Just giving a heads up. My bosses ESC shorted out on his 550X with about 20 flights on it. In Horizons defense they did send out a warning about the ESC. He figured with the amount of flights he had on it that his was alright. What it did was lost power to the motor and he autoed it down. Good thing the bec worked to power the servos until he landed. While he was walking over to it, it burst into flames. After the fire was put out they couldn't find anything left of the battery. Helicopter is a total loss. If your thinking to keep flying yours you may want to rethink that and get a hold of Horizon. Like I said I am not bashing Horizon as they have sent bulletins out. So please be careful. Chuck

Not sure what they will do now. He will. Call them tomorrow and we will see. I think their offer is if you send the ESC in you will get a check for $100. I will check on that tomorrow as well. You are right though it is a great flying heli. Chuck

Sorry for the loss but since the esc bulletin was not actually a product recall, HH should man-up and supply the necessary parts to rebuild it imho. They do have very good CS so let us know how you make out. thanks.

Cheers,
