Default Mini Ultra Stick - Quad Flap / Motor / ESC Help

Hi WattFlyer community. I'm new to the electric flight world and return to RC flying after a long hiatus. I'm hoping you can help me out with a bit of a conundrum.

I'm flying a Mini Ultra Stick, which I recently converted to the quad flap setup.

I've setup the plane with:
EFlite Park 450
EFlite 20-Amp Brushless ESC (V2)
EcoPower 3S 30C 2200mah
Spektrum A3030 servos

Now when I plug in the battery, everything seems normal. I take off and fly for a bit, then when I land, the motor continues to spin. It's almost like an idle type spinning of a glow engine, when the transmitter throttle lever is fully down. It's not enough thrust to move the plane and the throttle won't advance the speed of the motor.

Is this a sign of an overheating ESC?

I did attempt to fly with all 6 servos, before installing the ParkBEC. I quickly realized the error of my ways when the servos weren't happy. They were jumpy and had bad delays, but I managed to get back on the ground safely. Could that have damaged the ESC?

Thanks for any educated insight...
