Default RE: help my battery started smoking

If it was smoking, I doubt if it is still good. Most likely you have plugged the battery into the speed control with reverse polarity. This would result in a destroyed speed control also. So, first check to see if your ESC is any good. The next is to examine the abttery, if it is puffeed, its pretty much NG. If the battery looks physically good, look to see where the smoke came from. If it's from the wiring, it may be salvagable. If the smoke was from the cells themselves, please dispose of the battery in a safe manner.
