Are you turning it on with the switch or just by connecting power to it?

it is connected to the battery, and i use the power switch

If you

  • disconnect power
  • unplug the switch
  • connect these together labeled “MOM”

  • then reconnect power

then what happens?

Is the delay ten seconds long, or not ten seconds long?

it is about 10 seconds, so you want me to short MOM?

it takes 18 seconds turn itself off when whorting MOM

What’s the battery voltage ?

it was plugged into a 13s battery for 5 sec, but i looked up the voltage that the unity can handle and it says 60v sooo, yeah

technically u can, but little voltage spike is gonna pop it

If you didn’t run any motors that might be fine, but I would not run or detect any motors on that battery and I wouldn’t recommend using it at all on a Unity. You should get a Spintend Ubox for that.

i did not run it just powered it for a few seconds before i realised my mistake
