Default RE: Dean Connectors

Many of the helicopter guys are now using Anderson Power Poles. Crimp on, no solder, and apparently the connection is better (their arguement, not mine). Here is a review by Model Airplane News:

I still use Deans and have don't have a problem with 10 gauge wire or pulling them apart when connected. But that is all due to the iron... a wide tip that gets hot and stays hot... as with most things, the right tool makes all the difference.
