I have managed to blow up a couple of SimonK cheap 30a ESCs. Even though they are cheap, the cost mounts after a few blow-ups.
I intend to install a 30 amp fuse in the line to protect the next one I try to fry; but in the interim I was wondering if anyone could tell me what size resistor I could use to limit the current passing through.
I am using a 3S 1800mAh battery, which (supposedly) is going to give me 11.1 volts. The motors are the cheap A2212 motors from eBay running at 1000Kv and also a set of 1400Kv. It was while testing the 1400Kv motors that the ESCs blew. I am using them with a 10"x4.5" propeller.
Due to the violence of the blow-ups, I am going to assume that I am trying to draw far too much power from the battery for the ESC to handle.
