@Bernd
'methinks' that you have overlooked the ESC's built-in BEC.
So you need only a battery for the ESC, and the receiver's supply is established when you plug it in.
Saves you one battery set.

" I didn't realize you need two power supplies to power the ESC and the receiver."



You don't.

As Helmut says, the receivers 5-Volt power supply is derived from the E.S.C.s 'B.E.C' ...

... 'Battery Elimination Circuit' ...

... when the white/red/black 3-way cable from the E.S.C. is connected to the 'FlySky' receiver.

ALWAYS connect this to Channel-2 on the receiver !





IF the receiver was used with say a glider or sailboat, where there is NO motor used or E.S.C needed ...

... then a separate P.S.U. would be required for the 'FlySky' receiver ...

... which should be connected, in this case, to the dedicated P.S.U connectors on the receiver.



The switch on the E.S.C.s 'flying-leads' is indeed the on/off switch ( see my Post on Page-1 ).

Full E.S.C. Wiring Details For Battery Motor ON/OFF Brake & Receiver

The 'brake' function is only going to be noticeable on R.C. cars.

The post never mentioned where to plug the battery in.
I assumed it needed to be plugged into the Receiver and not the ESC.
So yes, it works when you plug the battery into the ESC.

From my original Post No.2 on Page-1 :-



The 2 pairs of red & black wires emerging from the E.S.C. for the battery & motor are ...

... cable-plug is for the battery ...

... cable-socket is for the motor.



The 3-way white/red/black wires emerging from the E.S.C ...

... should be connected to the 'FlySky' receivers Channel-2, observing correct polarity.



The single pair of red/red wires emerging from the E.S.C. ...

... terminates in a cable mounted general on/off switch.



:old dude:

Bernd,

Thanks for posting those photos.  Keep them coming as I'd like to see how everything comes together.

Si,

No where in your post do mention that the battery needs to only plug into only the ESC and not into the receiver.
You may have thought it but you didn't put it down in words.

Micheal,

I try to make everything clear and understandable with pictures.
Leaves little to be assumed.
More to come as I progress.

" No where in your post do mention that the battery needs to only plug into only the ESC and not into the receiver."



Yeah ... Why would I ?

In direct response to your Post-1 question ...

... My Post-2 VERY CLEARLY explains to you PRECISELY which connector the battery DOES plug into.

Why on Earth ? would I waffle on, describing loads of things, which it DOESN'T plug into ?




" You may have thought it but you did't put it down in words."



WHAT ?

I haven't "thought" any such thing !

My instructions explain what DOES need to be done, NOT what DOESN'T !


If you bother to spend some time & read them properly ...

... they simply & concisely describe a bench-test of ALL the required connected components.

Battery ... Motor ... Receiver & connection ... on/off switch.


:brill:


Here they are AGAIN :-



But before trimming any wires, or changing any connectors ...

... I decided that a 'spaghetti bench test' would be wise.



The 2 pairs of red & black wires emerging from the E.S.C. for the battery & motor are ...

... cable-plug is for the battery ...

... cable-socket is for the motor.



The 3-way white/red/black wires emerging from the E.S.C ...

... should be connected to the 'FlySky' receivers Channel-2, observing correct polarity.



The single pair of red/red wires emerging from the E.S.C. ...

... terminates in a cable mounted general on/off switch.



I actually don't know what the switch on the P.C.B. is for.

But it MAY be an on/off switch for a 'brake' function.

Which if true, will have little effect for trains on either setting.



When the stuff is wired on the bench, I'll flip it and see !





- - - - - - -


I fail to see how any clearer or more concise directions could be written.

Those few lines & paragraphs actually took some considerable time to write !

Certainly not one liners, full of typos etc. bashed out in seconds.

Likewise all the follow on information I have Posted regarding E.S.C. Voltages & regulators etc.

EFFORT has been put in here to both describe & illustrate things as well as is possible.



I guess I understand now why automobile manuals always say ...

... DON'T PUT WATER IN THE GAS TANK ! :dope:



:Crazy:



Si.

Really?

28 lines later, two pictures and 3 Emoticons you end with :Crazy:

Now that's crazy.
A simple post like, "You don't use the plug on the receiver. You use the plug on the ESC. It has a BEC." Takes a lot less 28 lines.
Perhaps I don't speak the Queens English and understand what your saying.

34 lines later

1 picture

&

3 emoticons ... in fact.

Not crazy in the least.

As I have already said, WHY STATE WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CONNECT ?

Like don't connect your Mains A.C. supply directly to your rails perhaps ??



If you're going to criticize my Posts for essentially a lack of clarity ...

... then, for sure, the original Post is gonna get quoted to show otherwise !

It was all said, clear as a bell, done & dusted, at the end of Post-2 !!

READ IT !
 


" Perhaps I don't speak the Queens English and understand what your saying."



I think you just need to spend a moment or two reading what has been laboured over for your benefit.

28 lines & 2 pictures ??

Mmm  .  .  .
