    Just unplug the Red wire(exept for calibration), so if you plug only the Black and the White wire in your wookong from your ESC.

    Matt the Castle's just work very well. And yes it is standard practice to pull out the power wire from the servo connector. Fo programming I just made up a small jumper set so that I can connect to the signal/ground with one connector and a single pin for the power. Makes programming much easier.

    Hobbywing, maytech, and kopterworxs own

    I use both the maytech 40A and the kw60e from kopterworx and they works just perfect, never had any problems at all

    But it was your question...? No ? :cool:
    Matt, you wanted to know what are the best ESC and i can tell you that CC are really the best with a special firmware for Multis and they are rock solid (not chinese conception.) and stay cold after long flight with big cameras...:)

    Oh, I finally understood the question. Sorry.

    Ya the Maytechs are great for the price when your on a tight budget.

    I think its great the CC's are made here in the US if they really are but is there any specific reason to use them vs another esc besides anyone just saying they are just better. Is there any real advantage to paying that much? Also if they are making multi rotor esc's wouldnt they create one with out BEC? I will run the maytechs for a while but if there is a real benefit to moving to them I would like to know if anyone has past experience with them. Thanks
