Well my ESC let out the magic smoke last night after about 5 min in the light snow and I'm not real happy. I only had maybe 10-13 runs on this setup, which is as follows: Hobbywing SC8 esc, Tenshock 401v2 3800kv geared 12-54, SPC 6500 65c 3s batt.
Not sure what to replace it with or why it took a crap so soon. The only thing that I didn't have quit right was the soldering job to the motor( not very good solder joints) but I wouldn't think that would have caused the esc to burn up. Looking for budget suggestions for replacement for and new esc and possibly motor too. It still spins freely put if something is possibly wrong with it too, I don't wanna risk another ESC. What do you guys recommend for my money pit?
