I'm going with an Astro 10 brushless with the ESC hardwired (not the best setup - but it's all I've got). The tail motor is the gws b2c (should be here soon)

Are you all saying I should just "Y" the Astro on the ESC side with the Hummingboard and just plug into the lithiums? That sounds right.

Is the Gws ics 50 a brushless tail motor?

And one more thing, I am wanting to know if you have to have a ESC designed for a brushless motor or will the Hummingboard work?

And "Hey there Chad, I don't know what I envey more - your location or you V2 motor" I hope to have both someday.

Thanks,

MarkMan

MarkMan,
If you have revo mix on your transmitter, or are using a Heading Hold gyro, then you would be better off to get a separate tail ESC. If you need to use the hummingboard for a mixer, then you need a "Y" servo connector so you can connect both the brushless controller and the hummingboard to the throttle channel of the receiver. You then leave the main motor connection on the hummingboard disconnected. The last diagram on the page that Hoverup pointed to shows a Picco board connected this way. The hummingboard would be wired the same. And, none of the GWS motors are brushless.
