    I need to run 2 esc's from the same battery, but only one or the other will work. I know that the receiver gets it's power from the ESC, and the Rx in turn powers the servos. Does anyone think that disconnecting the red power lead between one of the ESCs and the Rx would help?
    Ch 1 steering servo
    Ch 2 drive ESC
    Ch 3 accessory ESC

    It will help keep your receiver safe from voltage spikes. Definitely disconnect one of the red wires from one ESC.

    After quite a bit of testing, my problem was caused by a faulty power switch!
