My lipo on fire!!! Align ESC Help please!

Ok everyone so i am running a 3550 align kv motor with a 35 amp esc. I have a 2200 mah battery with a 10c const. Discharge rate. My problem occured when i was just spooling my heli up (with the batt. on the ground luckyly) and the first battery went dead after about 8 minutes of just checking stuff. No liftoff. And then i let the heli cool. Than i hooked up the 2200 mah 10c constant battery and out of nowhere it cought on fire!!! I quickly put it out. The polaritys were correct and everything! I had the ESC programmed to slow brake. High motor speed. And high discharge. I dont know if this was the problem or what was. If it was the ESC programming please let me know what i should program it for. please help me so i dont screw up another ESC, Motor, and battery. I was fortunate to get them replaced this time! Thanks a lot...

Todd
