  • Hi FPVrecon,

    According to a reply I got from Chris Anderson,

    you can cut both the Red (+) & Black (-) wires between the ESC

    and APM2, leaving only the PWM signal wire (white) connected,

    as the full system has a shared ground (black).

  • @ andycross1:

    It's my diagram, not Gerry's, but thanks.

    When you say "returns" - can you be more specific?

  • Hi Gerry

    I am about to do a very similar thing to you except I was going to use a OPTO ESC which gets around any potential  noise issues but answer your question do not connect the return (if your ESC has a BEC) shown in your diagram

  • @Gerry:

    Hi -

    Slowly getting the parts in place for my own APM2 Octo, and first ever.

    Made this wiring diagram just to make sure I got all the parts right,

    thogh since I will be using A UBEC, I still have a question (yellow mark)

    regarding the right way to go about this.

    I hope you find this helpful - :-)
