1) if this is an RTF, then the only way the BEC can be a problem is if you changed the battery or the BEC is defective.

2) How did you range check the radio? Did you do it with the antenna down? What procedure do they provide in the manual?

3) You may have a flat spot on the throttle. I have that on some of my very heavily used Aerobird radios. You hit a spot where the throttle cuts out. it is a very very tiny window but it is there.

4) you could have a bad contact on the throttle. If you lean on it or push on it, the motor could cut out.

Again I say, if this is a new plane, take it back or call customer service. You know, if hte throttle cuts out and CAUSES the crash, it should be covered under warranty.

Anyway, that is about the best I can offer.
