I think it would be hard to blame the ESC for this one since he stuffed the Goblin into the ground from inverted from a series of increasingly wild piro flip type moves! The impact was enough to break all manner of things, and a battery short would lead to a fire every time. There was a lot of white smoke preceding the fire though. I'm not sure how lipo fires start out, but the dreaded white smoke from an ESC means the caps are burning. I thought the pilot took it pretty well.
