Had an old ESC burn up on me
Built a Tuffwing quick with an old 25amp ESC i bought back in 2006. the motor was a EMAX CF2822 & 5x7 prop . Was flying around for about 4 minutes when she rolled inverted and burned in from 100ft , I lost all control .. when i picked up the wing I could smell the esc. I did cut off the bullet connectors and soldered the wires straight to the motor. Did I do something wrong? I didn't notice anything funky when i ran it on the bench.

It is hard to say what it could be...
Looks liken there is no ventilation for the ESC... What temps was the ESC running at? I would be concerned about temps. Did you loose servo power also?
You can use the online repair form to send in the ESC...

Not worth it to me to send it in for repair , nothing I'm flying these days would use a 25amp esc. Probably pick up one of the newer 40amps y'all are putting out.
