Hi everyone, I’m hoping you guys can help me find out why my motor is fried and smoking after a few test rides…
Here is my video to demonstrate my issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13hamBiqeLQ
Test riding I used 1 3S 11.1v 5000mah LiPo, and two different types of ESC, one initially 45A, then an 80A. All was good, but then after a while something would cut out and then I’d intermittently get power to the motor, at this point the motor and ESC were quite hot. I thought the issue was the ESC and not enough AMPS, so I got a 120A ESC, added another battery in serial and now, on the bench, my motor fried! Like, smoking fried!
Why did this happen? Any help is very much appreciated
