Question Hitec Electron 6 HELP

I just bought a Hitec Electron 6, and it isn't marked which way to plug the
ESC and servo plugs in.(pos...neg...sig) They will go on the pins either way. I'd like to get them plugged in the right way the first time so I don't fry everything
If anyone knows the answer, I would surely appreciate it.

Robert

I have one that I'm currently not useing. It's been a while since I looked at it but I think there was a sticker on the edge by the connectors which showed the polarity, I could be wrong I would have to look at it again. From what I can remember I think the signal wire faces toward the crystal. Like I said I realy can't remember so don't take my word for it.

I just looked at the manual http://www.hitecrcd.com/Manuals/Rece...0RX%20inst.pdf and it said if you have the plugs backwards that not to worry, your servos wouldn't work just reverse them. Just hook up your ESC to it and one servo and see. Put the signal wire towards the crystal first and see.

I believe the black wire should go to the outside edge.
