Swappabled overheating

Swappable overheating

I was wondering if anyone else is having problems with heat in the swappable power pods... I've ran into several instances recently on the FT3D puffing batteries, ect. I've done a simple fix by adding an "air intake" on the side of the fuse through the pod and that seems to have fixed the problem on this particular model. Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue and/or if there may be a design improvement to suggest to FT. Thanks all

Your battery puffing is more likely due to running it below safe minimum voltage. Is the esc getting hot? Typically, that is what overheats.
its a 1200kv brushless with a 30a ESC and an Eflight 3s 2200mAh 30-40c is one of the batteries that puffed. I have several of these batteries and after I cut the air vent none of them have had that problem. I've been running this same setup on a profile foamy for 3-6 months and never puffed a battery either. When I put these in the power pod that's when the problem started.
