If you don't mind me asking, was it just the ESC that went? Did the motor go too? What ESC was it? What batteries were you running?

Thanks!

Just the esc, I put 2 , 2650mah 6s in Series , on accident , thought I put them in parallel . Nano tech 35c battery. Going with a 120hv esc next. No other damage , just wiped everything down and checked it all out , I'm glad I just put in a 1100mah life to handle all the power duties. I'll be up next week

Sucks to see you had that emergency in flight, but nice work bringing it in safely. Looks like you have a nice place to fly with lots of landing area too!

Thanks, easy fix and back in the air next week.

I fly on an old runway left over from Stapleton airport in Denver , I'm the only one that goes there, hoping others will show up. Talked to the fire dept. and they don't care, nothing to hit and plenty of area to land, love flying with the city and mountains in the background.

Anybody in or around the Denver area please come fly at
56th and havana , hope to see you their.

You ran a 6S setup on 12S and all you smoked was the ESC? Wow! I'm impressed! Seems the ESC would have just not started up at all.
Nice save!

I had put in a 100amp HV hobbywing , it's up to 12s, just couldn't handle 180amps. Says a lot about the arc 2080kv motor I'm using.

Unfortunately those batteries were probably down to about 2 volts per cell there for a time!

I burned up a brand new plane putting a 3S and a 2S together to make 5S but used a parallel adapter by accident!

If I knew the weather was going to be 50's and 60's in January, I would have tried to finish mine up in the near future. Seeing how nice it flies in everyone's vid's make me want to finish it up sooner!

I'd love to fly mine. But I am hitting one road block after another.
I've been trying to get it finished since Sept.

Parts mostly!
I have a oddball 12S setup in it and so I've had to do a lot of waiting for those parts to be built and ESCs to come back in stock etc. (Don't have a house full of stock like Tam!)
Still can't seem to find any 50V 330uf resistors locally. Or 10 gauge wire for that matter.
Just stuff.
It's down to getting the fan balanced and wire for esc extention and caps.
Then it's on!! Hee hee.
