Just solder the red wire from the SPC to the red wire on the ESC, solder black from SPC to black on ESC, plug it into the SPC port. You now have voltage telemetry.

Good pick up, the reference related to the NiMH.
Existing battery is still the A9's original which was received before the Aurora 9 was released to the general public and still going very strong.

There has been no change to that shown under your three earlier posts:
Optima 6 with Brush Type AF 211ESC, UBEC
Almost a disaster
Polarity of SPC Port

Aurora 9 with new rx should be 9x as someone else said.
My only experience with fast charging nimh at 1c was a wet ruined pack. At 1/4c they are OK.
Hook up SPC to the input red and black before the esc and get your 11.1v or whatever reading. HK even sells a T plug with smaller gauge jst plug (convert to servo plug) that fits in between battery and esc if you use Deans. (.89 ??).

Echallenged referencing another of your posts........Don't know how it can be backwards. USE the FUTABA type connector with tab opposite the ground wire and it won't go backwards.What comes with the rxs for that purpose!!!

Running the black wire is optional, as well. The ground is connected through the BEC, unless you are using a separate battery for the servo power.

Transmitter - Stick Knob & Extension Tip Thread sizes

Just to lighten things up a little, have just added a new link to
. Transmitter - Stick Knob & Extension Tip Thread sizes

Add a little one-upmanship (showmanship) and value to your A9
. 18ct Gold Stick Tips for JR
(4mm thread is to large for an Aurora 9 but 3mm surely made to order)

The Maxima has the same reboot voltage as the Minima, 2.6v.

It's not off topic. Many use Eneloops in their TX's including myself. Knowing how we should charge them is important.
