Angry My motor rotates reversely!

I have bought a Quark Plasma ProII, but after i have installed everything as followed as the manual said.
The motor rotates reversely, the troubleshooting ask to change the wires, but for the safety of my material, i want ask first to ensure which wires should be changed?
Anybody could tell me if change wires of brushless won't damage ESC in any condition?

Best regards

swapping the motor wires on a brushless esc-motor connection will not damage the esc or motor, a lot of esc's come with the same colour wire instead of 3 different colours even.. so yes it is safe to do this.

racing with less troublesome indeed

No Redzone, in manual and ESC cover has meant motor wires with A B C.
Is safety, isn't it?

It's unlikely, but check the motor timing isnt excessive as that might give the ESC a hard time reading the rotor position.

i got a brushless system, and if the motor goes the wrong way, you just swap the wires. all it does it reverse the polarity from the battery.
so then you motor will spin the right way.
no harm will be done to the ESC.

but if your so worried about reversing thw wiring, then reverse your controller. its harder to live with, but you wont have to worry about your esc

No, timing is unchangeagle look at the picture below.
No, the controller could just choosing for/rev or forward only, then nothing more!
Take a look a motor then make a comment to help me, please!

Like the guys have mentioned above, all you have to do is swap any 2 of the 3 wires going to the motor. Example: A to A, B to B and C to C is what you probably have so do the following, A to B, B to A and C to C.

I have been doing this for years. And it works on ALL Sensorless Brushless motors. No harm will happen to your motor or speedo but the motor will run the other way.
