trying to identify the type of plug without success for a while now.
Can anybody tell me what the type of the red plug in the image below is?
As an aside, I'm a bit mystified by the battery connector, since it has 16 guage wires onto the ESC, but then connected to much smaller guage wires with a JST plug. I don't have any specs on the ESC itself unfortunately, so don't know what the rated current is and consequently whether or not I should be concerned about those wires!
