Exclamation novus cp / 4g3 dual brushless setup questions

Anyone able to post a couple pics of how they setup their chassis with the dual esc's required for dual brushless upgrades? I'm having a ton of trouble getting it all into the canopy.

Second question is what you hooked the Y adaptor up to? the main motor esc power & tail esc power? or the old power and the tail power? i'm guessing its the first but just wanted to be sure.

Thanks!!

Running a novus cp with the main and tail motor upgrades to brushless... Not yet using 20c but plan to...

Best to throw the Y adaptor away as too many of these plugs saps too much power. If you do use it, plug both main and tail esc into it. The receiver gets it's power from the main esc.

Ideally, you should connect the lipo to the main esc, and solder the tail esc power wires to the power wire terminals on the main esc.

It's much easier to get the stock canopy on, if you make new holes a bit further back
