I have a Trex 700e DFC running a 850mx (490kv) 13t pinion/110 main gear with a Castle Creations 160 Edge HV . Last year I had the exact same problem with a 160 Edge and ended up using the trade in program for a replacement . The first 160 esc lasted a good amount of flights in the hundreds . Then one day I would spool up and when I try to punch out the esc would go into a cutoff and I will have to land . This happened every time . I contacted castle and sent the esc in they sent it back said it was fixed and the same thing happened . When I contacted them I was told something was slipping . The pinion , one way , motor shaft... I knew nothing was slipping and can here the motor cutoff also . So for testing purpose I switched to a Castle 120 and the heli didn't cutoff it worked fine . I then paid for the trade in program and bought another 160 edge a year ago . I haven't got to fly much this past year maybe 25 flights on the heli . This past weekend my second to last flight I will spool up switch into idle up on the ground and punch out hard the heli went into a cutoff then flew the rest of the flight , my last flight did the exact same thing and it would cutoff everytime I try to punch out now . I came home took the 120 edge out my 550 and tested my 700 it had no problems and flew fine . I again am dealing with Castle Creations and getting told they think the heli is slipping again . I am going to follow the program and send it in but would like to know if anyone has had a problem like this before or if I should switch to a new brand esc ? Any help would be great because if I have to do this once a year it would be a pain !

Thread I posted when this first happened !

Here are my Castle 160 Edge settings for my Trex 700 and a graph of the last flight where it would cutoff.

Here is the 120 test graph and a normal 700 flight graph from a previous flight when it works !

You might be better off closing one of these duplicate threads.......

It will be too confusing for folks to follow and respond to two identical threads (cross posting)

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....
