Default Novak gtb or lipo probs :(

Ok my t4 has got a problem, i just got a new trinity lipo with a built in cut off and i have a novak gtb (first gen No cut off) with a 13.5 and it goes fine but then i gun it (pull trigger fully on acceleration) and i hear the motor trying to go for 1/4 of a second and stops....nothing i then have to unplug the battery and replug it in and all is good till next time.....i am so annoyed with it and my self becuase i just cant figure it out

BTW the fan also stops

and it is fully charged battery

Thanx in advance

Cheers, matt

Default lipo

this electronics stuff can really be frustrating when it doesn't work properly.... for starters U need to try a different battery, even if it is a non lipo (prefer lipo) borrow one if necessary, if it still does it move on to the motor and change that, if that is not the problem change the speed control... the big thing here is not to change more than one thing at a time becuse u'll never know the culprit if u do more than one thing and check it out befor u do something else.. good luck..

It sounds to me like the low-voltage cut-off in the battery itself is kicking in...thus cutting all power off to the ESC in the process.

I would recommend trying another type of pack as well.
