    Vorteks ESC blinking when connecting 3S LiPo

    Hi all, My Vorteks ESC is blinking blue when connecting an 11.1V 3S 4000mAh LiPo. A 7.2 NiMH is working fine, as well as a 7.4V 2S 4000mAh LiPo. No issues at all. Just the 11.1V one is giving me issues. I wonder if 11.1V is actually supported by the BLX ESC I'm having. It's the Arrma BLX80...
