I installed a new Spin 8000kV motor in my 130x. On the first spool-up the heli went into a uncontrollable spin on the ground. After checking out all I could see, I found that the tail servo was not functioning. I performed a re-bind to my Spektrum DX8 and tried it again and found that none of the servos functioned this time. A young friend of mine from the LHS at the field looked at it and saw that the metal "A" gear was rubbing on the elevator servo board. We repositioned the board and still no servo response from any of them. Binding and motor do function, and I am able to get into the gain adjustment program. I fear that the gear may have shorted out and fried all the electronics. Can this happen? Before I invest in a new 3 in 1 (ouch) and/or servos, I wanted to post this to see if anyone may have a opinion or some sort of idea that may help me. Thanks for the help in advance.

Remove the elevator servo and see what happens. If no response remove all servos and plug in a known good servo and see what happens.

I put some packing tape between my front elevator servo and the A gear. Front servo has been fine. I agree about trying the heli with that servo unplugged to see if it'll initialize.
