Big oops for me.
I loaded the new firmware a few days ago and then went for a run this morning, leaving all settings at default and 37.5 insert (as before)
I was thinking "wow, this is really hauling ass.....
Motor was sounding awful after 5-6 (quite fast!!) laps. So brought into the pits.
I was thinking, crap, default must have torque timing or some level of boost.
Was trying to listen for some noise, with a mild rev on the bench and the thing locked up. Smoked. Dead. Crap. The whole stator is destroyed. The magnet on the stator was in many pieces all wedged inside the can. Not pretty.
I have just realised I forgot to reset to default and re-do the TX settings.
Doh! That must have been it.
So now to order a new motor for the final 2 rounds of the season. I'm tossing up between another x20 and a D4 maxzilla.
Then explaining to my wife about how annoyed with myself I am we have the best conversation about RC ever
