That battery can't supply the power the esc/motor is demanding. You are going to ruin that 2s battery if you keep it up.

Agreed for a 1/8 scale system.

Mavrick1965,
are you sure you don't have the 380 Yeti and not the XL? There is a forum just above the Yeti XL for the 1/10 scale Yeti. Either one we will need your motor and ESC combo to help but sounds like LVC kicking in.

No I really have the axial yeti xl.
Tried it again today with the fully charged 2s 5000 MaH battery and after 2 min same problem. I ordered 2, XF power 11.1V 5500 MaH 3s 45C battery’s hoping the problem will be solved.
What are your thoughts?

With the RTR electronics it will run fine on 2S. I run my rtr xl on 2S every once in a while and it runs fine, decent torque just not the top speed, with a 5200mah battery. Iíve even ran two 2S batteries in parallel for really long run time. I donít know exactly what your problem is but check for a loose connection, and possibly your transmitter batteries.

For a Servo recommendation I run a protek 170T. Which I run on a separate dedicated 2S, i.e. two 1S 950mah batteries wired in series thru a castle bec. That fit in the fuel cell box

Good luck

Make sure your battery c rating is up to par with the draw from your esc i run 1 3s battery in my xl but its 50c i had a 35c 3s that dident hold up and after a few runs the battery wouldent hold a charge even though the charger showed full voltage it did what yours is doing my guess would be you toasted the battery by drawing to many amps through it only takes 1 or 2 runs to ruin a battery if your drawing to many amps i know the mm2 says 3s minimmum the mmx says 2s i think there might be a update to make the mm2 run 2s as for the rtr axial branded esc they cant be reprogramed i tryed it dose recognize it and i can change a few things with 5he castle link but it cant be updated like the castle branded escs and i dont know if it can go down to 2s
