    Hey guys I just got a hpi flux 2 sprint from a guy it has a hobby wing 35a esc and the Hpi 5900kv motor in it he ran a 2 s lipo in it when he showed it to me I get it home and plug in a 2s lipo and it runs for like 10 seconds and then a lot of cogging and then a little smoke from the esc ran over and unplugged it tried a NiMH and same thing!!!!!! wtf? Any help would be awesome I'm really concerned because like I said I watched it run for like five minutes on another 2s before I traded now I can't play with it :banghead:

    ummmm............:shy:
    smoke from the ESC is NEVER a good sign sorry........
    hate to say it, but theres a good chance the ESC is cooked...

    does the esc light up, make any noises, do anything????



    EDIT: 35A esc and 5900kv motor.... hummm, i'll look into it, but that motor sounds too big you that esc..... could be wrong tho, i'll look it up......

    i'm pretty sure(still, could be wrong), but i think that, that motor is too big for the esc........
    manual for the 35a esc, says down to a 9t brushless, about roughly a 3650kv motor

    It lights up and the fan turns on with all the batteries but it cogs and don't do anything but get hot and then I give it throttle that's when it starts to smoke

    yeah, thats an ago old question. cause each company makes them differently, the kv and turns dont quite match up, so makes it really hard.

    5900kv is like up there in the 5.5t, 4t turn sort of area, as far at i can work out.....

    Oh never mind I found out that they don't have a motor limit so looks like I'm good on that cuz I got one of those so in theory the 3500 vileneon motor would be fine for the hobby wing maybe just swap escs
