Fast forward flight rudder turn to the right not happening...
Working with a Raptor 50 with a Hyper 50 motor, 600 V2 Carbon Fiber Blades, the helicopter is setup with a governor at a head speed of 1700. No binding in the rudder that can be detected on the ground. Does left and right pirouettes great. But if you do a fast forward flight and make a turn to the right it is like the tail just does not want to make the turn. We are using a GY401 gyro with matching servo. On the ground we can apply pressure to the servo to hold it back and it has great torque so that does not appear to be it.

Everything was working great until my son went to lift off and maybe not doing a good enough pre flight it appears the rudder ball link at the tail rudder may have popped off as the heli started a spin but he was fast enough to hit throttle hold and got it back down but it did strike the tail and broke the tail fin. Looking closely at the tail (fly bar) that holds the tail rotters on it appears it may have a very slight bend (new one is on the way) but still do not think that is enough to cause what is going on unless someone has additional feed back that states otherwise. I was just wondering if anyone else had any ideas so I can get an order in so we can repair and test theories for the weekend.

Before the tail incident all was okay. I replaced the carbon fiber tail rod and the ball link ends and ensured that all was free and non binding.

Thanks for any help on the matter.
