    How to hook up Battery 2 x 2200mAh 3S in series?

    I am looking at buying a 500 size heli and it suggest:

    Battery: 2 x 2200mAh 3S 20C
    or 1 4400 6S 20C

    How exactly would you hook up the 2 3S to one ESC? Thanks!

    what you need is a Y harness like this: http://www.helidirect.com/great-plan...ter-p-8712.hdx

    The above is correct - but I learnt a little trick from watching one of Finless Bobs Videos over on heli-Freak - I made this adaptor at the end of the ESC leads which means that you do away with the need for the connector (assuming you will always be ruinning 2 x 3S batteries on that ESC). It keeps the wire length and mess down and a few grams.

    A point to note is that your end rating will be 2 x 3S or 22.2v @ 2200mAh and not 4400mAh.

    That hook up is for putting two batteries in series (red to power, black to red, black to ground) which adds the voltage together

    What he needs is two batteries in parallel ( red to red to power, black to black to ground), which adds the capacity together.
    That way, he'll get 11.1V @ 440mAh

    looking at his original post which states he has 2 x 11.1v packs he want to use for the 500 size.in a series. He doesnt need a parallel connecter. he needs a series connector. You can't run a 500 on 3s. you need 6s. ask me how Iknow.

    Good point, I was looking at the capacity and not the 3S vs. 6S
    Ignore me, and listen to someone who has a 500 size heli...

    Series it is!

    Looking at the numbers, they don't add up.
    If you hook 2 x 3s 2200mah in series, you will have a 6s 2200mah.
    If you hook 2 x 3s in parallel, you will have a 3s by 4400mah.

    There is no way you can get 4400mah 6s from 2 x 3s 2200mah as you have listed above. ( Quote: or 1 4400 6s 20c )

    Something seems wrong with the 2 different battery specs. you have listed.

    You would have to hook 2 x 3s 4400mah in series to get a 6s 4400mah, or
    hook 2 x 6s 2200mah in parallel to get 6s 4400mah.
