Wiring a Twin motor and Speed controller with Mixer Setup

1. Take the motor wires from your speed
controller  Normally they will be Yellow & Blue ,Yellow being the positive out of the speed controller  to a Electrical connector block

2. Next make connections from the connector block  or bullet connectors too the motors Now on a lot of motors you will find a dot just next to or above one of the terminals now this is normally the positive connection mark so take the yellow wire to this Terminal on one motor and the Blue wire to that mark on the other motor

3. Next plug the receiver leads from the speed controller into the mixer  then plug your rudder servo into the mixer too . Now take the mixer output leads to the your receiver the mixer instructions will tell you what plug goes to which socket  .

4. Now if both of your speed controllers have BEC you will need to make sure that you one of the speed controllers has the BEC system  disabled  as is not needed .Now this can be done in a
number of way depending on the speed controller used .Most commonly removing the centre red wire of the receiver lead .
Although you can still use a  separate receiver power supply as long as both Bec systems are turned off  you will need a separate supply of about 4.8 to 6 volt to power the receiver

5. Now turn on you Transmitter first  and make sure your stick is in neutral on the transmitter .
Now take  your battery and connect  with the 7.2  or what ever your battery connector  is to your speed controller .Make sure that if there is a switch on your speed controller it is set to on  and run though any setup that the speed controller needs

Text Box: On a twin motor set ups the wires need to be reversed on the terminals I.E where the yellow goes to the terminal with the positive mark on  one side it goes to the other side on the opposite motor so as to give contra rotating motors .
