Hello Doug, thank you. I have the Mtronics G2 Hydra 50 system brushless motor and speed controller, Overlander 35c LiPo 11.1v 3900mAh battery and a Tamia TX and RX, all was provided together from Howes Models
I have successfully connected it all together and run it on several occasions for test purposes without a problem.
The battery connects with a Tamia connector which can’t be reversed and the motor has three colours cables, red, yellow, blue as does the speed controller.
I switched in the RX before the TX and the motor ran as it has previously, I quickly switched on the TX and whoosh! Lots of smoke from the speed controller.
I am sure I connected the mayor/speed controller cables correctly however when it all went wrong I very quickly disconnected the battery and the motor leads so didn’t see how they were connected. One of the pins in the Tamia connector to the battery disappeared as well, not sure if it melted or broke off when I pulled it apart.
If I had connected the motor cables incorrectly would that have caused this.
Also, what type of fuse do you suggest? Eg car type
