Can the helij ive 120 handle a 14s setup or will it destroy the esc?
The reason to why io am asking is because i ordered 7s packs instead of 6s packs and did not realize it and plugged them in. i wondering if the esc is toast or not. i know it sounds stupid but everyone makes mistakes...right lol XD.

- if the jive is toast can i send it back to kontronik for servicing?

It is not rated for 14s. Whether or not it hurt it I don't know... I'd ask kontronik.

Don't know if it hurt the ESC or not. Did the LED flash any code? Easiest way to see if all is good is to plug in one 7s pack and see what it does..

Like Norman said contact Kontronik, however if it is damaged more than likely it's non repairable. Unless they have changed the way they do things, the Jives are "potted" in a resin or sealer of some kind.
pretty much making them unrepairable.

The only way to know for sure is probably to send the Jive back to the Kontronik service center for evaluation. But you could also just plug in a 6s to 12s pack and see it it works.

Well since you have 2 7s packs, I know for a fact it will accept a 7s pack because I used to run one on 7s in a E7.
