Well 6 1/2 flights deep and my motor and/or ESC is done. As I said when I first got it the ESC got pretty warm just setting up the control surfaces. Well today I went out with 4 batteries. The sun was setting, no wind, 58F in central Ohio....perfect. Took off and got about 25' high and the motor just stopped. I was able to save it and land perfectly with zero damage. Checked the throttle and the motor was cogging badly. Got my temp gauge and the ESC was 155F and motor 167F after a 20sec flight! Horizon is sending me a new motor and ESC, but its grounded for a week or better.
