I just got one today and i am new to micro helis. i am tryihg to build it but the instructions suck. i got all centruy products. should i just solder the motor to the esc? should i solder the battery to esc? then from esc how does the rx get power? will it power through the throttle channel? i have a tanic pack that has 3 connector spots and a positive and negative oout of it.
thanks

j/k

Use deans ultra female connector on the battery, Use deans ultra Male connector on the ESC-battery side. Use MPI 3.5mm bullet connectors on the 3 wires that go to the motor, and vise versa. The RX gets power from the ESC 3wire(brown,red,orange) etc... you plug that into channel3 on the rx. SO basically the ESC give 5v power to run everything but the motor. And the brushless wires comming off the ESC get the max voltage, whatever your pack is.

I dont have a tanic pack so i dont know how they are setup.
