Default jUST THAT QUICK!

I have a axial scx 10 . original axial 55 engine but a novak rooster ESC. Today I go to drive it and it is not driving at all. Jumping all over forward , reverse and the ikes. Is my ESC done and should I get a new one? Any input will be greatly appreciated.

try hooking the motor directly to the battery, and see if it spins fine. Could be your motor is going.
If it spins fine I would swap the channel one, and channel 2 to rule out the radio. if the servo works fine on channel 2 than its likely your ESC.

Thanks for all the help. Almost bought a Goat 21.5 to replace it  and just when I go to try and start taking everything apart , I turned it on and it was fine . After a lil working on the throttle switch. Its back to crawling.
