HI, I bought an unused stock blade 400 a couple of weeks back and the first time I powered it up the esc burned out - apparently this is a common problem so I bought a 25a hobbyking SS esc to replace it...
Managed to get of the ground this time but when I tried to program it I had to stall the blades (by grabbing them because it decided to spin up on the kitchen table). You guessed it that one went poof too.
So I ordered another and it came yesterday. I've used about three or four batteries just getting to grips with the helicopter and this morning after about 4 minutes very light use I disconnected the battery to the esc to move the heli and when I reconnected it I got another poof and that esc is toast too!
I have ordered a hobbywing fentium 30A esc as a replacement for £15 pounds...
I checked the tale belt isn't too tight and have been very careful not to mishandle the helicopter but I am a complete noob on my first ever heli and am getting very frustrated.
Any advice or tips as to why I'm on my fourth esc would be greatly appreciated.
