Hello,

Can i Get some inputs on the problem that I'm Having. My set up is an Align 400s Motor (13 tooth pinion) & Align 25 Amp ESC. Whenever my pitch curve is set at max 100% (Point 5) the motor cuts out. When i lower it to at least 90% on Point 5 it runs ok. I dont know my current pitch setting as i don't have a pitch gauge. Do I have to much pitch?

First off, try recalibrating the ESC. When you do, ensure your in a flight mode that shows it 100% of your throttle, top to bottom. Do not calibrate it in a flight mode that ony shows 90%, etc.

It's possible the ESC is going into current limit, due to high amperage draw, but I don't think it should totally cut out.

Do the Re-cal and let us know.

Also, check that your battery is capable of handling the current draw.

If you drain more than what it can supply the voltage will drop and the ESC will shut down, going into BEC cut-off.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Yeah, put it in Normal Mode and set the points to default 0, 25, 50, 75, 100

then cal as per instructions for the ESC.
