To cut or not !

I can only say that I have been building my scratch quad using new naza 2 and hk 30 amp speed controllers, flashed with Simon k. I have removed all but one of the red wires from the esc's. When I removed all 4, the receiver would not power up. Replaced just one of the red wires (cant say which one) and all works well.......Hope this helps

Dont cut them just pop the positive lead out and electrical tape it back along the lead, that way you can always put it back in case you needed to recalibrate or use it somewhere else. Use a thin flat edge like a razor against the locking plastic insert to get the red power wire out from the connector.
I have all red removed naza doesnt need power from esc, on my simonk escs.

Yes do not cut! Just undo the wire at the connector and use some heat shrink or electrical tape to hold it.
