Thanks for the clarity! I wish I could tell you that I had some special touch for lining up the stem so wel.... I don't, it just came together pretty good with some clamps and long arm quick grips.
On another note, I was re-wiring today after the little melt down, and I found the connector between the battery and the ESC was melted together.
What could be the cause of this?
Thanks in advanced for any replies!
