ESC Breakdown








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







  • Soldering each of the three motor cables a motor to each one of the three solder pads (1 – see breakdown above).
  • LiPo power cable with plug solder (2 + 3 above). IMPORTANT!!! Take note of the polarity, otherwise the ESC/controller will be immediately destroyed when connecting the power supply. This can potentially damage the LiPo as well.
  • Solder signal cable, white or yellow cable (4), the black wire to (5).
  • Note: On delivery status JP1 (6) is open. If a change of direction of motor rotation is desired, the jumper can be closed. This can be accomplished simply by adding solder to the pads, thus building a solder bridge.


Safety Warnings:

  • Due to the regenerative braking, the KISS ESC should only be powered by LiPo batteries.
  • Never start a brush-less motor in your hands!
  • While starting up with propellers mounted, always care for distance yourself and objects
  • Never power up your ESC/speed controllers without a valid signal transmitter (receiver or FC) is connected.
  • The KISS ESC can be locally heated up to 80 ° C during operation!
  • While soldering do not connect a voltage source at the ESC / speed controller.
  • Some components on the KISS ESC can be destroyed by static charge. When handling such electronics, make sure to be grounded
