Failed CC HV85

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was flying my Raptor 50 Titan (converted to 10S TPPacks system) today and the CC HV85 ESC let out a puff of smoke and quit working... luckily I was hovering and just auto'd down.. no damage except for a $200ESC no working !

Upon inspection, there is a little, black, square component on the board that has delaminated (see picture).

Does anyone know the process to get warrantee replacement? (I bought it at Zebra Hobbies at Christmas 2006, so it's only 2 months old)

Any help would be appreciated!

I had a pair of CC's burn up while testing the beta software last summer (which was strictly software related). They sent me new CC's with a return shipping label.

Contact Castle via email at : , attention to Bernie Wolfard.

They have the best CS in the world.

Sorry to hear, but hey.. could've been worse... could've been inverted

Wow... thanks for the advice. I called Castle Creations and also sent them the picture.

Without question, they put a new ESC in the mail the same day... In fact they didn't even care to see a receipt or wait for me to send them the defective ESC... now that's customer service at it's best.

As a result, I will only buy Castle Creations products from now on!

Again... thanks for the advice
