    I put the fire out quickly but the sparks/flame came from the port at the left. You can see the sticker pulling up from the burst of heat.

    Almost finished with my savox servo install. Waiting for the hardware to arrive to finish it off.

    I also tried again, unsuccessfully, to solder the TRX connectors onto my Max6. My Weller soldering iron just doesn't seem to be doing the job. I got the flux and silver solder but I just can't seem to get it right. Is there a place I could send my Max6 to and have the connectors properly soldered on? Or would someone here be willing to help me out?

    Where are you? If you happen to be in NH area I'll help out. Where can I find info on that savor install, and everything needed for it? Looks great.

    I followed this tutorial on the servo install: https://youtu.be/hEy_WK2PqPI

    I made some changes to suit my needs. I used layered ABS plastic bonded with acrylic cement to make the top plate instead of aluminum. It was easier for me to work with and is very strong.

    I live in PA so NH is a bit of a haul but thank you.

    The LHS would be an option if I had a LHS to goto.

    That is a purty servo you bought there..... too bad you don't have it on display. I went with the SW0241MG because I got it for $64. Couldn't beat that price for sure.

    Just installed the Traxxas wheelie bar came with the 8s power up package. I like it. It is light weight, I removed the TBone bumper/wheelie bar for now. Finally got a place to put my hand on to carry the xmaxx properly.

    I have the battery mount removed, and 2 straps to hold almost any decent size of battery.

    That is 2x5000mah, 60C, 7s running in parallel, 10000mah in total of 7s power.

    Need something like that for parallel.

    Don't need anything in my setup for series because I can connect two batteries directly with the XT150 plugs.




    In series above.
