These ESCs are the ultimate in plug-and-play. In keeping with all modern hobby RC gear: The red and black 14awg wires are the ESC’s power-in, the two black 16awg wires are the ESC’s output. The small three pin connector (standard Futaba plug) is the radio control input which plugs into your radio set’s receiver. Be sure to connect the radio and power inputs in the correct polarity; reverse polarity may irreversibly damage your ESC and surrounding electronics.
