W.A.F.F.L.E.S. are in need of as much help as we can get. We’re competing week one and today at 5406’s practice field and today our Limelight 2 it got a little smoky and caught on fire. Before you ask - yes, we have contacted Limelight directly but haven’t heard back.
We saw a small wisp of smoke and then we smelled ozone right after we plugged a battery into our robot and turned on the breaker during practice. It turned out it was from the limelight, we opened it up and found damage on the camera board between the PI and the camera board.
See below for some pictures of inside.
Would anyone know why this would happen? We’ve got a spare that a team is going to loan us but if we’re doing something wrong we don’t want to put another one on. Used this model all year last year without an issue.
