Question
UBEC question about how to connect

I have a this UBEC:

Anyone know how to feed the input on it? There is three cables in to it, and I hope
to avoid removing the shrink tube around.

EDIT:
I mean how to connect it to my battery, and if one or two of the input cables is in use.

Solder on a female servo plug.

OK, this made me think.
I took for granted that the side that already has a soldered connector on it is an output. Am I wrong on this?
EDIT:
I found out:
Brown: -
Red: +
Orange: Just connected straight through .

The end with no connector is the input.

if thats just a standard ubec, then the three bare wires.
the yellow/orange one is not used.

The brown one is negative and the red one is positive.

Wire these up with a battery connector of your choice, like a mini jst battery connector, OR solder then onto the pos and neg of your esc's battery leads right where the battery connector is soldered onto the esc.

yes, thats the end that gets plugged into your receiver's battery input.
