The ESC used -the BEC used can be the primary fault - NOT an actual loss of battery power to those components .
When th faulty electronics cools - everything looks normal
Been there- been caught by an inadequate bec in a ESC
I do recall now that the Brownout Detection is only supposed to work in DSM2 Mode, but the AR8000 manual does not mention this under the section dealing with Brownout Detection. At any rate, the LED flashes Slowly.
The manual also mentions Hold Detection. A Rec LED flashes fast indicating the number of Holds (Failsafe Events) that have occurred.
I have never had any Holds or Brownouts on my AR8000 so I had to look up the manual
