EEEsssh, that sucks. Hopefully not to banged up?

I've had a similar problem with a completely different motor. Worked fine in static testing but cut out and required re-arming on launch. Usually there wouldnt be enough air between the plane and the ground to get it done in time. It was a custom double hot wind with a small prop on a fast delta. Turns out, I experimented with programming on the ESC and found the right combo of soft start and slower timing and the problem has been gone ever since. Thank goodness the plane I made was a simple profile built just for testing the motor before it went into a more 'special' plane.

Not saying this will solve your prob but it sounds similar. How is the gague of the wire from the esc to the motor?
