Flipsky? more like Fire & Die

Well, after tonight I am one with those against Flipsky… The pictures below show the aftermath of my vesc shitting it self, catching fire and exploding. Was trying to get remote working after it had stopped moving the motor (control type set to off for some reason), set to current bidirectional, accelerated on controller, vesc went boom. Pretty flames actually, pink and purple among the orange, and the lipos didn’t blow up either :smiley: . rest of pics will be @ google photo link below.

Wow that blows. At least you kept the collateral damage to a minimum. Could have been much worse.

I like to think I scare the electricity too, or maybe it just thinks I’m dumb. I also thought the colored flames were my lipos, then I couldnt have really done anything… accepted jesus right then and there lol.

Oh no, once electrical starts combusting, all you can do is put it somrwhere safe and do not try to throw water on it. It gets very violent.
