I just installed my motor in today. Its a biotch that the wires are all black. You gonna have to mix and match and figure it out on your own. Took me a total of 9 combinations to figure it out. You won't short out the wires as long at the connections don't touch each other. Also the motor won't turn unless you have the right combination. Hope this helps!

HUH? I have never seen that B4. Usually you just hook them up and if the motor spins in the wrong direction you just switch two of them.

You just hook up the wires. If it turns backwards just switch 2 of them.

When soldering on the connectors, just use different colored shrink so you can keep track of which wire you are switching. I've worked with all black wires before and I lost track of how many times I thought I was switching wires when in fact, I was just re-plugging them back together THINKING I had switched them...yes, in fact, I AM an idiot sometimes!

My excuse: I get distracted by the kids grabbing my heli while I'm soldering and switching plugs so I lose track of what I was doing.
