I recommend using the EC5 connectors for the battery. Triple check the polarity on the blue shell before snaping the wire connectro in it. The female blue shell with the male bullet connectors go on the battery, the rest on the ESC. Be very careful when changing battery connectors, do one wire at a time, so you don't short it even for an instant. The old battery plug will have to be cut off, I recommend carefully cutting off the plastic part, one wire at a time then solder it and put it into the new plug then start the other, so when you desolder the old plugs they will be primed with solder and you will not risk oxidizing the wire. Make sure you find a good place to keep the ESC so it gets air flow for cooling.

If you want to use the 5 cell battery, make sure its dimensions of 143mm x 43mm x 31mm fit in the plane.
