Introduction: External Power Button to an ESC
I build an electric skateboard and I need to add a external switch to my ESC to be able to put all my electronic in the same enclosure.
-ESC ( banggood : https://goo.gl/4n8kzB )
Step 1: Open the ESC
Very simple, unplug the wire for the fan and unscrew the 4 screws that hold the heatsink. After, with a screwdriver, remove the bottom part. Lift the last part of plastic to be able to see the little switch.
Solder the wire on the pushbutton. I put shrinktube to protect the wire and some hot glue to make the piece stronger. After solder the wires on each side on the ESC's switch.
Step 3: Close the ESC
I made two little holes in the top part of the enclosure to be able to close properly the box. Close the enclosure and your done!
