Now connect the ESC+converter+motor to the mcpx 3 in 1 board.
Again, using the foam pad to mount the ESC to the 3 in 1. You want the
converter LED facing out.

==== Edit for programming ESC ================

Skip this part if you don't need to program your ESC.

If you want to program the ESC. You need to have the heli
bind to the TX first before power on the ESC. So solder the
yellow signal wire guide by the next post. Then solder
the male battery plug in the front of the 3 in 1. Just the same
spot as the where the ESC power line is going to connect.

Now you can power on the heli first. Wait until the heli bind
to the TX then connect the male plug to the ESC battery plug.
That should able to get you into the programing mode.

Sorry I don't have a picture of doing the ESC programing.

========================================

Cut the ESC battery plug. Solder the ESC power line to the 3 in 1
power line in the front of the board.

Connect the battery to 3 in 1 to verify the ESC power line solder
correctly. The ESC should initialed with tune and red LED on converter
should come up with the blue LED in 3 in 1 board.

Again, if you connect the yellow line to the positive power, the motor
should turn in full throttle.

Almost there. Just one more soldering to do.
