    Use your existing radio, no need for anything special.

    What are you trying to do? Kill it with loss of signal or hold a specific rpm?

    Like to be able to disengage boat till she in the water .so walking to pond and back before hatch is off I like to kill the throttle for safety. I believe some of you might Make the connection out side boat at the water.

    Simple to do.
    Some short pieces of wire & some bullet connectors.
    One of the red wires plugs into the positive of the battery, & the other one plugs into the positive of the ESC.
    The black wire is the loop between the two on the outside of the boat.
