You know the answer. What is your favorite connector? Solder up some battery packs/ESC with that favorite connector of yours...make life easier on yourself. Most 2S/3S packs should fit into a Tenacity battery compartment, or tray (few Tenacity reiterations out there) that uses foam spacers/adjustable strap.

If you don't have a favorite connector, or soldering iron/station, then I'd strongly encourage you to get both, but I think you are already there. Yes?

I guess my concern is if it will affect the ATC with the spektrum receiver,,seeing that I will be installing an off brand non horizon battery...thanks for the comeback...

I wouldn't be concerned one bit. The day I'm forced into using ECx connectors, is the day I quit RCing .

Most likely your receiver/gyro is powered by the ESC's onboard BEC. The speed control is only "looking" for the correct working voltage. It doesn't care what color; shape; size, or material the connector is...yet. When Horizon starts making "smart" ESCs that must use their "smart" batteries...just one more thing to go wrong. Meh.
