SMOKED literally like a old freight train!!!! terrible and I know for a fact that it had worked with the other 20C battery so!? I have a brand new Mystery 60A ESC that I am installing tonight but I will not run that 30-40C Turnigy Battery!
A battery can't smoke an esc if the set up is correct. Did you have a esc that is rated for 3S and 4S batteries? Maybe you went from a 3S to a 4S or the ESC was defective.
