    I can't seem to find any advice on this one. How do you get to the power leads? I realize you can make the change at the esc board but is there another way?

    I saw that one but its for an older, less crowded version. There are other videos as well but none that are relevant to the vision plus.
    I've been away from this board for a while and now I see that there may be some other issues with the new parts.

    I'm waiting as well, I have a ver 2 but have yet to install ver 3 Motors and ESCs. I'll hold off until the V2 parts need to be replaced.

    If you open it up you'll see the problem. The esc's come with the power wires pre-installed so presumably you unsolder the old ones at the main board which is how the videos demonstrate. That is fairly straight forward for 3 of them, the front left however is buried.

    Then why not just use the existing power wires from the mainboard, ie remove the new ones from the ESC

    I realize that. I was wondering if someone had done it and had a better way.

    Boy I would really like to get my hands on the set of 'normal' voltage readings at different locations. We may be able to stave off some problems and more importantly ignore things that are fine.
