401 broken?
crashed my 401 and it will work on the ground if i move tail right slider goes left etc but as soon as i spool up it wants to do a constant drift no matter the direction no matter the gain setting tried from 60-100 wont wag just wont hold at all same heli setup worked perfect on the spartan i got is there any way to fix it or is it toast?

I'd say there is a chance you picked up a vibration in the crash. Every drifting problem I've encountered resulted from vibration. Are you sure your tailshaft, mainshaft are still perfectly straight. Maybe your spartan is just not as sensitive to vibration? Like you said, could be that the 401 sustained damage. Do you have another bird you can try the 401 on?Chris

I'm not saying this will fix your issue, but I always thought I have a vibration proof set up, but never really could get the 401 working 100% perfect, but it was good enough.

Since then, I have moved the gyro below, and inside the frames, and have since found the gyro works 100% correct now.

I can only blame vibrations at this point.........

Check your servo. Most of the crashes I've encountered had the servos go bad on me and miraculously, my gyros were okay.Ray Fernandez - GUAM

Good point Ray. The worst part is, they don't always completely fail right away. If you have an extra servo, give it a try or disasemble yours and inspect the gears.Chris
