I'll make this as short as I can... Scorpion 4035-560 motor on 12S, Castle Edge 120HV ESC and iKon (V2) using the iKon gov. My heli started bogging VERY badly. Like it was hitting LVC but if I left it alone a second it would build speed back up, it just won't hold it through a maneuver. Just tries to die out. Turns out the soldering job done by the guy I got this from between the motor and ESC was horrible! I twisted one of the bullets off by hand. Barely any solder touching the wire. I re-soldered everything using CC 5.5mm solid bullets like I normally do and thought I'd found my problem. Went back out yesterday and same thing. All I did were pitch pumps for 2 minutes. The motor and ESC were so hot I couldn't touch them. The logs show nothing wrong. The Castle logs don't show it bogging at all. It's as if it thinks the motor is turning the 2250 RPM it's set for, or at least governing very close to that. It also doesn't show it overheating. So... I'm afraid if the motor is damaged and I put my Edge 160 on it I could fry that ESC. Does this sound like an ESC issue, motor or possibly the iKon? The part of the ESC that got so hot was right at the end of the case where the three motor wires exit the ESC. I smell nothing burned. Doesn't mean it isn't, I just don't smell anything and the wires that I can see through the holes in the top of the motor look fine. Thank you very much for any help.
P.S. Packs are all good and strong. It isn't a battery issue I promise.
