Looking at the graph, the esc more than likely shut down due to over temp. It was at 250 deg when everything stopped & that’s what its designed to do.
The graph also shows the current rising to 94 amps just as you reach 1/2 throttle & a few seconds later peaking up to 117 amps, then dropping back to a little over 100 then slowly climbing back up to 117 again. This kinda looks consistent with the motor having drag or being constrained & things loosening up as they get warm then as the distortion takes place, tightening things up again causing hi heat & current. It also shows the motor, when 1/2 throttle is reached, reaching 42,713 rpm then with no throttle change dropping almost 7400 rpm in about 7 sec. then bouncing up & down – again with no throttle in change, till shut down. This is also consistent with the motor being constrained in some way.

The only thoughts here is if the motor had a bad bearing or fan clearance / something moved???????
