I have a portable dvd player power converter that I cut the end off of and put a deans connector for setup on the bench. it is 12v and 3 amps so not enough juice to bite me if I goof something up. also it is less volts than my 4s pack so it is easier on the bec

good point..never knew or seen someone use a Rx pack...great idea if you couldn't get to your motor wires to unplug. So with the Rx will it spin the blades at all or just real low power?

with a rx pack the motor might spin once or twice but then stop
doesn't have enough juice to spin the head
that's if you use the bat port
you should plug rx pack into throttle channel thus preventing current from going back into the bec/ESC

my Century ESC has a connector for a rx pack so I use that.
whichever way you want to do it just unplug the bec and plug in the rx pack

Unplug the ESC totally from the receiver. Plug the receiver pack into that slot. Tail, head and almost all setup can be done without the ESC even being plugged in. Receiver packs are less than 20 bucks at your LHS. Anyway, thanks for posting. A great reminder to all the damage even a 450 can cause.

Anyone know how to MOD the idle up switch to stick out further for my BIG splint
Umm.. Use some small heat-shrink and shrink a small stick the length you need to it?

Glad you're gettin fixed man..
