Help!
Skyclimber problem

Hello,
I went to fly my Skyclimber today, at some moment I couldn't control on it for a few seconds, the ESC was beeping when it happened.
when the ESC stopped beeping, I could control it again and the motor was really weak.
it has a 20AMP ESC (stock), I have a Sawna SD-10G TX and RX600 RX.
I'm not sure what exactly the problem is.. I've checked the battery and it's alright, was full. tried another battery too and same issue.

Skyclimber beeping problem (0 min 56 sec)


I've recorded a video of the problem here, you can hear the beep twince, once when it falls off and once when it goes in the tree - and survived.



I really need your help.

How long were you flying for before it happened? Also how much was left on the battery when you tested it after the crash? You said in the video that the motor was really weak when you were trying to get it back. The motor will lose power first if the battery is very low.

Weird that it beeped and all control was lost though, range check was fine?

The beeps were different, the beep after the crash sounded a lot like an ESC arming.
