HI do any one know if i can add a diode in from of the power source terminal to stop any voltage leak back to some current sensor that will be place in front of the controller . see attached file

below is there current sensor and temp sensor that i am trying to add

Two things:

1. Normally we measure current at Motor side, not the power source.
2. The diode to prevent flyback power will need to be high current because in normal condition, it will need to allow current to flow to the driver, right?

Actually the current sensor can accept current flow from both direction, so there is no need to prevent current to flow back to battery.

And since you are using RC (Radio Control), just want to remind that MD30C does not take RC signal as control input, you will need some control to convert RC into standard PWM.
