I'm finishing my first build. I got all of the wiring worked out and installed the motor. On the first throttle test the motor spun quickly and then stopped (all in less than a second). The same thing happened on a second and third tests. The esc and motor both get VERY hot, very quickly. I removed the motor and took it apart. The bearing seem fine and there was not anything lodged inside the motor. I'm at a loss for what to do next. I've ordered a second motor and esc to see if I simply have bad parts.

I appreciate any ideas or suggestions on what to do next. Still trying to get to that maiden flight.

Thanks and happy landings,

If anyone should be able to give you a response with substance, you need to provide more facts about your system. Type of motor, ESC, battery etc...
