Look again............there may  be a prize involved.

I am probably making an idiot of myself, but why is the motor marked as 10A and not the fuse?   Pete M

Because it's a 10A load, Pete. It just happens  to be a motor. The accompanying text explains fuses, but I didn't show that bit here.

Now who's the idiot who can't turn a diagram round so it is in the same plane as the esc DOH my head hurts

I'll introduce you one day, maybe?

Just compare the diagram to the photo and spot the difference - 't ain't rocket science (or maybe it is..................).

Is the diagram of the underneath and you've used it to wire everything up the other way up ?

This is how it should have been




Now spot where the red and black wires are on the esc and compare to the diagram which now has been turned around thus enabling whoever to wire it up correctly,and stop FLJ going Greyer than he is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andy study the diagram CAREFULLY just look at diagram and then look at where the red and black are fitted to on the esc spotted something yet,if not then stick to your petrol engines ;)

Oh, I see... The red wire goes to the red wire near the wire near the black one, and the other one goes to the one near the red wire located near the other red wire nearest the black one. Consequently, any electromotive force is not going backwards like it should and the black one isn't going forwards, so if the red one and the other red one were inversely connected as per the sketch, means that the black wire nearest the red wire would have to carry more Joules than the wire near the regulator. No wonder the fuse keeps popping because the very first black wire has a knot in it, thereby creating a high impedence turboelectroluminescent foldback loop in the back EMF circuitry. In effect, it means  that the motor will essentially counteract any locally-induced nano-picopharads being imposed upon the red terminal, and that other red wire is there to help the flow of electrons reaching the red wire near the red wire next to the black one. In turn, the heat generated from the fuse at the point of rupture will alter the 93.7 millisecond pulse from the quasi-pseudo random access rombomblistic generator... which is good, because all you need then is connect delta-star configuration at the point of potential energy. Then, in order to allow to fuse to pop at its HRC rating, you would have to wrap the fuse in a length of aluminium foil. Sainsburys sell ten-metre rolls of foil for 0.30p and would serve as a perfect ohmic quasi-doubler when induced with sufficient juice form the black return wire.

Easy-peasy!

Agreed. 6 inch nails are much more reliable than kitchen foil.
And PMK left out the the transperambulation of pseudo-cosmic anti-matter, but if he will insist on kitchen foil, this is understandable.

Bummer - I clean-clear forgot about the pseudo-cosmic anti-matter inversed-phased dilithium x-tals.
B&Q should have them... along with the formahydride resin-dipped, 6-inch fool-proof nails.

Stavros and AndyN both win the carrot. I only hung back a bit to see what else came up. Most illuminating............. 8)

(Note to PMK - why not just put away Stallspeed's latest book and stick to The House at Pooh Corner? Less pain in the brain, m' dear).

It's an electronic carrot held in stasis in hyperspace within a black hole. You will need to reach Warp Factor 10 in order to reach it. I believe FLJ can supply the necessary components (in kit form) to achieve this but the cost of assembly may be rather high.

Barry,

Its worse that that! 
The E-carrot achieves such a proportion of C that you cannot specify its location AND velocity.  So FLJ can never know where it stock is once it is assembled and tested.  The perils of success :}

RTFM is short for Read The Fine Manual, isn't it?  Do you sell a lot to Spain and Mehico?
