Default Mega Motor Stuttering

Wonder if you can help.

I test flew a model yesterday with the following set up (used to be IC power)

Chilli Breeze RC Plane

Mega Motor 22/30/2 motor

Saker 80Amp Esc

4s 3200 Lipo

10 x 6 APC E prop


Model took off of the ground fast and flew around for a few minutes fine then I lost power to the motor.

Landed and inspected model.

Motor and ESC warm.

Motor now stuttering / cogging / jittering with prop on.

Motor runs smoothly with prop off! (tested on bench with a 3s 2200mAh Lipo

Any idea what my issue maybe?

First thing is to check the connections between the motor and esc and make sure they are soldered well and the connections are tight.

After that without a spare motor or ESC to troubleshoot it will be difficult.

It could be many things. The motor may have a failing winding that only causes issues under a heavy load.
The ESC may have a failing fet that only acts up under load. Or some other issue .

You could try changing the ESC's timing but that won't be a fix however it may help in the troubleshooting.

The best thing is to get/borrow a good ESC or motor and test them with your equipment.
