I was setting up my first scratch built and for safety I took off one of the power connections to the motor. So I wanted to see if the motor would turn .Well that started the ESC to smoke.I shut it off fast. After it cooled I connected the third wire,tried it and the motor just kinda sputtered a bit and started to smoke too.I checked with a volt meter to see how much power was coming out of the ESC and it said 11 volts. Does anyone know if I burned out the motor or the ESC ? CRAP... I wanted to get it going........Thanks for any help.
