ESC wiring and connections

Wiring Diagram

  1. 1.
    Solder contacts for motor-phase connections
  2. 2.
    LiPo Power supply GND -
  3. 3.
    LiPo Power supply +
  4. 4.
    PWM/Dshot signal input (servo signal)
  5. 5.
    PWM/Dshot signal GND (ground reference)
  6. 6.
    Solder jumper to set the direction of rotation (also in 3D mode)
  7. 7.
    Telemetry (e.g. On the KISS FC connected to TRX/TLM)
  8. 8.
    Status LED (indicates validity of the input signal)

Add a capacitor for 6S LiPo use

For 6S use it's a MUST to add an additional low ESR capacitor. Recommendation is minimum 330uF / 50V.

Connecting KISS ESC to Remote Control RX

You may use KISS ESC's on a plane or rover without the need of a flight control.

Motor rotation direction

This needs to be done only if you are NOT using DSHOT! KISS FC's as well as BetaFlight based FC's do support change of the motor spin direction via GUI / CLI command.
On delivery JP1 (6) is open. If a change of direction of motor rotation is desired, the jumper can be closed. Close the jumper by adding solder to the pads → building a solder bridge
