Default 1/12 help needed


I picked up a 1/12 pan car. Had everything, but RX. There are 3 plugs for a receiver. One is the servo, other goes to the shrink wrapped thing behind the servo, the other goes to the 1S ESC but has the positive wire pulled out. Any ideas why this is set up this way? Any help is appreciated.

RX's and Servos like higher voltages than a 1s lipo can provide, and way more than a 1s lipo can provide under load. That's not a 1s ESC... that's why it needed the red wire pulled. The little thing behind the servo is a voltage booster, ideally givine 5-6v to the RX, ESC, and if you're lucky, transponder.

Thanks. Do I still plug the ESC plug into channel 2 on the RX? where does the booster plug into?

sorry for all the questions, this is my first time with 1S. Here is a pic of the ESC

yes, you plug the ESC into the throttle channel. You plug the booster into any other port on the receiver. It's going to act as a receiver battery.
