    Default Wiring for swordfish 300 pro

    I'm trying to wire the swordfish pro 300 to two batteries in series as described in the instructions given by the manufacturer. The problem I'm having is finding connectors for the 8MM wires.
    The red leads need to be Joined and the black leads need to be joined and then have a one positive wire, and one negative wire coming off of them. I need a clean way to make a Y connection.
    Can someone give me a solution?
    Thanks

    How about you plug the pos from one batt to the neg of the other and then plug the red to red on esc and black to black on esc, that will give you a series, a Y is usually paraelle conn.

    You have to have say two single 5,5 conn or larger on each batt. and one on the red and one on the black of the esc.

    Send a pic of the the wire set up below the one you posted please. That one you posted looks like paraelle to me.

    I think your right. But the instructions seem to demand it. I'm new and learning. Thanks for your patience.

    If using two lipos in series it would represent one of those in the photo. I would still wire as pictured in case you need parallel in the future.

    Yes it is. Is it necessary to run parallel? Only if needed. I would imagine though that if you have a 300amp capable esc that you'd probably need to run parallel.

    This picture would ASSUME you've added the jumpers per the instructions, neg - neg/pos - pos. You have the ability to add 2 sets of series lipos without using Y connectors. Protect the unused leads if you don't plan to use parallel.

    This would be if you wired neg - neg/pos - pos at the connector. If you need parallels you will have to use a Y connector.

    I'm using two 3 cell 8400mah lipo's 25c 11.1v. thanks for the help. I'm looking for hardware to make this clean.

    I think I would put the two reds from the esc in a large bullet conn and the two blacks from the esc in a large bullet conn. Then put the same ones on the lipos 2 per lipo and then connect the red from one lipo to the black of the other and then the red wire from one lipo to the red on the esc and the black from the other lipo to the black wire from the esc. then if you wanted to do paraelle you would have to make a 2 to 1 Y harness, two of them would be needed, there is a guy on ebay that made some stuff for me cheap, I can give you the info if you want it, Shawn.

    If you need the extra wire and connectors that will work. Keep it as simple as possible.

    The seller is backbaycomputerguy, do a search in remote controle under hobbies for connectors and you will find him and send him a message, he has some 6mm bullets that would work.
