Murphy Strikes Back


My first build. Got everything wired up, plugged in a smoke stopper and then the battery…

All powered up, nothing went poof.

Plugged in straight to the battery, rear motors smoked. Unplugged, found the bolts I used were too long and arced the coils, switched them out and plugged in again…


Well, that was dramatic. Good reflexes on getting it unplugged!
Bummer about the board though :frowning:


Yea, I was ready for something to go wrong at that point, just not in such a grand fashion since it didn’t happen on previous plugins.
