Esc and Action P40 connections
« on: June 28, 2020, 01:27:35 pm »

I'm setting up 2 brushless Esc's and motors & connecting to an Action P40 mixer . Do I need to remove one of the red wires on one esc as you do when connecting to a receiver?

If you have two speed controllers, each with BEC, then you must disconnect the positive wire from one of them - especially if you are running two separate battery packs.

I did disconnect the positive red wire when I wired up for the receiver.
Wasn't sure about making the same disconnection for a P40 motor mixer board.
Never used one before.
Thanks Dave.
