    Smoking after running

    Just wanted to know if anyone had an idea on what would cause a battery to overheat and melt a connection after running an 11.1 Lipo Battery? We ran this morning and after shutting down for lunch, Stampede began smoking and actually melted a battery connector.

    Were you in LIPO mode (green)?
    Did you leave it plugged in to the ESC?
