Don't pay any attention to the wire colors between the motor and ESC. The motor-ESC wires colors don't mean a thing with brushless motors. Just do as Mr Tee says!

Hi Playerpete,
In addition to Mr Tee and Jeffs fix, also some ESCs (castle creations for one ) have the option to reverse direction in the setup, real nice if you already did a nice neat solder job and it's all heat shrinked up
And of course never, ever even think about reversing the input polarity to the ESC[X(], unless you want to send smoke signals
Best of luck,
Pete

And never ever reverse the two wires between battery and ESC, you'll smell electrons ...

And you will release the factory installed smoke. It smells terrible and costs money and pride as well.

Unless it's a CC, then you gets a new one for half price if you send in the charred remains[8D]

Or a Jeti, which also has a half-price replacement policy.
