I have burnt / smoked two NEW HW Platinum HV 130 AMP ESC. I'm running a JP Hobby 90 mm 8s EDF with two 4 cell packs at 6000 mah 100C each. Combined making up the 8s pack. The HobbyWing Tech service is absolutely horrible. I have asked numerous times in email to speak directly with a tech. They want pictures and get back to you? Their sales department is exceptional, place online order three days later product arrives. I also run other HW products and have worked flawsely and never a need to speak with a tech.

I'm learning from trial and error and it's cost me dearly. $600.00 plus not including the new ESC I purchased today from a different manufacture. I've have search several forums trying to understand what I'm doing wrong.

When spooling up, approximately 3/4 throttle, 30 amps, 1000-1100 watts, a loud screech from motor then it stops. ESC goes in over current or my case smokes. EDF motor ohms out the same on each leg. I've tried reducing the timing. Followed all the calibration processes per HW manual. All the connections appear to be well soldiered. No matter what I try same screech at the same 3/4 throttle, 30 amps and 1000-1100 wattage. Looking for some help or advice as I'm getting nowhere with HW tech service..
