castle thunderbird 54

I have a problem with this esc in that when I plug it into my 2 brushless motors using 3.5 bullet connectors (power 25 1250kv and OS .25 1200kv the motor does not spin freely. What I mean is that I can spin both my motors freely (by hand) not connected to the esc but when connected there is friction during rotation or what seems to be friction. I thought there was something wrong with the motor but the power 25 is one day old. To test out my theory on the thunderbird esc I connected both motors to an eflite 60 amp esc that I have laying around and both motors spin freely as they should with no friction of any kind. So my questiion is what could the problem be or is this a normal action from a castle esc? This is the first castle esc that I have owned. I am no expert but I do know that there is something wrong.
