I've been running the MMP & 5.5T Novak combo for about a month now and have been loving it. Last night I was setting the gear mesh by sound and then all of a sudden sparks and a good puff of smoke. I unplugged my batt and checked all my connections. Everything was correct and the motor was not bound up at all. The ESC still turns on but when I apply throttle it has serious cogging issues and needs a 'kick start' to get moving sometimes. I have read on RCtech that is has happened to quite a few people and I want to know if it has happened to anyone here.
3s 5000mah batt
Temps have always been in check
Is the 5.5T too much for the MMP to handle in the long run?
