Re: Part recommendation

Just a thought, but if I cut the wires on the battery and connect the esc between the cuts, how safe is it to charge the battery with the esc attached. Why hasn't someone invented a small bridge that can be placed in between the battery, NanoTwo and ESC instead of cutting the cables. Also just reali...

Shakey wrote:Yes User Friendly's wiring diagram is correct and is fine as long as you cut the red wire on the brushless ESC's servo lead.
Updated the diagram, so this should be correct i hope (Ignore the fact the the servo lead is missing a wire :) ).

Re: Part recommendation

How would the esc connect to the battery. Do I have to cut and rejoin the cables?

Re: Part recommendation

Right I kind of understand how that would work.

Re: Part recommendation

Thanks Rory,

How does that motor connect to the NanoTwo. From what iv seen its just wires and no connector.
