I have an ICE2 HV120 that I bought used and used it for about 3 flights with a 35c 3amps lipo with stock motor (530K) Align 700e. I recently got 5Amps 65c Turnigy from hobbyking. When trying to connect the batt with the ESC, the positive connectors from the batt adapter and the ESC fried /melted at contact (see attached pic). Can anyone explain to me what may have happened? I am not an expect on the electric, even though I understand the concept. I will appreciate any feedback.

Did the positive and negitive wires get swapped somehow
Sounds like a dead short.

No, but I will double check. The only think I did different is that my receiver was off. Do you think this may contribute to that?

I can't imagine a RX being off causing that. I've connected my ESC with the RX off several times, and it just doesn't arm. It sure sounds like that your connectors got reversed when you connected the series connector.

The receiver off wont cause that to happen, it wont arm the esc with out signal from the tx. Check to see somehow the conection got crossed, which will cause an immediate and disastrous malfunction of the conectors and possably ignite the battery on fire ( and your heli and your house) and destroy the esc. If this is what happened you got real lucky thats all you lost.

Artists and Rcflyerheli,

I appreciate all your inputs, you both made me think deep. Afetr both your comments, I drove home during my lunch break just to make sure, because it did not make sense at all. Well, you are both right. I screwed up big time, I will post some pictures later on, just can not do it with my smartphone, I haven't figure out. Thank you so much, indeed I was lucky, God was on my side. Just imagine 65c 5A 12S fully charged 50V?????? I just thank God, I will never solder when I am tired. After soldering countless of batterits and connectors, I just didn't think I was the problem. Thank you, guys for forcing me to look at the mirror.

You are more than welcome. Sometimes, we all have to look in that mirror. This hobby is a lot of fun, but it is definitely one that commands respect.

I know I have made some mistakes, as well. Most have turned out to be noncritical, but one ended up with damage to my heli, but no injuries.

We all just have to pay attention. I am glad you were able to sort things out, and hopefully no other damage was done.

I was lucky that the only damage was the connectors, which will be easily replace.

DFC 700
I am upgrading my 700 to FL DFC head. The question I have is that, can I use 710 blade on FDC head? The reason I am asking, it seems like every DFC 700 I see, most are using 690 or 700mm not 710, that's why I am wondering if is there an issue with using 710mm blades.

I would recommend moving your last post to its own thread. You will get more on subject answers that way.

For me, I haven ever tried anything longer than 696s, and didn't have any issues.

Thank you I will move it, I was using my smartphone I quest I wasn't that smart. I only ask because I don't want to get rid of the blades I already have. Thank you though
