Default Hot ESC when turned on, no driving.

Hi, Did it is normal that the ESC warms me when I did not give gas and brake only is enabled, along with the motor. I bought a new controller Muchmore Fleta pro and I was surprised how the motor is connected to a lrp x11 4.5t, maybe it's because the engine is terribly hard rotor 14mm. Set up is standard because i don't have SHR card

Check A,B,C, cable connections are correct
Also make sure motor tabs are not touching anything

Possible new esc has failed ?

i dont really understand

if the ESC is getting really hot without you doing anything then you have probably got the A B C wrong

if its getting hot after you make the car go forward for a bit then your motor is drawing too much current

i have a muchmore fleta pro also but never experienced these issues

A, B, C, is well connected, the temperature is not high, around 30 degrees Celsius, can the 4.5t engine is this normal? Earlier I used Tekin Rs and 17.5t there was refreshment to the temperature rise when the ESC did not do anything.

Do you have another motor you could wire up and see if you observe the same behavior? I doubt the motor is the source of the problem, especially if it's not running.

Confirm the bolts that hold the motor are not too long. I did this on a micro car years ago and the screws were touching the stator. the dead short condition heated up the speedo then it blew up.

I hadn't thought of this point, but it is a place to start.

What ESC are you using? You stated a Tekins RS is it being used , or did you change it.

Original post is above - I believe the OP is using a Fleta Pro as an ESC...
Kinda interested in the solution to this issue, as I've never seen this occur...

Got you. I was mistyping MuchMore Fleta. Like all ESC, they have to be connected correctly. Battery to motor wiring. The next thing just as important. The Calibration to TX to RX to ESC to Motor. Especially to the motor. Brushless motor the tee. Neutral, fullthrottle to braking. Crossing over from Tekins to MuchMore completely different. He should recheck and redo his calibration, than see what happens. Its probably nothing. He must check his ESC if it uses LED or Chimes, they have to hear or see when calibrating. Good luck.

I would triple check wiring. I have seen, excess solder touching the tab next to each other, on the speedo or motor. A small single strand of wire can do the same thing.

Currently I Muchmore fleta pro and this controller are affected. Soldering is ok, screws are short. Temperature is not of grows, maintained at 30 degrees Celsius. Tomorrow I will be tested on the national level.
