Question for all - But a little OT

I have a Hacker X-7 (actually 2). Here is my problem - I fly a 3 channel plane around and occasionally, it will lock out the motor (the controls still work fine). After having it happen many times, I try to fly in somewhat close overhead and push the throttle to zero. I hear a fairly loud "BeeP" and the motor works again. It does this with both ESC's. After swapping everything many times, it comes down to everything works great with no problems if I use a 10A ESC. I several know low amp draw servos and no change. I monitored all changes with a watt meter and I am not exceeding the 1A rating of the ESC. So, the obvious problem is the ESC's (2). Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong with the insides of the unit?
The reason I ask is because I would like to "fix/modify" the ESC's to work properly just to learn something new.
