Default Connecting a motor to a speed controller

I have a Turnigy C3530-1700 motor which I want to connect to a Turnigy Plush 30A speed controller but am not sure how to do so. The motor has three lead outs coloured red, black and yellow while the motor side of the controller has three reds with one each coming from positions marked A, B and C and I would like to know what connects to what. Thanks.

The color of the wires between the motor and the ESC does not matter. Just plug them in , in any order. If the motor runs backward for your application reverse any two wires.

On rare occasions the motor will stutter, if this happens switch one of the two wires you just changed with the remaining wire. It's not supposed to happen, but it does.
