    Layout looks OK to me. For safety, I might suggest putting the LiPo in a battery box or secured down and in a fireproof bag.

    guessing the receiver is powered by the escs being plugged in
    Usually yes. There are some that don't supply voltage to the receiver but they are relatively few and far between in my experience.

    You are correct about the grey wires being the aerials for the receiver. The blue wire on the ESC I think is the motor + wire, though worth checking a wiring diagram or instructions if supplied. What does thd label say? The photo isn't clear, M1 and M2?

    I would say the M1 and M2 wires are the motor wires then. It is logical to say that blue, in that arrangement, is positive.

    I think the general deal with ESCs is the labelled + and - are for the battery to plug in (as they have to be in the right polarity - i.e., if you wire the ESC to the battery the wrong way the Magic Smoke can escape), whereas the motor wires aren't labelled negative and positive as they can go either way - switching them over will just reverse the direction of the motor. Motors don't have a polarity as such.

    The motor wires aren't polarity sensitive, there's no positive or negative motor wire. Just hook them up to the motor and if it spins the wrong way, flip them around.
