The connector is worn out probably from tinning the male connectors and shoving them in..
I just started to read on people changing the mosfets on the pcb, when and why are people doing this do they just wear out after awhile?? I hope I never have to do this! Those things are tiny
Removing the connector can be a chore if your not good at the micro soldering. I have gone to the dual tail FET using the main FET's, with the signal wire passing through the board, 24 gauge Silver teflon insulated wire leads soldered to the main motor plug (which is now the tail output) with micro bullets. changing booms is easy now
and there are no wires wrapping around the main board (except the motor leads)
Burnt tail FET's are pretty much always from having the tail motor wires short to each other.
I figured out a slick way to turn the C05M into a 2S motor, put the magnet bell from the 3700KV C05M on it, and you get exactly half the KV
I will definitely be playing around with it soon.
C05M 11,500KV has 6 magnets, 3700KV has 12.
