Over the past year, I built a 10s8p battery and custom enclosure for my Evolve Bamboo GT. I’ve been running Racestar 140Kv motors ever since one of my original Evolve motors died, even prior to the upgrade.
Everything’s been running solid until today, when my board came to a halt and smelled like burnt electronics.
I opened up the board and there’s an obvious burn mark where one of the motor’s yellow wires attach to the board. I’m assuming this ESC is toast at this point (?).
1 - Did I do anything, or is there anything I should check that would have caused this? Or is it simply the stress of running a hilly trail? Did the motor just stress too much and it ended up killing the board? I have proper voltage coming from my battery still.
2 - If this thing is toast, I’d rather upgrade than swap out with stock Evolve stuff. Since I have this mega 10s8p battery, what could I buy in order to run 200Kv motors? Can I keep the evolve BMS that is currently in the board and just buy a new ESC, or do I need ESC and a new BMS? I’m assuming new ESC means new remote too, or is there something that works with my R1 Evolve remote?
