I’m having issues when I run 6s on outcast. As I’m driving it it will by itself go full throttle for a second or two enough to wheelie and do back flips. It’s out of control especially when jumping. I’m thinking my esc is failing. Any ideas?

You could try re-binding and re-setting your parameters but it may not help. My BLX started doing stupid stuff not long after it got wet once.

And that’s when it started with me. So I need a new esc. What’s a better upgrade?

The Max6 just barely fits in. You'll need to turn your center body support around. But I it's been very reliable and the price was good. I think I paid $125 or $150 for it.

I run a Max 8 v3 w/1600 kv 4082 and it's been flawless. Castle MMX is also a good product. If you intend on using a larger can in the future then as Paultro84 said, a Max 6 would definitely be the way to go.

Before getting a new ESC, check your throttle trim on your radio, as it possibly could have moved accidentally. If it moved just a bit, hopefully it might be the cause of this, and you just need to adjust the trim back slightly (in neutral).

I have no idea but it doesn’t do it anymore. It could be re learning the throttle. That’s all I’ve done so far
Mike, I gather the throttle trim had "NOT" accidentally moved in your tool bag? If not, was it possibly the battery connector not 100% connected that time possibly?

Very possible cause shortly after that I had to spread the connectors male ends. The connections were very lose
