Re: esc extension

Adding a small ceramic .1 in parallel will do nothing for what happens inside non Low ESR capacitors, yes it may well lower the measured ESR of the 2 together but it's like adding a garden hose pipe along side the Mersey Tunnel to help traffic flow :) Low ESR capacitors are not hard to find, the rul...

Re: esc extension

Use thicker motor wires than normal because of the length and twist the 3 together to minimise any interference from them.
If adding capacitors to the battery cables then use Low ESR ones

Re: Stolen Van HJ 61 NJU White ford Transit

Its worth fitting a hidden switch or link somewhere to the electric fuel pump, something like an XT60 that can be pulled out in the same way as removing the rotor arm from a petrol distributor.

What this means is that if the insurance company will wave the requirement to register then a mass boycott is on the cards !

Re: Setting up a twin

Do not extend the battery wires on the ESC's, only use one BEC or a dedicated BEC instead of the ones built into the ESC's. You can extend the ESC battery wires using capacitors, but that makes things more complicated than you want to look at ! I think I understand what you are asking, Opto isolatio...

Re: Setting up a twin

If both red wires are left in place then the voltage regulators in the esc's will fight against each other and get confused.
Do not extend the battery wires on the esc, extend the wires to the motor if needed.
