Default Connecting two motors

Hi,

If I have a model with two motors, then how can I connect the speed controllers and the batterers?
Can I use a Y-lead to connect two speed controllers in one receiver?

Thank you

Musalami,

Yes, you can just plus the 2 speed controllers into a "Y" harness and then into the rx. some escs require that you disable one BEC by unhooking the red wire from the male shell; others don't care.

Most guys say to hook your batteries in parallel so that one motor does not run out of power before the other and that any differences in the packs won't affect the performance of one motor.
