I finally built my plane and started testing it on my workbench. If I moved the servos a lot (using my transmitter), the motor would cut out, the ESC would play a tone similar to when I first turn it on, and after 3-5 seconds the motor would restart. During the reset, the servos still responded. I flew the plane with issue as I knew the extreme control inputs I had given in testing wouldn't be needed in flight.
I think the problem is probably that my BEC is too small, but I'd just like your confirmation.
Details about my setup:
- I am using a 3 cell battery
- The ESC has a 1-amp BEC.
- I am using a Spektrum AR410 receiver (although I don't think this is relevant)
- I have 2x 6 gram servos on extensions.
- Depending on which direction you rotate the control surfaces, they do need quite a bit of force.
