The Align 35X ESC I think can handle 4s lipo. The only problem is it lessens the amount of available current to the BEC.

I think It can only run like 2 servos or something with 4s.

It will supply your radio equipment with its own power. It will help reduce the heat and load on your ESC. It solders red to the red wire of your esc, and black onto the black wire of your esc I believe, also if your esc ever gives out you will still have controll of your servos and stuff like that.

Correct me if I am wrong, still learning here.

Your ESC will only power the motor. The BEC will power the servos rec.

Check diagrams before plugging everything in. You will have to clip one wire from the ESC. Dont do anything till you have diagrams on the BEC you want to run.

Its not that much work. Just takes an hour more to set up.

I run the stock Align controller with a Park BEC on 4s.. Couldn't be simpler. Speed control plugs into the BEC, Bec plugs into reciever. No wire cutting involved! Works awesome!
