View Full Version : Uninsulated wires

I recently purchased two 30mm EDF with brushless motors and notice all 3 leads pass through the same insulation. Do these need to be seperated and independently insulated or will just the varnish on the wire work.

Generally that varnish on the wires is pretty good. Just be careful not to make sharp bends that result in the varnish "cracking", exposing bare copper.

But, it would probably be a good idea to get some proper sized shrink tubing, and shrink it around each of the three motor wires. You can find this shrink tubing almost anywhere, from Home Depot to the local hobby shops.

Simple, and effective.
