Hey guys.. i'm not a beginner to RC but however sort of a beginner to Helis.

I picked up a CP2 (used but very good price) with a parts Century Hummingbird. After trying to get the CP2 in the air I got fed up with the crappy tail rotor setup. I could never get it tuned properly.

The Hummingbird had a ducted fan system on the rear.. i was like hmmm should i? So I did.. took the Ducted fan system (GWS EDF-40) and put it on the CP2.

Welllllll let's just say the tail is out of control!! Anything I do on the 4-in-1 with the settings doesn't do anything.. even if I reverse polarity and try the motor the other way it still is out of control.

I took a look at bladecprepair.com and saw the 4-in-1 may be defective? could this be so or am I doing something wrong?

Step by step: On power up from no throttle.. tail rotor starts first then main blades.. increase throttle and more tail rotor which is too much for the main blades and is un-balanced and more throttle and the thing is break dancing on the floor.

Any help is great!

Motor driven tail rotor helis are extremely hard to learn on. If you are serious about learning to fly a heli, get something with a belt driven tail and as a general rule, the larger the heli the easier it is to fly. A Belt-CP would be a great place to start.

Your tail rotor is starting too soon, by the time your main blades start spining your tail rotor is turning that much faster. You can adjust the speed of your tailrotor on your 4-n-1. Look at your instruction booklet and it will tell you how. If you don't have one then find an online that sells that heli and you can probably download a manual. But your tail rotor doesn't need to be starting first, it should start spining after your main blades!
