Just in case no one has tried it.....When I went to the Johnson motor,I of corse found I needed more power in the tail,and went to the DD GWS tail set-up. When I noticed I had too much tail athority,as in when I was landing and came down to an inch off the ground, and choped the throttle, the heli would spin to the right ( with my set-up that is too much tail athority hanging on after the throttle chop.I think my buddy said try a bigger prop,and the GWS 4X2.5 (with the black push-on addapter from GWS or MPI ) made a big differance, Most of you guys probubly already found this fix,but I just thought I throw it out.

Just be careful, you are pulling more current with the bigger prop. Flight times will be reduced, and you could possibly pop the FET on your board.

Ouch !

You are right, I only have a 2 Amp on my tail. But it has been on there for a few weeks.I'll check the amp draw.

dont chop your throttle when you land. touch down smoothly, and slowly lower your throttle. that's my cure! though, with the 50-xc + a oneway main gear, i dont have that problem anyway, i dont remember if i ever did. whatever.
