Wiring Harness Sets - For VMAX Power Packs
VMAR Wiring Harness Sets for VMAX Power Packs contain all of the wiring and connectors to install and operate the components of multi-motor VMAX Power Packs and any servos included with the power pack. (Note: Single motor power systems include discrete wiring components and do not use a wiring harness "set" per se.)
 
VMAR Wiring Harness Sets are factory designed to fit into the applicable VMAR model with its applicable VMAX power system and any included servos. All of the connectors have been factory installed. 
 
VMAR Wiring Harness Sets are:
  • Included with VMAX Power Packs for the applicable model.
  • Available as a stand alone accessory for use with VMAX Power Modules for the applicable model.
  • Provide for fast and reliable installation of VMAX Power Packs and Power Modules into VMAR multi-motor electric models. 
    • Note: Modelers who are not experienced with multi-motor electric flight systems are strongly encouraged to use the VMAR Wiring Harness Set applicable to their VMAR multi-motor model. Scratch building and installing a reliable wiring harness set for a multi-motor electric model requires approximately 8 hours of work & considerable knowledge and experience.
  • May be suitable for use with some third party power systems and servos supplied by end users.
 
A typical VMAR Wiring Harness Set (WHS) for a multi-motor model contains the following:
  • Aileron Wiring Harness (WHA) to connect two aileron servos in the wings to the aileron channel of the receiver in the fuselage. 
    • (Note: The aileron wiring harness does NOT provide for flaperon operation using a computer radio and two discrete receiver channels. VMAR models utilizing two aileron servos will usually support flaperon functionality in conjunction with the aileron wiring harness if additional aileron extensions are purchased in addition to the aileron wiring harness included with the wiring harness set).
  • Throttle Wiring Harness (WHT) to connect multiple Electronic Speed Controls (ESC) to the throttle channel of the receiver in the fuselage.
  • Power Wiring Harness (WHP) to provide Positive (+) and Negative (-) power to multiple motors from a single battery (fused in line).
Depending on the model itself the VMAR Wiring Harness Set may also contain:
  • Elevator Wiring Harness (WHE) to connect one or more elevator servos located near the tail to the elevator channel of the receiver in the fuselage.
    • (Note: In some models the elevator servo is located in a servo tray near the receiver itself and a long control rod connects the servo to the elevator... this arrangement does not require an elevator wiring harness.)
  • Rudder & Steering Wiring Harness (WHR) to connect one or more rudder servos located near the tail and a ground steering servo to the rudder channel of the receiver in the fuselage.
    • (Note: In some models the rudder servo is located in a servo tray near the receiver itself and a long control rod connects the servo to the rudder... this arrangement does not require an rudder wiring harness. Other models may not offer ground steering via a servo dedicated to controlling a nose or tail wheel and the wiring harness will not provide for such)
  • Other wiring harnesses applicable to the particular VMAR model.
