I just fried my epic binary2 stock... i think
i thought i was having problems with my esc (a fairly old GM v3r) where i couldnt get power to the motor. i could control the servo, so i was a little baffled as all my connections were fine. so i left the esc on and started fiddling with connections, trying my radio from time to time. I started to hear a little sizzle and promptly disconnected my batteries and shut off the esc. to my dismay a nice smoke trail was coming out of the motor. It had siezed and it was all i could do to break it free.
i had never ran the motor before trying to test it just now. guess im buying new elecs. So is my motor screwed? i took it apart and it looks fine, just some blackness on that green part of the come (motor newb here). Or is it my esc? or both?
it would suck to have to buy a new motor & esc this close to a club event, considering how rare races are around here
