    hi just finished putting new motors, torpedo 800's in my tug had it running off one 12 volt batt with two 20amp viper speed controllers removed one esc red wire so each prop was individually controlled as no rudder, tank turn all was well in test so today tidyed the wires and fixed them in place and tested it again one of my esc kept blowing fuses and smelt of burning this is the one that powers the receiver took it out of the boat tested it on a battery and puff of smoke phoned howes were i bought them they said send it back and we will look at it never had any issues with vipers so hoping its just a dodgy esc will let you know how i get on and but some picks of my boats up cheers Mark

    "so today tidyed the wires and fixed them in place and tested it again one of my esc kept blowing fuses"
    Hmm! Are you absolutely sure you 'tidied' the way the wiring was before?
    As a former test engineer (Dpt Head) for a mobile radio manufacturer that sounds highly suspicious to me.
    Check, double check and triple check before applying power is the maxim!
    On the other hand we had something very similar a few weeks ago also with mTroniks ESCs!
    I'm beginning to wonder about mineπŸ€”
    Very nice boatπŸ‘ Looks heavy though!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Thanks mate the wires were tidy until the ESC puffed smoke just pulled everything out as I said was working fine so thought final fix powered up and fuse blew new fuse and same again tryed it one more time and smoke will be fitting A new ESC and hopefully all good yes she is heavy but transport her in bits not too bad cheers mark

    Nice tug Mark, at 47" she must weigh heavy, what batteries do you use 6 or 12 volt?
