Default Brushless connectors?

I'm looking into getting this combo: http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=4709

What type of connectors would you all suggest?

Connector tests, in German but numbers are international

I'd just use the bullet connectors that are somewhat standard for motor/ESC connections. The smaller 0.8mm or 2mm connectors should work for an 8A system:

If you want to save some weight, then just solder them together. Be sure to check for correct rotation direction BEFORE you solder, though.

For battery connectors, the micro Deans connectors should work fine:

MP Jet Gold connectors (1.8mm) would be ideal for an 8A system (heck, they are rated for 20A). I use 'em on the battery too.
