Trex 450 Sport Power Issue
Hey guys, so I've been enjoying my Trex 450 Sport for quite some time now, free of problems, gotten plenty of flights in. However in my latest flight, I had an issue immediately on take off.
So basically I had two batteries fully charged, popped one in and took off. About 20 seconds or so into the flight, the power cut off for about 2 seconds and then came back on. The helicopter just dropped a little but I regained control. So I immediately came back to land, but before I could do so the power seemed to surge again. Its not like it just lost power all together, it just went out for a brief moment and came back. I was thinking that maybe it was the battery, so I put in my second battery and took her up. This one flew for about 40 or so seconds before the same thing happened. I hovered closely above the ground for a bit, and this just constantly kept happening. Power cuts off, and comes back on for a while. Cuts off, and comes back on. Does anyone know what these symptoms mean? I checked the contact between the gear and pinion and it looked to be fine.
One thing I should probably mention though is that in the flight before this one, I was pushing my Trex 450 exceptionally hard (harder than ever), and doing some pretty intensive maneuvers. I'm not sure if that may have loosened something up.

I would check the ESC. I had this issue long time ago and had to reset my ESC to proper settings and voltage for helis.
Here is a link site to ESC setting for Align and other brands.
