About Deans Connectors
Hobbyists with a hankering for helicopters, small aircraft ? or in fact, any radio control gadgetry have become accustomed to using the Deans Connector when putting together (or putting back together) their latest scale model. Otherwise known as the ?Ultra Plug?, this RC (radio controlled) connector is a low resistance, high quality, polarized electrical connector specifically designed for radio control use, which is probably why it has become so widely used. What enables this connector to have such a uniquely low resistance is presumed to be the combination of the gold and silver plated, spring-loaded contacts ? but the manufacturer likes to keep the exact specifications to itself. What is known about the Deans Connector is that it allows more current to flow through the connector than if the wires were actually soldered together, which is no small feat. These high-performance connectors, which are found on eBay, have been a staple go-to for years and are still one of the lightest and most efficient mid-size connectors on the market.
