Hi guys, after a crash, I have problems with piroueting. I have Logictech 2100 gyro and 9257 tail servo.
When the heli is hovering I can do cloclwise and anticlockwise pirouettes with no problems.
However when I am flying forward I cant do complete anticlockwise pirouetes.
I can only do a half pirouete and then the tail locks in one point without completing the pirouete.
The same happens when I practice in stall turns doing double pirouetes. I cant complete an anticlockwise stall turn with double pirouete. The tail again locks!
ANy ideas?
Thanks!

WOW, that's scary!

This lock out, how long does it last, just a split second, and then your able to command it again, or is it locking out for a period of time?

Since you have noticed these issues, have you tore down the rudder/gyro set up, and re-did it yet? You might find this just might help?

The only thing I could even think of, as for locking out is either a trim issue, or voltage issue. But then again, Im new at all this stuff, so take this with a grain of salt..

Good luck, and keep posted..

Nice idea! I replaced the gear of my tail servo. I will tear it apart to see if there are any broken parts.

Fenderstrat, that was my first thought as well but when he said it piroed fine at hover that really threw me off. Perhaps under load that tooth may be just chipped or bent (plastic Karbonite) enough the teeth skip but without load they push through???

I'll be curious to hear what is discovered on this???

I have had rudder/gyro issues in the past, and when it all boiled down to it, the problem was improper installation.(ask fender, as he will vouge) Hope this fixes your problem to.
