Default Battery connect wrong - burnt circuits

Hi guys,

Can't believe I did this, but yes I connected the battery wrong. I immediately unplugged it, but the smoke told me the damage was done.

So my question is, how much damage? Is it possible just the speed controller is cactus? Or should I just bite the bullet and order another CB100?

Cheers

Frank

Where did the smoke come from? You may just have to replace the esc

Default I would suggest the ESC

From past experience (yes fat fingers here as well) i suggest that you have only burnt out the ESC
That is certainly where I would start, however another CB100 would provide you with plenty of spares, for a fraction of the cost of buying them separately

Take my advice, spares = extra flying time, rather than waiting for them to arrive (most frustrating)

Cheers

Hi rockers,

You are correct. I have just replaced the ESC and now have a working heli. So fortunately only the ESC got cooked.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Cheers
