Default $50 up in smoke

So I just charged up a brand new thunder power 1350mah 3s lipo and ran it for the first time when, much to my dismay, poof! a nice little puff of smoke and one dead crawler. I hooked up another battery to make sure my rig made the trip, but my shiny new battery definately didn't. what a hunk of crap!

That really sucks Like Eron said return it to the manufacturer or where ever you bought it and see if they will replace it for you. Good Luck

It's probably your FXR that caused the battery to go out. The same thing happened to me. Same TP battery too. TP should warranty it or offer you a replacement for 50% of the cost of a new one. Give them a call, they'll take care of you.

Did tekkin hook you up with a fresh fxr since it caused the problem?
