    Hesitation on take off.

    Alright. Charged up the 3s lipos that came with my X-MAXX and took it out for the first time. Right away on take off I hit the throttle and it started then stopped then took off again. It doesn’t do this every time but durning the 20 minutes I was out it did this about 8 times. One time it started and stopped 2 before it went. Any ideas here? If it matters this is the 8s MAXX running 6s

    Contact Traxxas, may be an esc issue.

    I was hoping that this wouldn’t be the case.

    Update the esc firmware via the Bluetooth and the problem is gone.

    What do I need to buy in order to update it via Bluetooth?

    If it's not that, check your battery connector solder joints on the packs and on the esc. Could also be a bad pack.

    A pack that can't supply enough current will cause that kind of issue. A bad solder joint or weak cell will do it.
    Expert rigging at it's best!
