Default Flashed xp12a and hp08s stalls on start up?

Wazzup? Just got stuff soldered up and test ran motor without blades and it spooled up nicely...then put blades on and not it stutters and stops quickly. If I try to start it a couple more times it still stutters and esc gets hot. WTF???? Any advice would be helpful. Thx

Good connectors, wiring and short connections? Micro Deans, at least 24AWG wire. Solder directly to motor from ESC and Battery directly to ESC then jumper to main board for power. The stock 26AWG wire and connectors are too wimpy for beefed up motors.

YMMV, Don

Are you starting it in IU or Normal mode?

Double check your TX binding procedures.
