Vector / Fixed Wing - throttle shutting off?

I have my vector setup on a surfer 1500 from ReadyMadeRC using an EzUHF RX.
I'm having weird issues with my motor shutting off. I did a bench test where I ran the motor wide open for 5 minutes and nothing seemed to get hot.

Yesterday I launched flew out about 200 feet and engaged loiter. The plane circled about 4 times and then all of a sudden it stopped circling. The motor shut off and it started gliding in a straight line and probably would have landed if I didn't take control back.

On another flight after about 15 minutes of flying (with more than 11.5 volts left on lipo) the motor cut out and I had to land. After it was on the ground the motor started right back up.

Any one have any idea what might be going on or how to isolate it?
I have a lot in the mix- ezUHF, Vector and cheap ESC / Motor that came with the ready to fly plane kit.

Thanks John. I haven't been able to reproduce it in order to capture the log files off the Vector. I've flown around 40 minutes since then (including 5 minutes of loiter ) and it hasn't done anything unexpected.

If it does It again I'll make sure I get the log file!
