I am experiencing some strange tail rotor authority. If the helicopter is in flight in such a position that tailrotor would be under the most load, I lose control authority, but only when trying to control in a clockwise rotation(most torque demand). The the more right rudder I input, the more the heli try's to "weathervain" in the opposite direction. This is not a consistant problem where it will always happen. A good example of what is going on is if I am hovering and try a full power climb, the gyro acts as though it either can't keep up or the tailrotor does not have enough strength to counteract the torque.
No belt slippage or drive slippage, all checks out ok. This problem just may not be a problem but rather a limit of the tailrotor and I am just beginning to notice it now that I have become more proficient with flying the Heli towards its limits.
Even more strange the T-Rex heli model on my reflex sim does the same thing.
