Hi, My friends went on my board, 2 of them at once, and as they accelerated to quickly, it shut down. I also know this is a preventative measure so as not to fry all the electronics but this is different. Now if I was there I would have said not to do it so no point telling me it is my fault because i have read a lot on the forum and are aware of evolve’s ‘‘weird’’ quality.
The board will not turn on, or at least the blue light on the power button does not flash. I have taken the board apart and it smells like something is frying on the ESC. I don’t think it is the BMS because when I try and charge it, the red light comes on the charger signifying it is charging. the ESC also heats up (like untouchable hot) immediately when I turn the board on in one particular spot below the evolve logo on the ESC. it seems like it comes from a little black square below. pics below. Also, when I took the cover off, the yellow lead from motor 1 was unsoldered. just above it, is where the heat is coming from. I have now re-soldered it back. Any help is appreciated and if someone now the price for evolve to repair or is selling an Evolve ESC then please DM me.
Kind regards Louis
