Brushless install help
I recently bought a Park 370 E-flight brushless motor for my blade cp pro. I also bought a castle creations phoenix 25 as the ESC. Do I need any special adapters? Can I just solder the connectors on the the esc, and put a jst connect on the esc battery leads (then plug the esc into the throttle plug?)

I see that in the cp pro manual there are a bunch of extra wires to use.

Thanks for the tips in advance.

If you are using the 3 in 1 for the tail motor, yes you need the JST Y harness that is indicated on the manual, becasue the battery is connected to the Y harness, one for the brushless ESC and another for the 3 in 1, remember to take out the red wire from the brushless ESC so the current from the BEC comes from the 3 in 1.

If you are going separates including the ESC for the tail, then you should be able to do it as you want

If you follow the instructions on the Manual, is really very easy to do it!

PS. if you are not very familiar with soldering, is better if someone with experience help you, or you could burn the ESC, when you solder the motor to the ESC

I did a very similar install on my BCP pro a few months ago.

You will also need a Y harness for the throttle servo channel. You have to get the main motor throttle signal to the new ESC of course but you also still have to send it to the old 3in1... so it sees you are at 0 throttle and arms when you start up.

As for the power connectors, everyone on this forum expressed concerns about the ability of jst connectors to handle the added load of a BL motor. It seems no one is impressed by their reliability and many shared horror stories involving smoke and flames.

They talked me into using micro DEANS connectors. I'm happy they did. Here are a few pictures of the harness I made and the connectors. The first picture shows a jst and how mismatched the wire sizes are compared to the inputs on the ESC

I did leave a jst to the 3in1 to keep it stock. This is ok, I rationalized, because it only powers the tail motor in this layout. The main motor power only crosses 1 micro DEANS connector and is hardwired the rest of the way to the ESC.

Thats looks awesome.Two questions:1 is that some type of wire wrapped around your leads?2 do you ever have problems with the tie wraps digging into the wires when they are that tight?Compass helis Support Team

Thanks Fender

1) The black string that spirals around the gyro cable and others is elastic thread. I wrap some wires into bundles with it, makes them more manageable. You can get some in the sewing section of any craft store.

2) Tie wraps seem ok that way. No damage that I can detect so far but you do have to be careful if you ever cut them off.
