D5 Strong power connector help

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I recieved my d5 strong 2 days ago and I cannot figure out the power connector. It is extremely over sized.

Pics below.








Anybody have any idea what type of connector it is? Do I have to mod it to a molex connector or is there an easier workaround?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

It should fit a 4 pin molex. Does yours not fit?

I feel like it is half of one of these 4 pin power connectors.

its called a Tamiya connector found in the Radio Controlled hobby.
mainly found on high-amp discharge battery packs or electric motors.
you should change it to a more commomly used connector like the molex
because of the amperage draw.

Thanks a lot. I plan on swaping it to a molex once I get around to finding my old soldering gun.


Thanks!

I find it odd that yours came with that connector. My D5 strong came with a molex adapter. Where did you buy your D5 strong from?
