Second Fire in as many weeks - Help!
I have one of the first T-rex 600e’s that came into the UK. It’s a bit like Triggers Broom but until 3 weeks ago the motor, ESC and BEC were the originals as supplied. Then I upgraded to the Align 3G Flybarless Head Combo. Flew great and really happy then at the start of the 3rd flight as I throttled up to half stick the blades started to turn then stopped as the motor stopped turning. I pull the stick back to the bottom and raised it again when the ESC burst into flames causing major damage. The following was written off. Motor, ESC, BEC, Battery, Remote Rx and undercarriage.

Following a total clean and rebuild I fitted a new Align BL600MX Motor, Align 100amp ESC, Align 6A BEC, Align Lipo 2S1P for radio, Spektrum AR7000 plus Remote Rx. and Align Lipo 6S2P 22.2v 5200mAh. So the only original items left were the servos and Align 3G control.

1st Flight great, 2nd even better. Home we go..... happy. New day 1st flight I throttled up to half stick the blades started to turn then stopped as the motor stopped turning. I pull the stick back to the bottom and raised it again, smelt burning, when the ESC burst into flames again causing even more major damage.

After £250 already and facing even more this time...... Any ideas because no one I know has. Remember ALL the electrical parts were brand new except the servos and Align 3G control.

Thanks in anticipation.
