Default Wiring for twin out-runners

I am building my first twin, the Short Scion. I need someone to refresh my sometimes faulty memory about how to wire this up. I have both motors, 2 ESCs, wires, connectors, etc. I can not remember which wires to remove from ESC #2 before hooking up to the RX. A little help please.

Are you asking about turning off the BEC in one of the ESC? If so it is the red wire.


Buzz.

Better yet, use a short (3") servo extension between ESC and RX and sever the red wire in that.. then your ESC remains pristine for use in further projects.
