johangrimm Posted November 3, 2016 Share Posted November 3, 2016 Hi all! I got a really good price on a smashed up Msuper3 so I'm now wheeling around as a newbie on a heavily duct taped wheel. Everything was working at first. Step one however was to dismantle and examine since I had to now where the cracks went. I then left the controller disconnected from the battery for about a week. When I reconnected power to the controller card both capacitors charged up with a minor flash at the connection. Not good at all! GotWay uses no resistor as protection and after this neither my own Bluetooth-board or the one I borrowed from a friend will show up "in the air". There's a LED blinking red all the time and pressing the button makes no difference. Mind you that the BT-board I tried from my friend also might be damaged since 4 or 5 of his MOSFET's are burned. If course I'll try a brand new SH_BT_Board v1.3 but have anyone else had similar problems? Also, imagine how the assembly line at GotWay must be like? Either they do initial test on all controller cards through a proper power supply that swallows the spike on its own capacitors. Then the capacitors on the controller are already primed and in final station batteries and BT-board can just be connected without any spikes. Or, they have had to think about the order in which they mount the lot and that's it. So, now I'm just awaiting the new BT and I'll get back to you about it. Comments?
