Hooking upp ESCs to the APM2

Is there any danger in connection all 4 of my ESCs to the APM?

Not just the signal lines, but all pins including the 5V for powering up the system.


Seems many just use one of the esc but for me it will cause lots of problem with my thougt out layout,

and my PDB doesnt have inputs/outputs for the signals and 1x 5V out.

  • Using Turnigy Plush  40A ESC so it should be linear, so then I will connect all, little extra fail-safe is never wrong :)

  • I read somewhere on here that if you have linear ESCs it's okay, but if not just unplug all but the 1st pin.
