We need information: what motor, what ESC, what prop?????????????

Are you sure the pack is fully charged - has it been discharged and recharged a few times????

If you have anything more than an 8" prop on it, you may be close to the limit for the ESC. I'd try a smaller prop (7x5?) and just see if the same thing happens. Your pack may well be fine: but normally Lipo packs are delivered with less than full charge, and they need to be fully charged, then discharged a few times to "cycle" them and get the best from them. Run the motor gently, at low throttle, just to drain some of the pack, then recharge.
