hey people, i recently switched the polarity on my lipo by accident while plugged into the esc & now I'm facing some problems.. (obviously)
after the esc smoked up a little bit, i quickly disconnected the battery, waited for it to cool down & plugged it all back in properly to see if it was ok.
this is what has been happening since..
* while the sensor cable is plugged in, motor doesn't accelerate. tried turning it a bit with my fingers & motor started operating in reverse.
* removed sensor cable. motor accelerates normally in the proper direction. give it a rest & then you need to use your fingers to turn it just to get it started up again.
I don't have another motor to test & see if the esc is still ok or not but the motor i have hand turns quite freely so i don't see how that could be the issue.
is anyone able to shed some light on this & let me know if you have experienced the same problem if not something similar? many thanks!
