I got burned my ESC twice, this makes me think this is not a coincidence, but I'm doing something wrong. Would be glad if someone would be able to point it out.
I have a simple drone, with the following specs:
- FC - F3 Deluxe 10DOF
- ESC - Eachine Wizard X220
- Motors - Racerstar 2205 2300KV
- Battery - 3S
Originally I used FS-iA6B receiver and everything was good. Util I saw positive feedback about FS X6B recevier. I swithed to X6B but wrongly connected the wires, and after I attached the battery my back right ESC smoked.
I use PPM to communicate among receiver and FC, so there are 3 wires: plus, ground and data. There were no suitable cables to connect X6B to FC that came with them, so I soldered wires and made an error. The error was that I swapped the plus and ground wires. Still, this is pretty strange, even if receiver is connected wrongly and tells nuts to FC, this shouldn't get ESC to go crazy and burn itself.
I bought a new ESC of same model, fixed the wiring issue and went to flight. The first battery was perfect. But when I connected the second one - same back right ESC (this time a brand new one) smoked again and burned.
I'm interested to know if someone had similar experience of same ESC being burned twice, and what should be done to fix this. Is this some sort of incompatibility of the parts I'm using?
I'd like to avoid switching back to FS-iA6B, since X6B mounts much nicer in stack above FC and PDB.
Thanks in advance.
