Hey all,

I'm wiring up a octo X heavy lift build from the ground up and I am looking for advice on how exactly to use the built in UBEC's in my Tmotor 80A ESC's. My level of electrical knowledge is lackluster at best (Black go to black red go to red durrr) My understanding is that the 3 wires coming out of the ESC are power ground and signal, in all my previous builds I've just plugged all 3 from the ESC into the flight controller and left it at that. However since my build has no step downs built into the PDB I was wondering if I could just plug in the signal wire from the ESC to the flight controller and run the power and ground from the ESC to my landing gear servos, LED's and other accessories.
