On my 30 I can hold the tail and spin the rotor head clockwise. My 50 I cant do that, is one set up wrong or is this how they are? I never noticed this before. Thanks for the replys.

its got a autorotation hub on it, which will in an auto give you tail control, and wont allow the tail to spin freely, this becomes clear when the jesus bolt goes through the pully and mainshaft...

It has an autorotation hub in it.

The difference is in the 30 with the red gear it doesn't drive the tail rotor during an auto.

The 50 with the white gear drives the tail rotor during an auto, its because the 50 has heavier blades so it has more interia in the rotor system and you can drive the tail w/o a significant penalty.

But they are working as advertised.

thanks for the reply. I thought I was having problems with the 50. The motor stopped about 20 feet up, and I tryed to auto but when I flaired it hardly had any effect. Came down kinda hard, but no damage. whats the best pitch curve for autos? Thanks
