Your battery sounds like it is either not high enough mAh (affects current) or just way too old.

I know LiPo setups demand high current batteries that come with high mAh ratings. How old are the batteries, and how's the mAh? If it's running for a few minutes then stopping I believe that the mAh is just way too low, or your charger has some issues.

The Built in BEC will cut off the voltage after the voltage drops below a rating.

The default battery profile is set to Auto Lipo. If you are running NiMH's, change the battery profile to #2 instead. Hope this helps!
