I had one puff instantly on hookup, about a month ago, in my Calypso. Had already made 2 flights with no bumps or bruises, took a break, went to hook up & magic smoke appeared!
Noted - instead of 'handshake' beeps, the motor started jerking around slowly & making an actual gagging/hacking sound coinciding with the jerks. Luckily I still had the XT60's in hand so yanked 'em apart before more serious damage could occur, but just those couple seconds destroyed a 2200 NanoTech with only 3 charges on it. Thinking the LiPo wiring had shorted or something, I put in another & felt it immediately starting to swell, so yanked it out. Turns out it was a defective ESC.
FWIW.
