Just recently picked up this ‘broken’ Acton S2 for 100 bucks!

Back on topic.
I’ve always wanted a small, inexpensive shopping mall board for cruising around town. This came up on the Sydney Esk8 facebook group and I couldn’t resist!
It also came with an extra set of dual hubs with brand new PU sleeves directly from Acton, obviously down the road I’d like to rebuild this into a 4WD cruiser.
Fuck, the wires are so damn tiny! I’m guessing max 2A per phase wire
Dusty as shit!
The issue is that the board doesn’t latch onto the on position when the button is pushed, the leds light up only whilst the button is held down, Others on reddit have had the same problem. I’ve held down the tiny surface mount button on the esc which doesn’t solve the issue.
The battery seems fine and reads at 38.7v (10s battery). I’ll soon tear down the whole thing and try and identify what’s wrong.
Most likely I’ll end up buying a replacement esc to get it running. Since the dual esc is so generic there is an identical unit on DIYeboard (I know that they’re a total scam scrap of mouldy ham sham)

Does anybody know where I can get this esc from a more reputable seller? Or if there are any similar budget esc’s to get this running? I’ve looked at Meepo’s website and they seem to have a similar offering.
