Hey, so I recently ordered 2 flipsky vesc’s from Amazon. Worked perfectly for around an hour until I hit a puddle downtown. The puddle was very small and only splashed the battery enclosure.
After I hit that puddle I had no control over the board as it seemed to have shut off. I checked the connections and noticed one vesc was disconnected. The weird thing was that both vesc’s went out.
I took it home to examine the electronics to see that nothing smelled burnt, looked burnt, or even slightly wet on the inside. The thing is that when the power is turned on, the receiver lights up but the vesc’s don’t.
I tried connecting them to my laptop to read them but it wouldn’t connect. After a couple of minutes of letting them sit with power on, they started getting a little warm. Could it be that the motors got wet and burnt something out in the controllers? I read that someone had a similar issue where the power got disconnected while braking and it totally fried the controller. Did my controllers meet the same fate?
Any help would be appreciated.
