Ok,this one has me stumped. I tried a few different things and still can't figure it out.

Trex 600E
1100KV motor
Castle ice 100 esc
Castle 20A BEC

The last time it flew/crashed due to a mechanical failure all was good.

My current problem is that every time it spools up and winds up to approximately 1/4 power, it shuts down for a few seconds and then starts to spool up again and shut down, etc. I tried different batteries, looked at the settings and logs. I can't figure out what it is unless my motor or ESC is bad.

I had a Kontronik that would do that to me. Come to find out that it lost it's programing. Try to reprogram it and see if that helps.

Well I just got it start up and hold half throttle. Maybe the reprogram worked.

Well rpat, you apparently get the honor of having the best answer of the day. I reprogrammed it and the 600 spooled up and had a successful test hover.

Check your current limit, make sure it is INSENSITIVE or DISABLED. For heli use, this is required.

If you are using the default throttle mode, you must switch to at least use the fixed-endpoint throttle mode and calibrate TX to ESC (then you can move on to a governed mode, if desired). The default throttle mode of the CC ESCs is useless for helis. You must choose one of the heli modes and then calibrate your TX to the ESC.
