When you check your motor and ESC , look for color change in the wires ( inside the motor ) and smell them . If they get dark and smell like they're burning , then ... you get the picture .
What was the c rating of the battery ?
Batt is an 850mah 25-50c. 21.25 Amp to 42.50 amp burst. Should be fine for that motor. Folks are reporting 17-18 amps with my setup.
I'm picking up a watt meter this month and some other goodies. Wife and I limit ourselves to $150 a month each on disposable hobbies. May also pick up a few more of this motor.
Do you think the motor prop combo has anything to do with the increased maneuverability? This one is way more responsive while traveling fast. that last one I had issues with the plane not wanting to pull up at high speed. This one snaps up easily.
