We need some super smart guys to build diy esc's so we can build them at home. Then we smoke 'em, we can swap out burnt components and keep going. Kinda like our Scisky FETS!
We can do that with commercial ones too, so long as you can diagnose and identify the failed components. I sorted out a Babyhawk esc with a missing diode on the motor out circuit by stealing one from a dead frsky xm+ rx.
I do like the Speedix 20A escs, run d-shot600 fine and are pretty small and light.
Here's a pic with weights, including the wires they come with, compared to a Bullet 6A.
So if we can identify the smoked components, it is just a matter of replacing, not buying new?
Digi-Key or the like I presume.
Sounds easy enough
I'll make sure to hold on to my scraps then!
In your experience @Chaotix
Are there the "usual suspects"?
I'd think with something running high currents like escs, each would need assessed on its failure and whether is worth replacing a number of components versus the assumed reliability of a whole new one. Mosfets would be high on the list along with big caps. Guess work here
