Other problem i upgraded to micro jet v3 kit from grayson hobby. Kit comes with motor, esc, battery ect.Motor goes dead when going to full throttle stays off for few seconds and comes back on. This only happens at full throttle. Esc is 20amp. that came with kit. So is esc bad to small or what do you think.
Thanks for your help.
I'd put the dowels on the sides. That's the direction the tail hitting something has the most leverage.
It's possible you are overloading the ESC and it hit's thermal shutdown. Using too large a prop could cause this problem. If you are using the right propeller (6x4 or smaller) and your wiring is sound then you may need to change the ESC timing or you could have a bad ESC.
Can you run up the motor to full throttle and hold it there without a prop?
