Default Show your wiring please!

Building my first quad... trying to figure out the best way to:
wire the 4 esc to power - should I just solder them all together? is there a 4 into 1 plug somewhere that can be used or should make one with bullet connectors???

is there a "power distribution" board available?

any pics would be great!!!

Well, a power distribution board is available for some frames, not all, so if your didn't come with one there's a good chance you will have to do without. Besides, it only adds unneeded weight.

Here are few pics of my power harness (that I soldered myself). Wires are 14AWG soldered together into a 5.5mm bullet connector, the other ends are each soldered to 3.5mm bullet connectors. Further down is my overall wiring:

Perfect Arxangel! that is exactly what I had in mind... I did find a cool little distribution board, but I think your solution is simpler and I would have to "find" a place to mount the distribution board.

Thanks for you quick response!!!
