Lightbulb ESC Quits in a crash

Hi i have a lrp Q c 2 ...

when i have a crash, the ESC seems to quit on me.

the battery is still connected coz my transponder light is still on and also my steering servo still operates....

however when i push the throttle it does nothing except the motor make a small noise... (similar noise to that when you set your esc)

i have to shut disconnect the battery and then plug it back in again... and then it may work..... this only seems to happen after i have a bit of a tumble...

any ideas?

thanks

something may be slightly bent or broken inside the speed controller and is getting thrown around inside when u have a crash causing something to arck nad the speed contreoller shuts itself down. Have a look inside if something is lose see if you can fix it if not it might be a new speed controller for you.

ESC doesn't make noise, motor does.

Check your motor too, maybe the brushs are not seated properly after crashes.
