    Just smoked my savox.SB2292SG

    Ran CC BEC at 8.1v(tested)esc bypass thinking I screwed something up ran truck about an hour and lost steering. Smoke from under servo.
    I know it's not waterproof only ran in grass and concrete.
    Do you guys think I wired it wrong?(would it just not work?)

    So I think that pinch is the culprit. I plugged in the original servo and it's working.

    Can try resolder on end leads. And see how it does. Wires may of been cut. Can take servo apart and test connectivity with dmm. From servo pcb to rx ends. And fix accordingly.

    Did you see actual smoke from servo? I have..

    I think it's time to get a new servo or do some testing on old one. If recent servo may have warranty, and reach out to manufacture.

    Oh yeah it was smokey. I doubt it's covered under warranty for a pinched wire. Maybe?
