Tony,

I think you are right about it being OTP rather than OCP. When mine cuts out, it is never soon after hitting full throttle which is when max current is achieved. It can cut out after a few seconds of full throttle but some times it happened a few seconds after reducing to mid or low throttle - again, not what I'd expect from OCP. Also, I'm in Houston, TX which is much warmer than ID, MN, etc where others have not had issues with heat (yet). It was in the upper 80's when I was experiencing issues.

Based on this, I'm going to look at how I can improve the cooling of the ESC.. Thanks for mentioning OTP as the potential issue.

Alan
