hey
do you guys have any links or some kind of explanation on how t wire up the ESC, Motor and battery?//

as you can tell this is my first eletric......you probably have seen some of my other posts (sry for being annoying)....

i've been advised to solder the engine wires directly to the ESC right???

i have 400DH motor, 35CC ESC, GY401/HS50, HS56 x3....Dymond 11.1v Lipoly 12C batteries


thanks for your guy's time


Thanks

I use to hardwire my motors, a habit from r/c cars, but nowadays I use connectors. Pain in the butt working on it when you have to pull out your soldering iron to remove the ESC. Luckily C.C. allows you to reverse the motor through the ESC now, hardwired it backwards one time. I us dean ultra's for the battery connection. Good luck.

You should have a wiring diagram for ESC in the instructions. Also I would get the PHX link to program you ESC. If you don't have a manual here's where to get one from trextuning.com. I wouldn't solder the ESC to the motor... the CC35 comes with bullet connectors. The battery wires just need the connectors.. choose whatever type you like... most everyone i know uses the deans ultra plugs, just remember to solder to the correct polarity.

Helicopters shouldn't fly, they are just so ugly they repel the ground.

Here is a rough sketch of the wiring.... On the three wires that go to the motor, I personally use connectors... If the motor spins the wrong way, I just switch two of the 3 wires...

Aeileron is channel 1
Elevator is channel 2
ESC/Motor is channel 3
Gyro is channel 4
gyro gain is channel 5
Pitch is channel 6

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Since you didn't mention the type of transmitter, just wanted to say that Ozy's channel numbers are for futaba Tx.. others use different channel numbers

Yes. Dean's Ultra Plugs, and you will need two set, well actually 1 and 1/2. A male for the ESC, and female for the battery, an another male for you charger. You will need 3 pairs of connectors, at least 3.5mm. And don't be confused, I believe darkmask was mistaken when he said the bullet connectors should have come with the ESC, they don't. Good luck.

Use Anderson Power Poles... deans are crap.

RDx000 and Electron 6 will look like so:

Channel 1 Elevator
Channel 2 Aileron
Channel 3 Throttle
Channel 4 Gyro
Channel 5 Gyro Gain
Channel 6 Collective

Andersons perform a little better, but Deans do just fine... The most common setup is AETGGP hehe, Aeileron, Elevator, Throttle, Gyro, Gain, Pitch. The CC doesn't come with bullet connectors, my align motor did though... the 400DH is from gofly though right??

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

I use Anderson's for power supply <-> charger connections... but Dean's have more contact surface area (less voltage drop), hold together excellently, and are smaller and lighter than Anderson's. Why don't you like Dean's Shell? And in what way do Anderson's "perform better" Ozy?

The have lower loss across the connections.. due to the larger surface area and conductive material they use....

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

lol... sorry, I just get tired of seeing Deans all the time.

IMHO, I think Sermos (Power Poles) are easier to solder, generate less resistance, and are a bit more fool proof -- I bet you know someone who has/had male deans battery packs?

wanted to make sure you knew what we were talking about.

Deans 2 Pin "Polarized" Ultra Plug W/Shrink Tube.
Yes, buy 2.

Put 1 Male on the ESC "bat." leads.
Put 1 Female on the battery.
Put 1 Female on spare battery(optional).
Put 1 Male on charge leads.

hey
thanks guys i made a trip to my LHS and got all the goodies...

question though...the LHS guy recommened just soldering directly the motor to the ESC....the reason....less resistence

do you guys do this...or recommend it??

how easy is it to break the solder if i want to change ESC???

Thanks

Less resistance, sure, whether or not its enough to hurt anything, probably not... Soldering and desoldering, isn't hard, just wears on the components.... If you plan your setup right, you could do it, without desoldering, just plan it right....

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

What he says is correct, and this is why most R/C car racers will solder or hardwire directly to the motor, and battery. It is not necessary to get every last ounce of juice flowing through you motor, since you won't be going WOT (Wide open throttle) constantly. How easy depends on how good a solder you are, and whether or not you leave you soldering iron out. You would just have to remove both if you need to work on your motor, and need to figure out your placement beforehand. Good luck.

If you have a Futaba or Hitec then it's as Shelldude says, if it's JR then I believe throttle is channel 1. Sorry I'm not sure how Airtronics are setup. Good luck.
