hi. I bought a dragon dolphin 2nd hand recently and I got the battery hooked up then the transmitter and reciever. When I turned it all on the rudder kept turned right and within 2 mins it made a little click noise and all the electric went dead and I am not able to turn it on at all now. any ideas. Thanks.

More detail needed; but sounds like esc is dead.

Try unplugging the esc and connecting a 4.8v battery to the receiver. If the servos work the esc is toasted.

Ok thanks. Do you have any ideas why the esc would do this?

Could be many reasons and it might not even be the esc. Have tried replacing each component with a known working one, if you have, until the problem goes away?

I think the bloke who said it was the esc is right. I bought a 11.1v lipo and I think I needed a higher esc and its burnt it out. Thanks all for your help very much
