    You sure it wasn't the rx. I could hear the motors spinning alway to floor. Couldn't tell really.

    Hi Mozquito1, not that I could tell. I replaced the ESC's today and almost had the same issue. I'm thinking iot may be a brown-out. Going to do a thorough maintenance session on the bird.

    Maybe change the antenna placement.
    Have you got a single or diversity rx.
    In my experience other than to totally kill an esc, I've never had an esc on its own just stop working mid-flight. Even cheap ones. Do you use airmode.?

    Possibly even voltage sag. The same thing happened to me every flight until airmode came out.

    I'm going to do an overhaul, clean it up and check for bad solder points. using a X4R RX and using a Kiss V2
