Here we have the destruction of a 12a KISS ESC.
The last flight done with this quad was my last video the FPV racing in Cornwall, the quad did so well that day as my backup quad and was landed at the end of the day in full working order.
This day, I connected the Lipo to the quad, made sure the FC had initialised, checked with my spotter all was clear to take off, armed the quad and then started a slow throttle up to bring me to hover. On the throttle up I got a bright flash of white light in the goggles, I take them off straight away to be met by a smoking Spanky 6 billowing a purple tinted smoke. Best course of action was to disconnect the Lipo ASAP and check for flames.
I emailed Flydrino (seller of KISS ESCs) in the evening and within 10 days I had the replacement ready to go back on the quad.
