RC Maker 3D Pro ESC wire organiser

RC Maker have introduced their new ESC wire organiser for the use with most brushless electronic speed controllers. Wiring is difficult, especially on the new mid motor chassis with the ESC behind the motor. The belt is in the way and there really isn’t much room. That is why the designers have gone and made it a whole lot easier for the drivers. 3-D-printed from high quality composite material, the wire organiser keeps all three motor wires, plus the sensor wire bunched together, and stuck down. The part is also very useful for keeping the wires organised in 1/12th on-road, and 1/10th off-road chassis and it accepts any wires, 12 gauge or smaller, and all sensor wires, flat or bunched. The organisers is usable floating or taped down using optional double sided tape.
