I'm awaiting the answer to this myself.

This is still not the case in the stock ESC / External BEC situation in the Banana hobby 1700mm Red tails (or other warbirds w/stock setup)

My ESC plugs into the Receiver. My ESC also has a BEC connected to it that has only 2 wires to plug into "somewhere" Black & Red wires attached to the BEC.

Past posts say to "cut" a red wire and plug into any open channel on RX (or Y harness a channel) and others say to "cut" one of these red wires. (?). AND still others say *(if an older spektrum RX) not to plug it in anything at all.

Originally I "thought" that this 2 wire ( + and - ) BEC was supposed to be plugged into another 4.2v - 6v power supply????? (It seemed)

Ubec


here is a way to disconnect the RED wire in a UBEC setup...without modifying your ESC...use a servo extension as the mod.

I.d say if your confused and hesitant, just eliminate the stock esc's internal bec and the stock ext. bec and go with a CC 20a bec pro like i did. Then youll have know worries if you did it right or wrong.

What is a CC 20a BECpro?

CC bec 20a pro


heres the answer. However if it may be a pain to remove the esc and wires to solder it into place, but you can do a short coupling with a male and female connector. Just solder to bec to a short 3" 12-10 gauge wire with you male and femal connector of choice on ea. end that way it plugs in between the esc and battery, just leave it connected always to the esc connector. However soldering directly to the esc connector is the prefered method, but i have done this before and its no issue.

You could SELL them, but unless they float it would be hard to sale them.

and just fyi, I considered doing the same with pvc and a several rack plane holder. A big, secure one can be a PITA to make. PVC isn't cheap either.

Just a correction about the Real Sound. Model Solutions makes the Shockwave unit, they do not use the term "Real Sound". The Real Sound is a custom more expensive unit advertising on youtube. I actually think its better and more realistic.

On my 1.7 P47 I plugged the ESC to throttle port of RX and other into battery port. Works just fine for me. No clipping of wire, makes for two power inputs but voltage stays same as if I used redundant battery on my standard big stuff

My Bad, you're correct. Here is the link folks, the sound quality is awsome and much more refined than the benedini, even though the Benedini is also good system...I have and use 3 of them.

You are correct. Not a opto esc. My bad.
Where can we get a jumper to fit the UBEC. Mine on new 1.7 Corsair is missing.
Will send request to BH to see if they have one!
