    Has anyone added bullet connectors to their motors? Advantages? Drawbacks?

    Yes,. I have.
    i did so so that I could cut power to to motors so I could balance them.
    but it's also made it easy to purchase and install new motors without having to do any additional soldering.
    and now I can buy DJI red motors and install them easy.

    the disadvantage is that there's not much room in the Phantom shell for additional wires and bullet connectors, it's a bit tight.
    and apparently all those bullet connectors add up in weight.

    Gizmo,
    Thanks for the input. I hadn't considered the space issue. As far as the weight goes, just for grins I weighed a set of 3.5 mm bullet connectors, they're 17 grs.

    Now fill those babies up with lead solder, and weigh them again. :shock:
