I had my seaking burn up a few days ago. Normally it shuts off when it gets too hot, I’m not sure why it didn’t this time. Luckily the batteries survived.

Are users that have an active cooling system still getting burned out motor controllers? I’m wondering whether I should purchase a higher quality esc or go with the same one with water cooling.

I think the currents we are drawing water cooling is a much for long term survival. $20 pump and $5 hose, and two waterproof wire glands make all the difference.
