On my blad 400 I can be flying and it will almost shut down. Looses almost all power, stil enought to keep it off the ground though and I can set it down let it rest and it spools up fine. Is my ESC getting hott or something. I felt of it and it is pretty darn hott.

Hey, where's the reset button?

I had the same problem, my solution was replace the ESC. This ESC is one of the weakest part of the B400.

if you were doing a loop with it, it probably loost radio signal and re-gainged it. it happens when the battery or something gets in the way of the 2 antena's and blocks the signal. its happened to me too many times!

Sounds like "thermal shut-down" to me. The stock 25 amp ESC is barely adaquate. Any quality 35 amp ESC would better than stock.

thanks
Thanks guys. I just flew it and no problems at all. It's not a signal problem it would do it even if I just hovered. It usually happens about 2 and a half mins into flight. I'd say it's the ESC.
Appreciate all the help.
