I have a Turbo Ace 91416 motor laying around. It worked great on my V100D01 with the stock (WK-WST-10A-L) ESC. As you can see in the photo the mini (JST?) plug for the RX is 3 wire. The Genius is 2 wire and bigger plug. Could I just solder the red and black wires and run this on my Genius?
Don't want to goof and fry the RX. Thanks. http://static.rcgroups.com/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif

No that wont work you would need the steve converter, the tail wont handle that motors power it will do full 360 blowouts :lol:

If you really want to use that motor they sell the esc with built in converter for 15 dollars.

If you just want more power on a budget pop in a mcpx brushed motor :thumbup:
