    Help! Do ESCs come with battery connectors?

Does anyone know, or do some ESCs come without connectors and I have to buy one and solder it on? It’s not the first ESC I’ve seen...

    What to do with a brushed ESC

    So the very first RC airplane that I ever built was the pico stick F. You all don't need to know if it flew or not, but skipping to the point- I have had the ESC from it for a long time. Its a 20a. I want to find some cheap brushed motors that I use for miscellaneous projects. What I need to...

    ESC beeping problem

    I got the tiny trainer speed build kit last week. I got everything from the FT starter bundle (So I'm using the Power Pack A, a Tattu 2 cell battery, and the Spektrum DXe Transmitter). Every time I move the throttle a little the ESC beeps at me and the motor jitters a bit. I believe that I...

    I have made my first scratch build for RC planes. When I connect the ESC to the battery and motor, the motor constantly beeps. Right now, nothing is connected to the receiver.
