Hello all. I have a stock ep100 pro on a 2S 800 mah. I have the gyro upfront and the receiver below the tail block. I was flying around for a few minutes and just hovering there when the heli just went full in from forward pitch. It seemed like I didn't even have control of it. When I pulled back it did nothing. Upon inspection the rear servo was stuck all the way up. I forgot to look to see if the receiver was still connecting as I just wanted it unplugged (I know big mistake). Anyways, I did replug everything back in and it worked fine. Would a static charge cause this kind of a thing? I know some people have lubed their belt and moved the parts around, but I thought on 2S it wouldn't be that big of a problem. Any ideas? Thanks for your input.

Hydro.

I crashed my EP100 a few times. AR6100. Reset issues.

No trouble with my other helis, that's the pattern.

Certain belt drives. Freestyle is another problematic static generating design.

I sprayed the belt with pure silicone. That fixed it! Kel is what I use. Mark Ryder posted 3 good brands in the thread.

WD40 is what Spectrum said to use. It works. However, bad for the belt!

Are you using 2.4 gig?

MMike - Wow fast reply, thank you. Yes I do have a Dx7 and Ar6100 in the rear. I will grab some silicone spray and try that, I just hate to crash it again if there was something else I was missing. Do you also run your receive under the rear tail block or does it not really matter with this setup?

I moved it around. Didn't seem to help me.
I know a guy that grounded his boom and everything, didn't help.
It's the spray that fixed his, and mine too.
Spray it into the tail area. It's good for the belt anyway.

BTW I love my EP100.

Watch out for foam blades.
Mine snapped off in a hover in the house!!

Look up "blades snapped" for a pic of my fix.
