Motor Controller Help

Does anyone have any good recommendations on Victors. Vex Pro, Spark, etc. We’ve been having trouble with our old ones lately and have been due for an upgrade. Would appreciate the help :slight_smile: we went through like 5 because they kept smoking this past fall classic.

Thank you,

If you have five motor controllers that are all smoking, that makes me think it may be a wiring fault rather than something wrong with the controllers themselves. Could you provide any more information about the situation in which they started smoking or perhaps a picture of your current electronics setup?

Ah never mind. We got some help from a Discord group. The victors we have are just old and overused.

Thanks anyways

Spark Max is awesome for NEOs you can actually plug the computer into them and program them, VEX pros are really nice as well, really all I can say about that, spark max you can use for regular brushes motors just so long as you follow the diagram and not connect the brushed motor wire it has additionally
