Default NEED FRIGGIN HELP!!!

Guys I have a parkzone T-28 Trojan great plane. Well now all of a sudden once in a while when I am holding the plane and apply full throttle it will go full throttle for a second or two then slow down while the stick is at full throttle still. Then if I bring the stick all the way back, and then up, it will do the same thing. Some times it does this, some times it does not. ESC is basically brand new! at full throttle is acts like it is only at 1/4 throttle. Something is defintley not right.

What the heck is the issue.? ESC faulty? ESC over heating?

Will a new ESC fix this problem. I do not think I have the warranty anymore do you think horizon hobby would help me out?

Thanks

What is the voltage on your battery? If the batt didnt get a good chargem you could just be hitting the normal low voltage cutoff as soon as you hit full throttle.

I have noticed that the cells are around 3.76V per cell when this is happening. It has done it with fully charged batteries though.
