I have an align 420 motor and an align 25 esc. When I try to spool up, the motor will only hit about 60 percent capacity at full throttle and it surges up and down. It also gets hot, way to hot to touch. The esc gets hot, the motor seems to be at normal temp

Could be a bad set up. Did it do that after a while of use or after a crash? Sounds like a bad esc set up. If it worked fine before and now then maybe it is something you may have changed. Is the drive smooth with pinion away from the maingear? Also sounds like binding or a bad bearing. had that happen once and that's what it was.

Fifth flight, prior to this, everything worked fine. I was getting ready to upgrade the motor to a Mega, but decided to keep the 420 until I had a problem with it. I remounted the motor, checked the pinion and everything was "bind" free. I have since checked the motor alignment again and it seems to be just right. I re-programmed the esc and it seems worse now. It takes me forever to get the motor to spin up, then when it eventually does, it just surges, almost like it is glitching severly.
