Don't forget to remove the red pin from one of your ESC connectors. Otherwise you get two (slightly) different voltages, linear lbec and battery, or lbec and lbec, fighting each other. Or in the case of switching sbecs, two frequencies fighting each other.

No need to remove the red pin if you have a bec-less controller, or if you have an optocoupled controller.
Also no need to remove linear LBEC red wire if manufacturer says so, but you must remove it when using switching SBECs.

(UBEC is a propriatery brand name, a generic informationless acronym, I prefer LBEC, linear, and SBEC, switching, those two acronyms contain more info.)

But donīt cut the red wire, you may need it again in another plane.
