Default Turnigy Plush 80 ESC



I got me a Turnigy 80 Amp ESC with Battery Elimanitor Circuit and it works great. No problems at all. What I want to know is what is that little donut do-hickey with the BEC wires going around and through it. Whats it's purpose?

I've already ran the motor with the ESC and I did buy a program card for it, just wondered what that little donut thing was on the BEC wire you plug into the throttle port on the receiver.

The donut is a filter to prevent electrical noise being generated in the ESC or motor going into the receiver and possibly causing a problem.

Okay thanks rcacro, I'm very new to electrics and appreciate all the info all the people on this board have given me. Although there is a wealth of stuff about electrics, some of the questions that I ask have been really hard to dig up in all the posts and articles written on here.

it is a ferrite ring, it is used to mitigate spikes and filter RF signal that can perturb the receiver.
Just let it there but ensure that it will be attached to something and not free.
