MrMel has a setup video showing you how to hook up the y-cable on the mini vbar.

And here is the wiring chart from Mikado..

I'm running a miniVB / WR SuperMini BEC / Hyperion phase sensor. The wiring is crazy... but I chose to plug 1 BEC wire direct into RX C, then i made a custom 3-way "Y" that plugs into RX B that accommodates ESC throttle/BEC line 2/phase sensor power.

works perfectly but its quite a lot to negotiate.

I wasn't either, I didn't realize your castle bec wires up different than my SportBec. The throttle wire from my esc plugs in to the sport, then the sport gets plugged in to the throttle port on the mini vbar. When you add the phase sensor in to the mix you run out of ports on the mini v. That's where the y-cable come in to play for my setup. From hndaluva's description I see why a 3 way y connector would be needed for your setup.
