Running two ESC's and 2 motors?

Is there any magic to hooking two ESC's/motors to your receiver throttle channel( for a twin EDF)? In other words will a simple 'Y' connector work, or would you need a reversing 'Y'? Bill

Here are pics of a mock-up of a canopy for my scratchbuild Su-27. I'd like to build a working opening canopy, but, I can't figure out how to properly hinge the thing. It seems it should rise up a...

I've just ordered a 2nd 5000mah 5s to run in series for an EDF application. I notice a suggested wiring method is to solder and shrink wrap one set of wires. My question is how the charge works...

RE: Connectors for 8 AWG Lipo?

Thanks! As it turns out, I had the gold connectors I'd bought way back. Turns out when I got the battery it already had those connectors soldered on, so all I had to do was put them on the ESC. ...

Connectors for 8 AWG Lipo?

I just bought my first 'big' battery for an EDF. When I look at the #8 wire, the Dean connectors I've used on small batteries hardly seem adequate. What do you guys recommend for running 2 -...
