    What ESC were you using? What battery? What motor?

    You need to use a motor/prop/ESC combination that is capable of working together. Get one wrong, and things burn.

    Now, explain a little more about what the thing ran on before, and the EXACT things you tried with now, and you might get better replies. I really cannot be bothered to give my time to work out solutions with so little info.
