Default RE: Tekin Titan ESC - No Reverse

Hurray!
Nick Marson and I replaced the 2 MOSFETs and this fixed the problem. He was able to see little metallic beads on a MOSFET indicating a burn out (see previous pictures). We replaced the 2 MOSFETs that were in that set. There were 2 sets of 2 and 2 sets of 4 MOSFETs. It was fairly straight forward. Remove the old solder with a solder sucker and iron, pull the MOSFETs and solder in new ones. Of course it requires some skill with a soldering iron and you must make sure that the MOSFETs are all nice and flush so that the case will fit afterwards.

The little white blob remains. Nick guesses that it's a thermal overload sensor.
