Default Castle 80HV Loss of power

So I was flying my Trex 700E when suddenly, the blade started slowing down and the tail started spinning around wildly. Then like magic, the blades spun back up and I was able to regain control. Is there a way to read the ESC log and find out what went wrong? I'm not sure if it was a problem with my Flight pack batteries or the ESC itself.

I am wondering if a 80 amp esc is big enough for a 700 heli??

Found the problem. When I installed the remote receiver, I bent the pins so it never made contact, so in essence, the remote receiver wasn't doing it's job. When I flew out far enough, I lost signal to make the beastx default to failsafe mode and thats exactly what it did.

Check your connections!!!!
