Default Sudden Rotor RPM Loss

Just wondering if I'm having an ESC failure - anyone have trouble with the 45 amp E-Flite ESC that comes in the heil?


Finally got my Blade 360FX 3s flying well with a Spirit Pro. So I've been fine tunning the Spirit for 3d flying - cranked up the cyclic limit to about 10 deg and the colective to 12 deg.

Did a couple flips yesterday, and the heli lost rpm on about the third one. Hit the throttle hold just before impact and landed hard, breaking the skids. I chalked it up to me being rusty on flips or possibly not having it in IU2.

Repaired the skids and flew it again today. Pulled a loop, did three flips, pulled another loop and - at the bottom of that loop, rotor lost rpm again. I hit the throttle hold and managed to autorotate a bit, landing hard again upright, breaking skids again. Am I working the factory ESC too hard running that much pitch?
