Thanks for the encouragement tutelar! I think I might have located the problem. I think it is the receiver (ar6100). I think it is the elevator channel. During my efforts to troubleshoot, I did replace the original rx with one that Horizon "repaired". They installed new antennas on it and I had not tested it. The first rx installed from the beginning for me is back on it now. The original symptom, early cutoff, could have been due to a binding tail rotor shaft and not a rx problem. As I was testing the heli with the original rx just a little while ago, the push-rod came off the tail at near full throttle (no main blades installed) and bent the tail rotor shaft. My plan now is to just get this bird working and then promptly take all the good stuff off it. I will put all components on a good airframe like a trex 450 or even a HDX 450. No more Belt CP for me. I've had enough.
