2 Power Leads on ESC?!


Martin [Admin]:

This has come up on Facebook ....

"Just got my new brushless ESC it has connection to battery and to receiver. So what’s the red/black cable for?"

Martin [Admin]:
Info I've found:

Flycolor Fairy Series 30A LV 2-4S Brushless ESC With 5V 1A BEC & XT60 Plug

I had replied on the Facebook group that I thought that they were just alternative battery connections but having seen the original use I would think that the XT60 plug is for the power battery while the red JST plug is to provide power to lights on the plane. I have a similar setup on one of my planes, the esc has a JST connector to power the navigation and landing lights.
