This means the even fight each other in the one ESC. Under load you can feel one heating up as it sources or sinks excess current to/from the other.
As such I would definitely recommend removing the power leads from M2 to M4.
HAPPY SUNDAYS AND GSD
Thanks for getting back with that useful advice to be honest I had some issues with SS ESC a couple of years back and vowed I would not use them again but they seem so popular that I thought I would give them another chance I am regretting it already wish I had purchased turnigy plush as I usually don't ever get any grief with them ........well not .yet
Thanks again Jeff
