Can anyone help me set up a friends Heli Max?

Here is the link to the model I have:
http://manuals.hobbico.com/hmx/hmxe01-manual.pdf

One problem is that I can't find where it says how to adjust the tail rotor mix or the gain. When I reach a point of almost lifting off the skids the motor shuts off and also the heli pulls to the left, even with full trim adjusted to the right and the cyclic moved to the right.

Having my heli: Cool, Having a working heli: Awesome, Having a day to fly: PRICELESS!

I have the Axe 400 but mine does that when the battery is too low. I would try a different battery.

I flew mine until it fell out of the sky, then when I would try and spool up again it would get up too speed then just complete cut out.

Hey Hillbilly!! I noticed in your other post that you mentioned this was your first electric. Is this your first experience using Li-po batteries?? I'm asking because I noticed where you flew it to the point it fell out of the sky. Li-po packs are very sensitive to full discharge, for maximum life (number of times you can charge them AND make good power) you should try to limit the amount of power you use to approximately 70%-80% of it's capacity. Please forgive me if I'm re-hashing stuff you already know. I just hate to see anyone blast an expensive pack from not knowing (I almost did the same long ago. . I got lucky) Anyway, get a charger, or charge it on someones charger that tells you how many milliamps it put back in, that number should be roughly 70 to 80 percent of the total capacity. if a 1000mah pack you should put int 700 to 800 milliamps. Vary your flight times to where you always fall in that range, and your pack will stay happy. It's a good habit to get into, as the helis get bigger, so do the packs and expense. Currently my bird has $500 in packs in the air per flight. . . if I killed one. . . I'd be sick to say the least. Good luck!! =) Ohh yeah. . . don't store them fully charged. . . do a "short" flight to try and bring it to around 50% capacity for long term (more than 1 to 2 days) storage.
