Hooking up an ESC

i m a noob. I am currently building my own Quadcopter. I am waiting for parts to arrive, and I am looking at these Hobbypower 30A ESC's and I ws wondering if they need to be prepped before I hook them up? What I mean is, I understand that a flight board needs to be prepped and such, so what about ESC's? Do they need to be adjusted, or uploaded with anything, or do I simply 'hook' these things up?

Appreciate any info you have. Thank you.

  • What i do recomend you is for you to calibrate them for your specific RC control i had a Flysky 6 channel controller.

  • Sry if this came out with 3 replies but idk how it came out that way. I´ll just give you one advice, when you have everything soldered + to + and - to - on your board always check with a multimeter that everythings OK, I bought an XT connector that was supposed to be "color coded" and turned out it had inverted color coding, so black meant VCC and red meant ground i think it was a factory problem but burned all my escs because I didnt check it before I plugged the Battery.

  • OK, I have these same hobbypower 30Amp ESC´s and I never preprepped them for flight so if yours are like mine they should work just fine.
