Noob question - Chaos 30A BLHeli_32 ESC - wiring

Hi there,

I’m currently building my first quad based around F450 frame with RPi2 and Navio 2. I’ve bought myself some Chaos 30A BLHeli_32 ESC for the quad, but I’m not sure about the black and white wires from the ESC and how they connect to the Navio 2 pins. From what I’m reading these ESC’s do not have a BEC so I don’t think I have to cut any wires.

My question is; have I got the order right? White wire to the top, black wire (assuming gnd) to the bottom of the pins on the Navio 2?

Thanks in advance for help :slight_smile:


I am using ESCs flashed with BL heli too Aikon ak32 35a. I am just learning about them myself. I have mine hooked up as you described and they seem to work (I have only tested motors with Mission Planner). I’m looking into whether or not they need to be calibrated and how to do so.
Best of luck!

Without knowing the wires on your ESC, i would guess with is signal, black is GND and should be connected to Navio accordingly.

Thanks for the responses here; I can confirm that all is working good now.
