When setting up two vescs, is it common to just split the power button wires between the two, or is there a better method.

Depends which version you have… if you have the older 4 pin button you only need to carry over the switch input to the second esc.
So pin 1 is your common (vbat) and 2 is the input.
Or you could bridge those two on both ESC’s and use a loopkey.
I have new D75s. The power button, which is larger than the previous version of the D75, has 3 wires (black (gnd), red (5v), and white (sw). The switch port is 7 pin, but only those three are used.
Not sure how to set up a loopkey.
Also, my battery is set up with two xt90 power jacks for two vescs.
Are you saying that the three pin button has to be set up with a loopkey instead of just connecting the switch (white) to the second vesc from the first?
I didnt mention that this is a single 14s6p with two xt90 power jacks for powering each vesc
This is my power switch port. I have 5v, gnd, and switch connected. What now? Is it just a matter of running just the white/SW wire to the second vesc switch port?
For anyone following, this is the official answer from David YU at MakerX:
Hi, You can connect the SW pins on both D75s in parallel， This way you can control two ESC switches at the same time.
I have to say that I’m really impressed by the response times at MakerX and actual support, unlike others that give the runaround!!
Just so y’all know, my 3-pin button is actually 4-pin. One of the pins doesn’t have anything connected and it’s sort of hidden.
But the wiring is the same for the 8-pin connector as it is for the 4-pin on the board. The poles on the button are not of concern.
