Is there a connector for a servo or ESC?

Is there a regular 3-pin female for this or do·I have to·just use one of the i/o pins and hook it to + and gnd? Kind of messy. I was hoping for a connector.

    R/C hobby shops usually sell connectors of all types. There are many online sources for quality connectors.

    Usually Servo's are intended to be installed in an RC airplane or as an RC automobile control. As such, they have a short 3-wire connector intended to be plugged on to pins sticking up from a circuit board.

    You can make a connector to use with these. I believe it is the smallest 'molex' type connector. They make two flavors of pins -- one with a female socket, one with a pin already attached.

    You MIGHT be able to find pre-fabricated 'Servo Extension' cables. Check in their aviation section.
