Consider yourself lucky that it was on the ground and not airborne.

More Info Needed!!

A lot of things going on at one time...need to know the machine, power (size batteries) , throttle curve, motor kv, gearing, esc make and listed size (amperage) head speed you are setup for..
If you were flying with too low of a hs (can also cause tail wag) your esc could have overheated.,. When you started to spool up the esc could not handle the load..
We will try to help you out!!!

70amp speed control required on Trex500. As others have said, we need more information about the setup and equipment used.

An inexperienced pilot can at times use more power than someone experienced flying these things. I have only burned out one esc in the last 8 or 10 years of flying. I was up in the rockies at 8500ft and the air was a bit thin.
