I cant really see all the wiring, or which part you are worried about. Posting diagram would be helpfull for you and us so we can understand whats going on more clearly. Which black connection? Wire sizes dont need to be the same, depending on their location. In the parts you pull more current you want bigger wires. (The biggest ones are from batteries). I dont see the reason to get more wire sizes, its generally cheaper to buy few meters of red and black, and just use that. Depending on electronics, and current you will be supplying, you can calculate wire AWG. 10AWG is around 50amps, continuously which should be more than enough.
Just to be clear, if you plug that together right now it’s going to short and burn.
Hard to tell what is going on from the photo… are you running positive and negative through your loop key?
Don’t do like that !!!
Please post a picture how that part you posted is integrated in your hole build.
If red is plus and black minus of your battery you just short your battery and burn down everything!
A loop key should bridge the positive or the negative wire from your battery to the esc.
Don’t use bullet connectors. Get a xt90 plug, male site and solder the wires on there.
I wasn’t thinking by running both through the loop key was late for work when taking the picture haha. Can anyone help me in the right direction from this picture and please tell me if it’s wrong?I’m so close to getting it going again and I don’t want to fry my new focbox. Thanks again
I bookmarked this some time ago. Not my work.
Should look like this.
Hope this helps
Thank you! This is much appreciated and can’t tell you how glad I am that you saved this. I think I will do the same by saving this and give it a try.
Sure thing dude. Im new to this too. I Try to save everything that looks useful.
is the xt60 connectors doubled where the wires split to the battery and vesc?
Two for vesc
One for battery
Probably a dumb question but The other connector doesn’t go to anything right?
Hard to follow in text
It goes to the second esc. If we’re thinking of the same connector
Yeah, the second connector doesn’t go to anything. You don’t need to make the second connector, as that is for dual Vesc. Since you only have one Vesc, you only need one connector
Thanks guys that’s what I ment I hope to have it completed later tonight. What’s the correct way to turn the board on once it’s all completed? Plug the switch in first? Or turn on then plug your then plug in the xt 90 connector?
Yes but make sure to insulate those exposed soldering points.
You can use liquid electrical tape
Thanks it was my first time and new to soldering I will definitely do that or make another cleaner looking version. Just wanted to be absolutely sure it was done correctly minus me forgetting heat shrink. Thanks for the input and help.
