Verifying ESC to Pixhawk Connection

I am using SimonK 30A ESC to connect to Pixhawk 1 Input 1-6. I noticed there are 3 wires in the connector and they are also supplying power to the board as well as the separate BEC power cable. I want to verify that I need to Remove the “Red” positive wire from the connector in this situation?

If your fc is powered by BEC then it is better to have esc not powering the board as they can drain power and gets hot.

Got it, I removed the power lead by slipping it out of the connector. :slight_smile:
