450 Pro with KDE cutting out
Anyone out the there running the kde motor with the stock esc? I flew mine for two flights and was very impressed with the motor. Unfortunately 3 minutes into the 2nd flight the power cut and my heli fell from the sky. After fixing everything, I can power up the heli and fly it but I haven't tried any more 3d with it. Is this motor too much for the stock esc when flying 3d?

I have had awesome luck with Align's 450 ESCs. They have always run just a little warm and this is the first time I have had one cut out in flight after owning and using 4 of these ESCs over many years. This esc is in excellent shape with around 100-150 flights (not many at all Imo). It is the 35x model. I am running jr 285MGs and a 9257 on the tail. I am running stock gearing/pinion with the helical main gear. 35C 2200 Hyperion packs.

Anyone that has advice with experience using this motor would be greatly appreciated!!

Nobody is running this combo?

I went ahead and swapped in a castle 35 amp esc and Medusa bec. Hopefully running a seperate bec will take some of the strain off of the ESC and it won't cut out again. I am waiting on a few new parts so I'll find out later this week when I get a few test flights in if this combo works.

i never used that motor but it is a lot more powerful than the stock so i would imagine the 35amp isnt up to the task

I've run the stock esc on 4s on a 3595kv motor (separate bec). Did the bec portion fail..not the esc?

I still had control of the servos, the motor power just cut out. I was being a little rough on it, but not much more than usual (with the Scorpion). I have run a lot of different motors on these Align ESCs in a lot of different helis and even planks. This is the first one I have had shut down in flight.

After turning everything off and on, I have power to the motor and can still hover it with the original ESC. Just afraid to fly it like normal so I am swapping ESCs first since I have a spare CC35 with a medusa BEC already wired up.

Edit: flew it for 3 packs today at 100% on the cc35 & Medusa bec. No cutting out and it ran nice and cool. The motor and esc stayed under 100 degrees after 4 minute flights.
