    Thanks everyone for your input, your replies gave me confidence to remove the red wire, which I have done and completed the rest of the wiring. All works perfect, 2 outer motors on left stick forward and reverse, centre motor on right stick forward and reverse. The servo works centre rudder which in turn is coupled to the port and starboard rudders, off the right stick side to side. All worked perfectly until I noticed the outer props were turning the same way,easily rectified I just swapped the wires from one side of one motor to the other, this was because they are left and right hand props. They turn over really smooth and when used with the centre motor should give a good turn of speed. The centre motor on its own should be sufficient for docking and slow manoeuvres.now all the wiring is done I have fitted the deck after first drilling and plugging 4 holes to facilitate the removal of the 4 outer motor mounting screws as these are inaccessible once the deck is sealed and fitted

    Hi
    If your esc has bec, then you need to remove the red wire, so with two esc you need to remove one red wire this is so that your RX does not get two power feeds, if you leave it as is then you could just burn out your RX, (don't ask how I know)
    Hope that this help's

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    hi.
    Assuming you are powering the rc reciever from the esc you have to disconnect the positive from one esc.
    so there is only one source of power.
    i am not sure why you have to do this but someone will know.
    Have you tried google.

    Please can anyone help me please,
    I have 3 M60 motors port ,centre, and starboard, as can be seen in my crude wiring diagram I hope to control the centre with its own esc. And the outer motors with the other esc.
    My query is, the 3 wire connections between the RX and the ESC has black, red, white, wires
    does the red power the Rx?
    So do I need to disconnect one from one of the Escs?
    L
    I hope my diagram is readable and someone can give me peace of mind
    Yours hopefully Roger
