Maximum Odrive Current


I am currently replicating William Osman’s remote control shopping cart for a school project. I encountered an issue with the odrive when I connected both hover board motors and the rc receiver, (I connected everything without the odrive plugged in). When I plugged the red battery wire into the odrive (after the black wire was plugged in) the port where the red wire goes into sparked and was completely scorched. The odrive stopped working after that. I believe too much current was pulled into the odrive, does anyone experienced something like this?

This is the info of the batteries I am using. I have 4 of them hooked up in a series.

Cells Number: 3

Voltage: 11.1V

Minimum Capacity: 2200mAh

Discharge: 50C

Are you sure you didn’t plug it in backwards?
