Okay, so I’ve put together this build last year and I never had any issues with the receiver or anything else really. I am using a skateboard deck, 190 kv enertion r-spec motor, hobbywing 150A ESC, HK-GT2B receiver, 6s lipo, enertion trucks, barefoot 83mm wheels.
My problem is that 2 days ago I went to plug in the lipo to the ESC and everything was fine (it did spark as usual) then when I went to turn it on it made a crackle sound so I opened the case back up and the receiver was smoking. Every time I pressed the trigger on the remote the receiver would continue to emit smoke and the motor would not spin or anything. So I quickly turned everything off and disconnected everything. I checked all the wires to see if I caused a short circuit, but no wires seem to be cut or exposed to each other.
Does anyone know what could be the cause/problem here? i was thinking maybe because i dident invest in a real switch instead of just using the ESC’s switch.
