Question
twin motor 2 battery setup question.

okay 2 lipos... parallel into a single double male sides connector..then split back out to each speed controller. (see attached figure) Or can I solder the two batts onto the 12 gauge high wind wire ( or whatever it is called) and just use wire instead of the connector in my drawing? let me know thank you.

Hey Man, I would do away with the deans in the middle, just more resistance/failure point and it serves no real purpose, unless you want a single point to be able to disconect both batts at once

Why not just use one battery split out by a customized connector into the two esc's. I am running my high powered twin motor system that way because it simplifies connector's as well as locating and securing the the battery the only reason that I would run two batteries would be to achieve a desired mha output that was unavailable as a single battery.It also saves weight(less wire). Just my thoughts.
