    I was running my Outcast and then all the sudden it stopped running. The esc was blinking green 4 times then would stop and repeat. I have tried a factory reset and it didn’t work. Can anyone tell me what is going on and how to fix it?

    How long were you driving it for? Did you still have steering? It sounds like low voltage cutoff to me.

    What is the voltage of the batteries and what kind of batteries are you running? What are the temperatures of the motor and ESC?

    I was running 2 2s lipos. They are both at 8.15V. The motor and esc weren’t even warm when it happened

    Motor cables all plugged in? They like to separate on hard landings.
