Blown Up
While soldering my EC5's yesterday I got the stuff on the brass connector, tried scraping it off w a scalpel-- BOOM! What followed was a loud pop and a flash of light from the thing. Is my lipo fubar? What happened? The + and - never came into contact. Or should I consider just taking up needlepoint for a hobby?

Maybe golf

Something had to touch causing the short.

Wires
The black wire looked okay to me; the end of the fitting on the red lead is gone...

I think u guys r right- the black lead has residue that is likely from burn. Miguel is looking at it as I write this. Hopefully the lipo isn't shot!Dave

For the end of the connector to be missing a chuck of metal. You shorted and an arc was made to cause that flash that melted the tip off.

KeeP that battery outside abit just incase it will go poof. Some times It takes it's time to go.

Boom
Turned out black touched red... with Miguel's help, EC5's are on and ESC is wired to BEC. The lipo is reading 6S on the Hyperion EOS Sentry.

Gene, Nycatt, David thanks for your thoughts and advice! Not moving to needle point just yet...

Many thanks, Miguel for the soldering lesson!

When soldering the EC5 connector... solder on one bullet and slip it into the EC5 housing, then solder on the other bullet and slip it on. THis will prevent the two wires from shorting it other out.

needlepoint is just not as exciting Dave, glad you still with us lol

I'm relief to know that the battery is reading as a 6s. Keep a close eye on it for the first or second charge on that one battery at least for a few minutes to make sure it does not puff or anything out of the ordinary. Glad I was able to help out...I can't wait to see the scale body on this heli once it's ready.
