Question
My new motor has no wire leads- what goes where?> Question Answered, Thank You!<

Here is a picture of my new motor. I need to solder wire leads with bullet connectors on the end to plug into my ESC. I can do the soldering, I just need to know which wire goes where. ESC has Black, yellow and red like every othe ESC. Does it matter which gets hooked up to which solder pad. I know it has somthing to do with which direcion the motor will turn. I'm guessing that yellow goes to the center pad and red and black go to the left and right... not sure though.

Color doesn't matter. If the motor turns the "wrong" way, reverse any two motor leads from the ESC.

Great, thankyou. Does that mean the motor is happy running either direction? or is the "wrong" way also bad for it?

The motor will blithely turn in either direction: you decide.

Nothing wrong with asking, and humor is always appreciated.
