Solder the female 3.5mm bullet connectors to the ESC's output wires. Also solder connectors to the power input wires of the ESC. Make sure you keep track of what polarity of your connectors are so you don't connect positive to negative.

Also, please load the following settings to all 4 ESCs using the programming card:
  • Brake: Off
  • Battery Type: Li-xx
  • Cut Off Type: Soft-Cut
  • Cut Off Voltage: Low
  • Start Mode: Normal
  • Timing Mode: High
  • Li-Po Cells: 0 (meaning auto-detect)
  • Governor Mode: Off
