    Hi Everybody,

    Does anyone have any experience with the 4 - 1 esc brains?"

    It wont be that specific one, but i was going to use two of them rather than 8 x esc for x8 config?

    My reasoning was to cut down on alot of wiring.

    I am exploring the idea of 18650 batteries in series for the power, any suggestions vs conventional power packs?

    The motors i am running require 6S

    I was going to use the Emax 4 in 1 but I changed my mind when I got it. It's a lot bigger than I thought and really heavy. I have mine on the bottom of the motor mounts. Nice and neat and as a bonus I'm using BLHeli ESCs which have 2 face melting LEDs for orientation which you can program for different colors
