Default Flux Blur ESC Issue...HELP!!

So I would be calling HPI with this issue, but they seem to be closed today. I just received a brand new Flux Blur ESC as a replacement for a bad part on a used Vorza. I plugged my LiPo in and all seemed to be working fine for a few minutes. Then all of a sudden it acts as though my batteries have no juice, like the cutoff is going into effect. However, after checking, this is not the case. I checked the ESC and there is a orange and green blinking light at this point. Also the auto LiPo is not working properly. Example: I plugged in 2 brand new 3S Gens Ace LiPo's and it only recognized 4, then 3...I am going insane trying to get this thing working. FYI - I have the castle link and have setup the ESC properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What ESC settings are you using ?

Have you calibrated the ESC to your transmitter ?

Cheers

Everything is pretty much stock, the only things I changed were the drag brake settings, and the reverse settings. I am going to attempt to reset to default and try again.

I have calibrated 3 times, each time after settings were changed.

I will get back with results on a freshly charged batt, and default settings.

Use the following settings to get you started

Auto-lipo
LVC 3.5v / cell
Zero timing (0)
Start Power High
Punch and Torque Limiting disabled


Centre your throttle trim
Set your throttle / brake EPA's at 100%
Calibrate the ESC to your transmitter


Cheers
