I just got my new toy... and couldn't wait for the grass and road to dry. I took the new Brushless e-revo out for two sets of batteries worth of fun. Charged up the batteries and dropped them back in. Did a couple jobs and 30min later when I came back -
it wouldn't turn on... changed the batteries as I thought they might be the issue... and the new batteries made the speed controller smoke. I shut it off and called the hobby store.
after looking closer both batteries that were in it (stock ones) the wires were melted and they were showing large amounts of heat.
the guys in the shop said i let too much water get in and that could have caused it.
Now I'm looking at $180 for a new speed controller and $80 for a new set of batteries. This is getting to be pretty pricey for one run!!!
anyone else have this sort of issue?
