I connected the motors to the ESCs.To recap, the battery connector, motors and ESCs are soldered to the board.I wanted to test motor direction using a spare receiver I have. When I connect the battery to the battery plug thats soldered to the board, I hear an audible crackle or pop that sounds like a spark or something is arching off. I did it…See More
