I am not using the curves only flying with the Governor which is set to medium,just a thought is it possible if I was using to much collective it would blow the tail out,I dont have any bogging while doing it with Nitro,very smooth.

The pitch ranges for an electric and the gear ratios are different. Yes you can blow out the tail of you setup the electric like a nitro as far as tail speeds. You need one thing more leverage. You can get that two ways:

(1) Bigger tail blades...the more of a disc at the rear of the heli, the more tail authority you will have. of course this is limited by the distance of the main blades to the tail blades but I typically go with what is recommended or maybe one size bigger.

(2) More tail speed. That can be accomplished by more HS (translates into a faster tail, or a gear ratio that is taller and allows for a faster spinning tail.

These two things will combat the blow out of the tail. Fix this and you will be golden

You said you were using 12 degrees collective which is fine but you shouldn't be using it all to do tic tocs.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Can drastically change the CG and flying characteristics and is the most expensive way to fix the issue (especially if you have a TT)...
