Re: How to bypass internal controller on brushless motors?

forget repairing the original controller. its fully potted, making it impossible to work on. what you need to do is get that controller out of there. there are three pairs of large wires(phase wires) and a five wire ribbon(halls wires) you need to get to them without damaging them so you can solder ...

Re: motor cutting out and using too much juice

So I'm understanding that I have a bad phase wire connection that is caused by a battery not being to keep up with discharge rate. Is there a chance it is just a bad phase wire connection, and if i flip flop some wires, it might ...

Re: Kelly controller error code?

if the controller sees voltage on the throttle signal wire at power up it will give an error code. its a safety thing. if your throttle is faulty or has a weak spring in it and its not completely returning to 0v. the kelly wont turn on.
