I am new to the cgy 750 and also to using a separate bec(wr Hercules) the bec has 2 power leads coming off of it, but there is nowhere to plug it into the cgy , do they both go to my receiver (r7008sb)and if yes then which ports as only one is marked battery(7 I believe), thanks

You can plug the BEC into any open slot on the receiver or the CGY750 EXCEPT for the Rsen port on the CGY750.

If you used all the slots in the CGY750, you can plug both leads into the receiver, or you can use a Y cable on one of the servos and plug one of the power leads into that.

The e sense is a telemetry device so it would have to go to the -2 slot to downlink to your transmitter. Refer to its instructions and make sure the transmitter is in 14 ch FASSTest assuming the 14SG. Also refer to the radio manual to ensure the receiver is in the right mode.

As Darrick noted, make sure you never plug anything with full radio or greater voltage into the Rsens port or you will be buying another 750; it'll instantly smoke it.
