anti spark wire
hey guys , got all my rc pro plus connectors on my batterys , and esc, but seeing how this is my first step into 12s setups, im a bit stumped on the anti spark wire coming from my esc? instructions say to solder an extra wire on the + side of the battery and use a plug to do this, it also states that after you are done connecting the esc to the batterys to unplug the antispark before taking further steps? can someone break this down , and the do's and don't's to this antispark wire?
and couldn't I just solder this red wire to the + of my esc wire , rather than on the Y harness?

the anit spark wire is nothing more than a resistor that connects between the pack and ESC that charges the capacitors slowly before the full connetion to the battery is made.

If I recall someone had made an automatic system that employed a high power MOSFET or IGBT as a switch... it allowed you to connect the pack directly. the interface would slowly allow the ESC caps to charge up through a resistor, then the switching component (IGBT or MOSFET) would short out the resistor and allow full current flow to the ESC. It had issues though with stability I think... cant remember the whole deal.
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Easiest Anti-spark I've run across..

But when i used the type you describe, i made a short male to female extension with a lead branching off of it to connect to the lead on the ESC.

I use AS-150 connectors. No extra wire, just as simple as EC5 connectors. They have a built-in dielectric that allows for a low current charge up of the caps, hence no spark.

Hobby King carries them.

I just left it plugged in until it was time to unplug the main battery lead.

The Jeti connectors Chuck linked to act just like a regular bullet connector. They stay plugged in. I run them on the ground side of all my ESC's. You can also get 8mm(300amp) for larger current machinesTeam Synergy, Team FBL Rotors-------if its not broke...it will be!

I got the Anderson PP version since that what I use on everything. They have all sorts of connectors on this page. Works excellent.
