the motor should run no matter how you wire it. and if it isn't wired correctly it spins the wrong way. then you swap any two wires or program the esc to reverse it. either way works. just out of curiosity, can you post a screenshot of the esc settings please?

If easier or even feasible, flip the connector

i don't think your wiring is right.....can't be 100% sure though because i can't see the esc. Did you look at some pics of other installs to make sure the wires going to the esc are all at the correct solder points?

genuis cp

i havent found any good pics of the wireing on a genuiscp. there is a lot of picks for the mcpx but it is different . the pic of the wirinng drawing shows where all the wires from the esc goes. yu got 3 wires to the motor ,. a plus and neg to the battery and 3wires to the receiver , one is the signal wire that goes to the black post on the old brushed motor and the other 2 are one posative and the neg to the receiver. thats all of the wires except the 3 that go to the toolstick that are used to program. wat do you think is wrong on the wireing? thanks tom

i have a feeling the signal wire may be soldered to the wrong point on the esc....it's not soldered to the same place as mcpx.
this isn't the exact same esc but it should be close...is this how yours is wired?
