Help, I sold this servo to a friend of a friend, servo was sold new, apparently the damage happened within a few minutes or use, what would of caused the damage pictured?

Servo was rated at 16kg's @ 6V, was it overloaded? power reversed?, just a crap servo?

It was powered by a 6v batt pack, no BEC used thru the receiver

Any ideas appreciated

That's call the amp self destructing. The cause could be myriad all the way up to and including over voltage, flaky chip, bad motor that shorted out, any number of reasons. Bin it and get a new one.

Pretty sure as already mentioned that is the amp that fried. It's a $12 servo. I'd be more interested in whether others are having good performance from this $12 servo as opposed to trying to figure out electronically what happened to this particular one. You might need to ramp up your budget a little.
