I was freewheeling along a path and had not use throttle for about 30 seconds when I heard what sounded like venting gas coming from the controller box. Flames were exiting the vent holes and I went into a panic, disconnected the battery and tried to put the fire out. Pictures explain with happened which still puzzles me as I was not using throttle and all other times the controller was only warm. All I can think of is that I have not soldered the caps on correctly and they have shorted out. One thing I noticed too was one of the 6 cell back was dead and could not read a voltage with the LV checker so not sure if one cell is dead or what. The other 6 cells were OK.
I have sent this controller to Castle Creations before for non warranty work will they repair this again or do you only get one chance?
I really think this RC stuff is a bit much for me and are seriously thinking of going to a sensor motor.

I would say that it is well documented if you have some working knowledge of adding sensors and wiring them.
Not so well documented if you are a beginner.
