it could be a hitec connector that is lose

at first my hitec connector that connected my power was lose and sometimes it would sop if it was tilted

have a look at them al and see what you think

Definitely a bad/loose connection somewhere, as Joker said.

Its called a 'ghost connection', where it only works when you test it. :P
