The servo motor is going to freeze up, burn up the amplifier chip in the servo and over amp your Rcvr and ESC, cause them to reboot in flight, if it doesn't roll it uncontrollably into the turf before that.

Time to get that out of there. At least you got the chance to see effects and the lockup coming on. I think most of us find out In Air, which doesn't turn out too well usually...
