Was wondering if anyone ever had their fan just temporarily stop working on the ESC.

Thanks,
Josh

Yep...they suck alot of dust in. I had to clean out both if mine after one run. One is ok now but the other is still buzzing.
Used air compressor and some electronic spray cleaner.... Still had to give it a flick with my finger to get it going again too.
Have since put some fly wire ontop of the fan cover to keep the dust etc... Out.

Ah, good to know. I blew the grass out and it fired right up again. Motor was definitely a bit warm. Good thing I noticed it in time. Mesh is a great idea.

Hi, what do you mean by "bearer"? Also, can you show a picture of the ESC with mesh? Thanks.

Under the rotating part is a axle. If you unmount the van, you will see what I mean.
In that position mostly cheap bearer from bronze. (not ball bearings) Such kind of bearing which you´ll find in Tamyja models before you change them to ball bearings.
-> mash!
Just 4 washers and a bit plastic mesh.

I use this mash also inside of the battery box. It prevents that small stones where kept in the box and will damage the hull of the soft packs.
I already putted one additional layer clear heat shrink over the LiPo packs. So I can read what is on the sticker and the sticker stays on the LiPo when them is getting wet. This pic is from an Nero Big Rock but I think that the other ESC´s are not so big different.
In the normal Nero is a little other ESC, but the "mesh solution" is working also. Just an other way to fix them.
