I just received my electronics for my new build and have a few questions.

I ordered a C10 Micro brushless outrunner 2900kv, a TURNIGY Plush 6A /.8bec/6g Speed Controller, a Rhino 360mAh 2S 7.4v 20C Lipoly Pack, and a GWS EP Propeller (DD-4040 102x102mm) (6pcs/set).

My first question is that the motor and speed controller don't have any connectors on them. SO do you think that I need to solder them, or buy connectors and use those? I was thinking that if I just solder them then I wont know until after I solder them if the motor will spin the right direction. The other question has to do with mounting my props. The motor did not come with a prop adapter and I'm not sure what I need. Do you all recommend using a prop saver?

Thanks for your help!

It's a matter of preference, but connectors will make it a LOT easier to install, replace, or troubleshoot components later. How are you mounting the props? Press-fit?
Yes, I've known that I'm "different" for some time now...

I'm not sure. Like I said I was expecting it to come with a prop adapter, so I'm open for suggestions. Being new I still run into snags like this. I don't know the options so I'm not sure what to do. I just use the prop adapter that came with my MJV3 on my other planes, so I though all motor would come with a way to mount the props.

Ten all of the wire ends (coat them with solder). Mount the motor. Cut 3, 1 inch pieces of heat-shrink then slide one up each wire close to the ESC. Solder a wire from the ESC and motor together. Slide the heat-shrink over the connection and apply heat to shrink it. Poorly solder the other two connections together, and hold them apart as you turn on the radio and try the motor out. If it runs the wrong way, unsolder and switch the wires. Now that you know how the wires are supposed to go, correctly solder and heat shrink them.

Most of the motors we use have a 3.17mm Shaft. Your motor's shaft is 2mm.

If the motor is mounted on the front of the plane, a prop saver is also a good motor saver.
