As reported to me by Alex, the modification we came up with for the tinyESC V2's has fixed the problem a few people were having.

The short version is that the h-bridge chip was being zapped by voltage spikes. Adding a resistor to two input lines stops the spikes. So tinyESC's are now once again the most reliable motor controller you can get for the insect weight classes. Smile

Thanks to everyone who responded with bot info!

I actually took 3rd at the ohio robotics event this weekend and my girlfriend drove her robot to 5th place. Both robots were using the updated tiny esc's and spark motors and everything went perfectly!

Ta-daaaaa! Very Happy

Evan - I'm much happier to provide a product that everyone wants to buy once than a product that some unlucky people would have to buy over and over.
