I am currently in the process of building my first electric skateboard. I have attached an image of the components I am using. Last month after a few tests, I had an incident where my ESC smoked up. I have no clue why it smoked up? I used the correct settings, my batteries are compatible. I wish I knew why (it is killing me)!!! Hopefully the problem lies with the ESC, i.e. it was faulty.
Now I am also concerned that the motor could have caused the ESC to smoke, or maybe even worse, the possibility that the motor has now become damaged from the incident.
How can I tell if the motor is damaged or faulty as if I use a new ESC it would be terrible to have the same thing happen again.
Is there anyway I can repair my damaged ESC looking at the pictures attached?
How can I prevent the same thing from happening again in the future?
Thank so so much for your help,
