I'd be all over the sale but I just paid for a belated honeymoon cruise to the Caribbean in 16 days on the largest cruise ship in the world!

Do ESC's wear out?

I have loved flying the Crack Yak 55 equipped with the TH 2206/12 amp ESC combo for several months, alternating between 2S and 3S. I installed heavy duty servos at the build, but the ESC didn't seem to mind. Recently however, both motor and servos sometimes completely die in midair and the plane noses into the ground. But by the time I walk over and pick it up, everything is working again as it should. My Spektrum AR6100 receiver is not flashing to indicate a signal interruption. Can the ESC deteriorate over time, or do I have a different problem here? Thanks for your help. Michael

That sounds like a receiver issue. Try another rx and if you dont have a spare try re-binding yours.

Had this happen to me a couple times. Took time to find out it was a loose connector between the battery and esc. The packs were pretty old from swapping back and forth. Might be the cause for you too. Dan beat me to it...lol. Forgot about that possible cause.

BTW love your airbrush work Dan. Give me a regular spray gun no problem, but these airbrushes give me headaches.
