I have a question regarding Slide 11 with details related to the ESC Connections.
I believe this indicates that the red wire (BEC 5V Output) on each of the esc signal connections should be removed “Because 5V not needed, cut the connections to avoid overheating”. Is this assuming the esc connections are made to the Pixhawk autopilot?
Wire name “BEC Output” (5v, 500mA) seems to imply that the BEC can be used as a motor controller and/or as a 5V power supply (for the Pixhawk?). Is this wire meant to be used to power the Pixhawk or other 5V device? Or is it meant for some other purpose. Slide 9 shows that we are using the 3DR Power Module to power the Pixhawk. I guess that makes the red wires on the ESCs redundant?
The diagram provided at http://docs.bluerobotics.com/besc/ does not show this mod to red wire in ESC wiring.
Can someone confirm that eliminating the connection of the red is is correct? and give some background on when this wire is/is not needed?
