start search with the 3 wires from esc to motor...sounds like a loose connection. one more thing........welcome to wattflyer mike. this is a a hobby of many things that can go wrong and probably will. my tranmitter of 4 years just went on the fritz today pretty much squashing any flying till my new module arrives from hk[china]. it's the first time i'v ever paid for "ems" shipping....thats how much i want to get back to flying...lol.

narrow is the place to land...wide is the space to crash....choose the narrow way!

Agreed with the above post.
Check to make sure solder connections are good. Even the slightest fraye is enough to cause that problem

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

disconnect the 3 wires from the motor and esc, use a volt ohm meter and check for equal continuity on the motors 3 wires, testing 2 wires at a time, there should not be any continuity from the motor wires to the motor metal case, pull on all the connectors on the esc and motor, sometimes a wire will break inside the plastic wire covering at the connectors, hope that helps, Chellie

you can get a cheapy volt ohm meter at Harbor freight tools for about $5.00 if your in the USA

Glad you were able to find the problem. I beleive we all have alot to learn that is what makes the forumns so great. Just a mass welth of knowledge in one itty bitty box :-)

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
