I have a VS1 running a proboat outboard with a 1900kv motor, I have bought a new nanotech 5000, 65-130 5S and was using a turnigy 180amp ESC.
I say was because today was my first outing with the new 5S. I ran a couple of slow passes and then did two full throttle burst of about 5-8 seconds max.
On the second pass the boat just died at full speed, nose dived into the water and came up upside down, no big deal right? except now it is upside down and a **** load of smoke is coming out of it.
So I did what any dedicated person would do, stripped off to my jocks and in I went to save her.
The speed control was completely ****ed, I mean melted beyond belief, it had completely melted and nearly caught on fire.
I had good water flow and run a seperate line for the ESC, so my guess is this ESC just isn't good enough?
Any advice would be great.
If you run a VS1, what is your setup?
