So I’m testing this old motor / electric system someone else made with my own new battery. It worked GREAT the first time I plugged it all in, and used the futaba transmitter to run the motor and servo. I then unplugged the batter to turn it off. I wanted to swap the servo for a different one, and went to power it back on. I plug the battery in and hear a small ‘pop’ when it plugs. Slightly concerned, it took me a second try still with a pop to power up my sabertooth driver. The motor driver seemed to work fine after the initial battery connection was made. HOWEVER, upon connecting driver to the receiver, the motor spun up to %100 or so and I immediately unplugged the battery. This was with NO INPUT from my transmitter. I then thought to unplug the receiver, and still pops! anyone have a guess?
Sabertooth 2x25 v2 creates ‘pop’ sound every time I connect the battery, even with no receiver. When the receiver is plugged in, the motor starts running %100. 6S Lipo is brand new so I don’t want to ruin anything. Anyone know the issue?!?!
Thanks so much, in advance.
