    I figured that it may be on the short side when comparing specs, but it was a perfect fit. Just had to grab one more flat head screw.

    When using the CC BEC, you need to disconnect the power wire from the ESC to the receiver:


    However, to use the Field Link and Castle Link programming options, the ESC harness needs to have the red wire intact:


    I picked up a 3in servo extension to bridge the gap. The middle/power wire was removed, while the remaining wires were fastened together with CA. Amazingly, the CA remained flexible, allowing me to route the wire at my discretion. Top – ESC wire. Middle – 3 inch extension. Bottom – Middle wire removed:


    Leaving the connection between the ESC harness and the modified servo extension outside of the receiver box will allow me to easily connect the programmer at will:

    Haha nice! Can't see me putting my CC BEC and $90 Hitec servo in something I bash to death. Think I'll keep it in me crawler.

    Groovy. My next project will be a dual ESC crawler, hence the four channel transmitter. Or maybe a boat... or a 1/5 gas buggy... Either way, I'll go full kit on the next build.

    Crawlers are fun...but in a completely different way from the Stampede. I do like the slow intricacy of trying to get up and over obstacles. Also you don't need a mass of space. A boat could be fun!

    Yes, I was thinking of a boat as well for my next rc. Not now, but sometime late this year I might be getting a boat.

    This one perhaps? http://traxxas.com/products/models/marine/5707Lspartan

    Saw videos of that boat on youtube. Really fast!


    doubletapdaddy ,
    I really love how your project is coming along nicely...

    Thanx. Although I live in Florida, where the tallest things to climb are speed bumps and parking blocks, crawlers really fascinate me. However... I do live on the water, so a boat will be in my stable sooner or later. You know, I probably should complete this one first.
