    M41 battery issue

    I'm having a problem with my m41, I have a battery connector that gets so hot it melts the solder, however the battery itself is not hot, nor the motor and speed controller. I have the duel pick up rudder and have a grim racer 4255 prop..any help greatly appreciated

    The smaller diameter prop might be making it run to hot, stock is 42x59 so it's working extra hard.
    I use XT-90's and have no issues with heat and use 2-3s 5300 45c batteries.
