Shark connector

Can anyone tell me the type of connectors used on the Shark? I am looking for batteries now - 3S LiPo 1000mA, and wonder what type connector will work. Here's a picture from the Shark. Also, what have you all used for battery size? Thanks
Doug

This is a Deans' connector. Is that what you are asking? I have some, male and female if you need.

To be standard in your battries and compatibility between planes...I advise to change it in an XT60...The most standard one. (choose the genuine ones)

I agree with Mezri, better to standardize with a XT60 if your other RC stuff uses them.

I agree also the XT60, you can always make or buy adaptors.

Thanks guys. My first two planes are the Apprentice and the Timber by eflight, both use the EC3 connector which is ok but hard to disconnect. Sounds like the XT60 is the way to go for the Shark, but maybe not change the other two for time being. Is there such a thing as a Deans to XT60 adapter or do I have to get out the soldering iron?
