Default Need help with receivers and motor fans.

Hi,
i need help plugging a motor fan into a receiver. I don't think it is the right connector to plug into the receiver. I have attached some photo's, might not work, as it is first time. Sorry about one of them being small, they're off google images!
Thanks

It's not the right connector, that's for a pc.

You can either cut the cables and solder them to the + & - on your esc or you can buy the right connector on eBay and fit it.

The right connector looks like this:



I've never seen a converter but it wouldn't be hard to make one. It'd be easier to just fit the right connector though.

You could also purchase a fan that's properly terminated and designed for your intended purpose.

the fan may not be able to provide enough air flow to cool your motor.
It must be designed for esc instead.
Go buy a correct 30mm or 40mm one.

I do already have a fan (2.5mm) and the right connector (below) that I removed from an old broken esc. (TEU-101BK (tamiya's stock esc))

How would I solder it when one has 2 wires, and the other has 3? (the connector at the start of the thread that I uploaded has 2 and the one above ^^^ has 3 wires)

There would be no yellow cable! That's just for servos and esc's.

Your fan only has positive and negative so you'd just fit them.

Sashimi's link tells you everything you need to know.

yes but I have an esc connector. If it will work in the same way then I don't want to waste money on another connector. If I cut the yellow cable off, then surely it would work in the same way as just having a positive and negative with no yellow cable ever existing.
What I'm trying to say is, I dont have the right connector, I have an esc connector. Would it work properly if I just removed the yellow cable? If it does work properly (or in the same way as the proper connector), then I see no point in wasting money on the proper connector.
