I met the last category yesterday.
My son's Fury BL roller has a high voltage servo. So I added a HV circuit to the car, bypassing both the receiver and ESC.
Bashing and racing creates a lot of stress to the car. One of the electric wires insulation must have been stripped off by a rock or something.
When I attached the battery to the car, it was smoke all over the place!
I quickly pulled out the connectors off the battery (2S, fully charged), but I did not need to since the solder already got so hot that it detached the connectors by itself
- Savöx HV waterproof servo burned
- HV circuit burned
- receiver cable from ESC completely burned
The receiver looked undamaged. I opened the casing to view the circuit board. I have to test that still...
The ESC looks okay, besides the fact I have to install a new receiver connector.
So I new servo has to be ordered, and I am thinking of buying a new ESC.
One thing for sure: no more HV circuit. For me too much risk.
And the hardcase lipo has survived thank god
