Question
Had an old ESC burn up on me

Built a Tuffwing quick with an old 25amp ESC i bought back in 2006. the motor was a EMAX CF2822 & 5x7 prop . Was flying around for about 4 minutes when she rolled inverted and burned in from 100ft , I lost all control .. when i picked up the wing I could smell the esc. I did cut off the bullet connectors and soldered the wires straight to the motor. Did I do something wrong? I didn't notice anything funky when i ran it on the bench.
