I had slight incidend with my 3D-Pro when I tried to a loop just a little to low. I was pretty level when it hit and only broke the Landing gear, and a tail blade grip.
I got it all back together and now it dosent have the power it did. The climb outs arnt at all what they used to be. I have played with the throttle curves and pitch curves in normal mode and still nothing. Also I have not changed the idle up curves so they are the same as before and still no climb out. Any ideas of what could be causing this??

Check your pitch range again. The spindle could be jacked up if you went in under power.

Check your gear mesh.

And check your headspeed while you're at it. Mine's F# (find a piano) with the recommended brushless motor. This is about 2,775 rpm.

Listen near the tip of the blades with zero pitch (be careful !!!)

I went though and made sure everthing was ballanced and now it seems to be doing just fine, thanks for the ideas.
