PRODUCT BULLETIN: E-flite 130-amp ESC (EFL3130H) Included with the Blade® 550 X

Horizon Hobby is aware of a small percentage of Blade® 550 X owners who have experienced a failure of the E-flite® 130-amp ESC (EFL3130H) resulting in a loss of power to the motor. The actual number of ESC failures is still relatively low and our data indicates it is currently around 6%. This is only affecting a proportionately small number of Blade 550 X owners, but it is higher than what we consider reasonable. We have been working on a solution, but at this point have been unable to re-create the failure mode pattern as indicated by most customers reporting the problem. It is not required to stop use of the EFL3130H 130-Amp ESC.
