Yes compatible with the usual RX type plugs used on just about all HobbyKing equipment. Just make sure your RX is really close to the controller board though. There's little room to play with. If you are unsure you can go up to the 10 cm version. 10CM Male to Male Servo Lead (JR) 26AWG 10pcs/set)
A pin by itself (without a shell)is just a pin. This is an assembly consisting of female pins, connectors and wires. The description is correct. You can call it what you want but the rest of the world (by convention)calls it a male connector.
Kristopher: Thank You for the length.
By convention, a connector type (male or female) is referred to by the shell and not the pin type. These are male to male connectors. The pins are female.
Does anyone know what the length of the cables are?
They don't place a majority of orders until a substantial proportion of the quantity has been pre-sold. Nil inventory investment, smaller warehouses, free credit from product suppliers, and lots and lots of angry, cheezed-off and disappointed customers.
What defines a plug to be male or female is part of the contact, when I look I see the receiver pins, so male. Still not satisfied? see an example in this site, go to www.link these are female or male?
THEY'RE MALE TO MALE. The description does not describe the metal contacts, but the "male" black plastic part, which slides inside the "female" black plastic part. THE DESCRIPTION IS CORRECT. THESE ARE MALE.
If you are unsure whether these are M to M or F to F think about when males and females make a baby. The male has the bit that points out and sticks in the females waiting gaping hole. These are therefore F to F
