Has this happened to anyone else. I am a beginner and am off the rotopod, I have had a couple of minor, (no damage tail strikes) and the gryo seems to go out of adjustment and the heli rotates and I have no control of it until I shut down and power off and on power. Any thoughts?

When you had a tail strike, you tried to hover but the tail spins.. right?. There's a possibility that you had moved the rudder trim in a panic caused the gyro from centering . Normally when you reset the gyro.. that is off and on the switch.. the 401 should be back to its centering position..

Could also be that your servo is damaged. Make sure it moves freely and smoothly and check the gears inside the case. In most of my crashes that take out the tail, the servo gears go as well.

I think that must be it, as I was hovering when it happened and I was trying to avoid losing it, I probably moved the control and didn't realize it because it does reset when I turn it off and back on. Thanks for your input.

Tail strike

Wow!!!
I'm thinking if I had a strike I would want to shut everything down for an inspection anyway, The next time I (you) power up the heli could eat your face off.
