    The battery might have been dead because the stock one only gets around 10 minutes run time. Get yourself a temperture gauge. You can get one for around $20 - $25. The little Revos have heat issues, know how hot you are getting.

    Try checking the temps before the battery starts to drain down, maybe about five minutes into the run time. As the battery dies, the amps it produces and its voltage will drop down significantly. These low levels starve the motor and when this imbalance occurs you can get heating. The motor pulls on the battery very hard at this point, and will also cause the battery to heat. Probably not the best idea to run it completely down. When you notice the performance dropping off, stop the run and put in another fresh pack.
