16 Gauge Silicone Wire, Ultra, 1ft: Red
High strand count silicone coated copper wire is essential with higher power electric power systems. This wire is lower resistance than the same diameter of solid copper, meaning more power gets from the batteries to the motor with less wasted as heat.
With a sensorless brushless system, extremely low resistance wire is required to enable the ESC to read the extremely low voltage back EMF; this is crucial in ensuring smooth easy motor starts. The ultra-high strand count and silicone coating means the wire is very flexible which prevents work hardening and breakage with use.
- Do not exceed more than 18 inches of total wire length between the battery and ESC (this includes the wire already on the ESC and battery).
- Do not solder wires directly to the circuit board. Doing so will damage the ESC and void the warranty.
