I am having a problem with the tail spinning out of control. I purchased the heli from a friend and it worked finr for the first two flights. On the second flight it started to spin uncontrolled. I replaced the tail motor. It held for about 30 seconds and now it is spinning again out of control. The tail rotor does spin when blown upon. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks all

RC anything, its all good.

make sure there is nothing stuck in the tail gear or any hair wrapped in the bearings. you may also have a defective from stock tail motor.

you also want to check your tail motor wires, and make sure that it is seated securely in the rx

I checked all the above and it still spins. The only thing i have not done is replace the motor again. This motor has under 2 mins on it. Has anyone had problems with the ESC for the tail or the gyro.

Thanks

It was the two little pins that are on the tail blade that engage the tail drive gear. They had come out even though there was a small piece of tygon to hold it.
