Default UBEC and Opto ESC

Great info from Chellie on UBEC. The only thin I would add is that if you use an OPTO ESC such as this:

you do not pull the red wire on the ESC lead to the receiver. An OPTO ESC does not have a BEC built into it so you have to use a UBEC or separate receiver battery pack, but if you pull the red wire on the ESC lead the ESC will not function. I found that out on my first OPTO, as luck would have it I just pulled the lead rather than cutting the wire so no harm no foul.
