My blade just recently started acting up - when I spook it up, it sputters until it gets to flying RPM, then becomes stable, but now I have to apply full throttle to just get it hover. Seems like its not getting the appropriate power from the ESC.
Its happening with all my batteries, so don't think its a battery issue - sounds like an ESC issue.
Anyone else have this problem - any solutions??

Maybe 40-50 flights - is that all these little guys can handle before you need a new motor?

I guess I should get a new motor and give that a try. Not much bucks!

Thanks,
Jeff

40 flights? That's bad! I got well over 1000. The motor was tired!
It is easy to change. Match mark the polarity. Take a knife and remove the rubber cement goop. Push it out while supporting what you can of the frame. When you push it in, slow down & stop, when the pinion hits the bull gear, no sweat there is a lot of flex, turn the gear to find the mesh. I find no need to use rubber cement (4 later)
Cut some strips of paper and feed them through the gears. This will help clean and establish nice mesh. I am sure E-flight will take care of you on this one. If it turns out it's the 5in1 call them back. Good luck Chris

The 5-1 board [speed controller] can be a problem if the power[throttle] is left on too long after a crash.

You need to cut the power[throttle] fully just as it crashes or just before.

Check to see if the blue light inside the cabin gets fairly dull at full throttle/starts blinking or power drops off quickly at full throttle[climb rate is slow].

Good Heli flying is throwing it at the ground and missing

It is a very good idea to set up for throttle hold, and get in the habit of using it. Use it instead of down stick. That, down stick reflex can cost with a cp. Yup, do a chicken dance, kill esc, buy 5in1. GOod Luck Chris

how is the tracking on the blades? I had a minor run in with the wall the other night and it looks like it bent one of the blades. I put in a fresh pack and tried it again and only got about 3 minutes of run time not to mention it was very hard to give it any power even at full stick. I ordered a set of blades. Hopefully that solves the issue.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

' Small' run in? Done plenty. It is nice to have fresh blades and feathering shims. If you order blades, you, may as well have E-flight send both blade grips and the kit that contains the shims. I understand folks are making the shims, me, I can just see them. But they make a difference.
I match marked my stuff day one. Strangely one blade grip survived a long time. Under close inspection the featering shaft wore a conical hole in it, with lots of play. All those
TME and toilt bowl things come from some were.

Take your old blades and just run your fingers up and down, kind of caress them, warm them up a bit and return them to shape. They may not be perfect, I'd save the new ones for a bit.

Tracking, I do like a bit of white paint on the ends, up and down.
Also, like the ends of the fly bar done up. The relationship, between the fly and main blades is telling.

If your crashing, like me, just beat it up. Because it will constantly be out of trim. (just fly against it) Lucky me, thoe, I have number two, which I try to keep nice, for an A:B. Good Luck Chris

I changed the main motor and that fixed the problem.
Thanks,
