Help!

Fried my Hoverfly pro!


Hi,

Due to my esc got hot using the internal bec for the hoverflyboard i connected power from my osd to the esc input. I was sure the output from osd was 5v, but it was lipo voltage 14,2v!
So when i connected the battery it smoked!!
It also fried my reciever!

Anyway, i connected the board to another reciever and updated the firmware again. The update process works fine and the led is green.
The problem is that only two of the esc output works.
(I tried the esc/motor direct on the reciever and they all work)

Is there anyway to fix this?
I really like the hoverfly pro, so I hope there is a way to repair it?

Unfortunately the level converter chip on the ESC outputs is most likely damaged.

You would need to replace the 20 pin SMD IC near the ESC port. Not an easy job unless you have an SMD desolder system.

Do you have the Yellow Jacket Protection plan? Because you could send us the board and we would send you a new one.

Yes it looks like the chip is broken.i took a photo of it to see the description, but I cant find it anywhere.
I dont have the yellowjacket, but I will try solder it.
Could you send me a new chip or a link to where I could buy?
