Default Light Stryker power problems - trying to phone home to E.T.

My plane has developed some ... odd symptoms. It is not only losing power at random times, it seems to be trying to play music. Here are some excerpts from onboard.

Isn't that the music from Close Encounters of the Third Kind? What the heck?

Thanks, Chellie. The 20A should be fine for now at least; it was the only ESC I had sitting around. I'm probably pulling around 12A or so, so the 30 was serious overkill.
