Do i Need A New Esc
ok first of all call me stupid...Yesterday i went out with the Spart had a great 20mins with my lipos.I switched out my lipos to the stock batteries and made one more pass on the lake (this is where i became stupid) i left the batteries connected to the esc all night.Today i looked and the batteries were melted inside the spartan.I took those batteries out and pluged in my lipos and within about 5 seconds the lipos swelled up. I think i need a new ESC. The esc i have or had was a Seaking 180.Any thoughts?
I'm no electronics expert, but the speed at which your lipos swelled, that sounds like a dead short.
I don't know if leaving the batteries connected could have been the cause, but it is possible it fried the ESC and shorted it out.
You can check all your wiring for evidence of a short or bad connection, but kind of sounds like a new ESC is needed. bummer.
Like always thanks for the help Kevin.
When i got home from work tonight i tried to hook up a 6s 1p to the ESC got a poof and some smoke and thats all she wrote the ESC went bye bye.I have already ordered a new one from kintech.
