Default .Motor/speed control shutting down....

I only have minimal electric exp. and could use some help. I picked up a P-47 foamie (Hobby Lobby?) at a Flea Mkt. recently. It came with an MP Jet AC 28/7-35D motor and speed control (no name on control but hard wired to motor) and an APC 9x3.8 prop. Has two Hitec Hs 55's. I put a GWS 6 Ch. Rec. and a Thunder Tiger 1320 3 cell lipo in it.
I flew two short flights with it and both had the same results......flew a few half throttle circuits then gave full throttle and pulled into a loop. Plane makes it 1/4 through and the motor stops . After the nose drops I glide the plane in. The plane is controllable during the glide so control surfaces are working. I did not try throttling back up during the glide. Both times the plane was ~100 feet from me.

Any Ideas???? Is my speed control not up to the current draw and shutting down?

Thanks,
