No, you just need one, install it on the leads that go to the ESC.

The battery ID sensors good for 1 or two batteries just ID tags to one battery just set it to one battery, just call it "12s or 14s" when you nae it...

If you use two plugs for your 12s packs, you can make your Y on the battery side of the mah sensor. This is how I have done 3 of my 12s helis like this.MikadoUSA

ok thx for the pics so the wires look like they are the same size as my castle edge 160hv esc. then i can make the y from there. each heli will need one also.

so once installed the vcontrol will tell me how many mah's i use in flight and warn me when i get to a certain percent? im guessing this is all done in radio of course.

You could make your existing wiring work, but it would only measure 1 pack.MikadoUSA

awesome thx. so really if i only do one pack i can still know when i hit 80% of that pack so technically the other pack should be there also or close to it.

where does the other little wire plug into?

This is what pops up on your Vbar Control screen when you power off your Vbar. There are several things that you will have to set, but it's fairly simple. When you first plug a pack in, you're asked to set it up. Starting voltage per cell, number of cells, mah, what percentage that you'd like to land at and finally a name for this battery pack. One thing you will need to keep in mind is when your timer is counting down to land, 0% is the actual percentage that you set in the battery setup. Every time you plug a pack in, it will ask which pack you're using and you'll choose from a list that you're made. The Battery I.D. eliminates choosing which battery you won't. It does measure starting voltage, so if you put a discharged pack in it, it will earn you. If I can help, feel free to PM me.MikadoUSA
