As soon as I plugged in the unit the cc bec sparked and smoked. Unplug immediately. Now one elevator servo not working, retracts not working gear door not working. Told my sad story to the fellows at our flying field and one said he was told that CC BEC will not work with some of these Chinese servos. I am still planning to get this plane flying.

Very similar to my situation after blowing the stock ESC BEC. I guess this warrants another look through at all the stock wiring. I took it for granted that rat nest was good to go from the factory.
