Traditionally, when powering a Rx from more than one source, such as using a BEC circuit and a separate Rx supply battery, the positive power feed from the ESC is disconnected. This avoids the double power feed.
I am embarking on a triple hand screw model with 3 x ESCs so each screw can then be controlled individually from the Rx.
In this situation, where all the Rx power will come from ESCs running off the same main battery (using the BECC), with no separate Rx battery supply, is it necessary to cut all the positive ESC supply leads except 1?
Appreciate any advice.
Thanks
Rowen

Yes that is correct you only need power supply from one feed . But I would recommend just removing the + pin from the plugs and taping it up rather than cutting the wires as you never know that they could be used in the future

Hi RHBaker

I would use the one in Midships!
For the BEC.
Disconnect the port and starboard!
