novak 1 esc wiring help

Post by Mike DeLaney »

I purchased a RC10 graphite buggy last week, the previous owner cut the receiver plug off the esc. I want to fix the esc to see if it works, but not sure about the wires. There are two black wires and one red wire. Does anyone know which wires are the signal, positive, and negative wires? Thanks for any help you can provide. Mike

If they are still molded together it will be black black red. Red is positive, center is negative, and outside black is signal. It had an airtronics connector on it with those colors. Doesn't matter but that's why it is like that

Thank you, I didn't want to burn up anything in case the esc is still good.

The negative and signal technically wouldn't hurt anything if reversed it just wouldn't work. The red is the important one :wink:
