Twin motor connections
« on: March 30, 2011, 04:54:38 PM »

Can anyone help please with a wiring diagram/instructions for a two-motor set-up.
The motors are brushles outrunners - Overlander T3548/5, 770 Watt, 890 revs/volt;  two esc's, Fusion 60 Amp FS-HWK60; Spektrum DX& transmitter; Spektrum receiver AR6200.
The esc's have been pre- programmed for reversing.  I'm not too good with electronics, and don't want to blow up loads of expensive kit!

Thanks

Terry

Assuming both motors are to be operated off the same channel, then its quite simple. Wire each motor, ESC and battery as for a single motor setup. The only difference is that you need a Y lead from the Throttle slot on the Rx. Plug each ESC into one of the ends,BUT you need to disconnect the RED lead from one ESC plug.
