My new stock Tornado loses power after about 5 minutes, Eventually it will get full power again for a few seconds, then lose power again. Sometimes it stops completely. Motor temp was 137, ESC was 105 , battery was 103 degrees. That seems ok to me but it acts like an overheat mode. I'm using a 3800 milliamp 7.4 lipo. Any ideas on what to do short of replacing the electronics?
do you have the brushed, or the brushless version?
If its brushless, it sounds like its going into Low Voltage mode a bit early. If it is going into overheat protection, the ESC flashes red (if i remember correctly)
If its going into LVC as I suspect, charge your batt...run the buggy till it stops....then read the voltage of your battery. You wanna rule out that your lipo or charger isnt to blame. 103 is a bit high for a lipo IMO. Whats the "C" rating of that lipo?
