The last time I had a battery with loose Sermos connectors, I reached in the fuse to connect to the ESC and almost plugged them in reverse polarity. I let go the wrong wire, reached for the other one and dang it, didn't the wire I just let go pop into my hands again? Yep, you guessed it. Poof goes a CC Phoenix45 when I throttled up for a test. Ouch!
Three things from that incident. 1) Polarize the Sermos or get another connector like the Regular Deans. 2) CC ESC smoke leaves a lingering smell.... Febreeze your shop! 3) CC has great customer service... they replaced it for free, even after I told them how I smoked it.
- oh, one more thing. With a temp shorted LiPo pack.... keep a very close eye on it for a while. Always store it in a safe spot until you feel comfy that it isn't going to cause problems. Play it safe until you have discharged/charged it for a few cycles.
Oh great are the days when my takeoffs equal my landings!!!
