Does anyones align esc lose power mid way through flight? i think i might have a heat sensor that cuts power when it reaches a certain temp. is this true and can i bypass this or just mount it outside the canopy for better airflow? it works great for about 3 mins of flight then loses power then after sitting for a few mins will work again
thanks

Losing power as in cutting off? Or just reducing throttle?

I had the exact same situation with the align esc that came with my
XL. It would cut out after 3-4 minutes in the air. Esc was too hot to hold a finger on. After cool down it flew and repeated.

First flight with a castle phoenix 35 and I went 11 minutes. No hot.

There are all sorts of things that could cause this behavior besides a failing ESC. Your battery could be bad, and when you let it sit for a bit the battery voltage recovers a little. Or it could be overheating because of excess load on the engine caused by wrong pinion, bad bearing, belt too tight, mesh too tight between motor pinion and main gear, etc. Or you could have a bum ESC.

Sounds strange.. mine just gets warm. 13T pinion.

Does it do this will all of your packs? What is the voltage on your pack when this happens, and what do you have the auto-cutoff set at?
