Default Connecting ESC to MOTOR ?

The 3 cables coming from the ESC are Blue / Yellow / Orange.

The 3 cables going to the Motor are Red / Yellow / Black.

I unhooked it to investigate my receiver problem, now my Forward and Reverse are backwards with the remote.

Can you verify which colors shoul go to which? I don't want to blow anything up, and there's nothing in the instructions on the connectivity.


Thanks

Lets clarify this a little more. The reason it doesn't matter and you can just swap any two wires is because it is not a censored motor. If it were a censored motor it would make a whole world of difference and you would have to get them in the proper order.
