Hey everyone, after a recent crash I am having some issues. Main shaft, feathering spindle, flybar, main gear, double link, and blades needed to be replaced. I go spool up the helicopter and it just spins and spins, blades are balanced, tried with two different sets. I go down and lie on the floor to look and it looks like as the blades are spooled up slowly they are tilted to the front. I can not get the helicopter to lift off, it will just spin, is there something I assembled wrong or is there a piece that I broke that needs to be replaced?
Thanks

Is the main shaft spinning or are the blades spinning as well? Spin the blades by hand, do the tail blades spin as well?

you probably have to go thru and reset your blade pitch ... did you plug your sevos in round the wrong way,ie.aileron into pitch n vice versa... did you break your mixing arms does the swash plate go down when u advance the throttle... ps unplug the motor wires wen u gin around with the head..

I have gone through almost everything and it still instantly starts to spin, as soon as I apply half stick. Could it be my gyro? I am using a 401. Pitch is good, none of that got messed up. Bird just spins round and round

Odd problem for a crash that had mostly head damage, but it sounds like you are having a tail issue. If you have gone through your head and everything was rebuilt right, and your TX settings are all good, then a few things you might want to check are: Is your gyro reversed. Could the switch been moved in the crash? Did you change the orientation of your gyro? Are your tail blades on correct and spinning in the proper direction. Is the belt rotating in the right direction. Is your tail servo operating in the proper direction? Just some suggestions. Good Luck.
