Be mindful
« on: April 18, 2014, 00:07:16 AM »
Hi All,

Had a bad experience there recently. Managed to blow a receiver with a faulty ESC, the 'red brick' model of ESC, from turnigy, are cheap but there can be a sting in the tail. There seems to be a fault with these units, (reported online by other users). The BEC goes faulty, with either zero volts out to the receiver or in my case the full voltage of the battery.

In my case, 14.8v blew the receiver with a little puff of smoke and the telling smell of toast  :x

Lesson learned, check the voltage output of the BEC connector with a multimeter before connecting to the receiver or indeed, don't buy cheap.......
