Default Question about my new ESC

Got my new ESC today but I'm not sure what the W V U means on the 3 wires? My old ESC is on the left.

Who knows - but really it does not matter. Just hook it up and if the motor runs the wrong direction switch any two wires.

Hooked red to red, black to black and blue to yellow and it seems to work. To late to go flying, but I think it's ready.

Just for the record, it's and ESC

I've also no idea what W, V and U mean but don't worry about it.

Yes I thought that identification on the label was a bit confusing too. So to be completely clear it's an ESC which contains an S (Switched) BEC .

But still no idea why the leads are marked like that...

I did a bit research on it just to satisify my curiousity and it seems it is a labeling system of sorts. I am guessing but maybe for the factory. I have seen ESC lables, only by picture, read from right to left ABC and XYZ however this is the first I have seen UVW

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

SBEC = switching mode battery eliminator circuit.


Your right it is a ESC with a SBEC built in... so in reality it's both an ESC and and SBEC.

In my posts I was referring to this. Did not mean to cause confusion
