i have a ef gyro with h55 servo on the tail when i connect the battery i dont move the heli at all after 15 seconds i start to hover and sometimes i have to fight the rudder to control the tail it will lock the tail for 15 seconds then it lets go of the tail resulting in rotations of the heli to the right (nose) as soon as i land i give rudder inputs left and right then i try to hover again and the same thing happens i land it and i give left and right inputs on the rudder after that it hovers and locks the tail until the battery drains its weird that after 2 to 3 landings it locks the tail till the battery gets low im using align 11.1 lipo 2200mah
i have tried the bobs videos on servo creeping and it still doing it.

I agree with spy. Sounds like a gyro problem. I would go with the 401 combo for $200 you wont be sorry.

pick it up and shake it off...she'll fly again

i know that a 401 will be the best choice. but as of now i cant afford it so is this what happens with a cheap gyro cause basicly no one cant fly like this so is this normal hovering tail lock then it let goes.?

i use 401, and 611 on all my bird, but i also tried the Eflight G90 the cheap gyro before, it works good, but u will need a good servo, like 9650, or 9257 or JR3700. the is become a good gyro, it will do most 3D, and cheap.

Fly the way i want => IRON NUT
