Connecting the converter red power line to the middle spot of the ESC servo connection
pad. Then the black line to the lower spot. Finally the signal line in the top spot.
I just get rid of the middle two blue line of the converter, those are for tail motor
conversion. Now the ESC+converter should have one yellow line hanging out.
That need to connect to the mcpx board for main motor signals.

Flip the ESC over. Reconnect the battery adapter, and connect the motor wire
to the ESC.

Now test the ESC and motor is right direction. Connect a battery to the plug.
The ESC will make the motor have some initial tune. The red LED should start
blinking.

Touch the motor signal wire to the positive power will give the ESC full throttle.
Make sure you hold the motor properly in hand. I run out of hands to hold motor
and take picture at the same time.

You want the motor turn clock wise when you looking at the pinion. If it turn
counter clock wise, unsolder and switch any two motor wire.

Now you should have the ESC+convert+motor ready.
