Quote from: davethepitch on Monday,March 04, 2013, 22:12:03 I was under the impression that the small three wire servo type connectors that come from the esc';s go on right hand side of the flight controller and attach to the rows of three pins labelled M1, M2, M3, M4 although i am not sure which motor is supposed to be which.
QuoteAnd does the five three wire receiver connectors that come out of the receiver go onto the three rows of pins on the left of the flight controller labelled AIL, ELE, THR, RUD, AUX.
QuoteI was sure i read somewhere that the red wires on three of the esc connectors need to be removed as this can upset the flight controller depending what esc';s you are using.My esc';s are the Rctimer 20 amp http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo=goods_details.dwt&goodsid=147&productname= and i am not sure if i can just connect them as they are with all the three wires on each esc intact or do i need to remove the reds on some of them.
QuoteAlso i think i read somewhere that i need to solder a red power wire from the distribution board to the KK flight controller to give it power.
QuoteI have been reading different threads all over the place about these KK boards and i have confused myself.

If you have problems with this you can cut the red wire on M2, M3, and M4, leaving M1 alone. Now you can be sure that only one of your 4 ESCs is powering the KK2 board. I am pretty sure you don';t need to do that though. Just leave the wires as they are unless they are definitely causing you problems.

Quote from: BiffaDave, why don';t you just remove the red pins from the ESC plugs and be done with it instead of worrying (obviously leaving one to power the board)
