Default Orca RX3 sensor issue

I have an Orca RX3 with what i think is a sensor issue.

I wired it in to the car for the first time this morning, when i throttled the motor didn't move, even with a push of the wheels, its as though it was locked up. After trying this a few times i noticed the esc and battery terminal getting warm.

I refitted my old motor and tried it and it was fine. I rewired the Orca and it worked. I drove it around in the house a few times, altered the settings on the esc, put it back on the floor and it locked up again. I unplugged the sensor cable from the motor straight away without doing anything else and it worked, not like it should but it worked.

So my thought is the sensor board is causing the issue but would this lock the motor and cause the heat issue.

Also, does anyone know if this sensor board will work with the RX series.

Thanks
