Esc question regarding bec's

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a HK ESC that is suppossed to work with six cells but likes three better when it comes to putting power into my reciever. I found with six cells I got a lot of blank spots during operation but not so with three cells. So I'm planning on using a remote BEC powered by three cells then two three cell packs for power on my motor wired in series. My question is can I remove the power wire of my ESC from the reciever but leave the ground and signal in place and still have the ESC function normally. In a nutshell use a power source other than the one from my ESC due to my HK bec not living up to the challenge.

Yes, it's done all the time, just remove the middle wire from the ESC to the receiver and you'll be fine. The other thing you can do is get a ubec and wire it in parallel with the esc to the battery instead of using a completely different power source.

Both a ubec from the main battery and a separate battery w/ regulator will work.

Thanks Waylander I was planning on using one of the two batteries I'm going to use in series for my motor to power the BEC.
