My flying buddy has a high power setup in a 71" wingspan 3D plane.
He has a large Hacker motor driven by a Castle HV 120 amp ESC.
He has Castle 5.5 mm bullet connectors between motor and ESC.
Sometimes the plane flew fine, sometimes it would not, so I suspected poor solder joints as he did not have a higher powered solder gun, only a 30-40 watt pencil tip iron.
We resoldered all 6 connectors, yes they all needed much more solder in them to fill the pocket around the wires. We thought we had it fixed.
For some reason I plugged one pair together and then twisted the connection, it rotated with no resistance!
All of the bullets we had would take a moderate amount of force to push them together, felt like a good tight connection.
BUT all of the pairs would turn freely when fully pushed together.
The male pin would pull back about 1/16" before it was tight. He had noticed in the plane, if he pulled on the wires, everything would act fine.
There is no way those connectors would pass 100 amps,
if they were in the fully engaged position as they should be.
Somehow, the diameter inside the female socket is larger at the back of the socket than it is at the front opening. I am sure that these are some kind of manufacturing mistake, because Castle is a good company with high standards.
If you use these connectors, check them to see if you have a good tight connection, when fully pushed together. If someone lost power at the wrong time, it could be a very high dollar crash.
We soldered his together until we can get some good high amp connectors.
