Howdy all,
Firstly I absolutely love my g6 -- well up until a week ago lol

Im at the stage where its time to start flipping er in the gym so I got the hotrod WOW black inrunner (more grunt oh oh oh oh lol) and had to replace the tail slider (pin broke off) -- decided while I was there I would swap out the split tail roto grips also -- Ok all caught up -- keeping in mind this thing flew utterly perfect before.

Got er all spinning up and all seems cool -- flew for about 15 - 20 seconds -- the tail just would start spinning wildly and no control input would change it -- slow maybe but not stop it. Flew great for the first 15 -- so I tried it again after 1/2 hour -- same deal -- so Im thinking the new motor is just sucking the bejesus out of the batts and ele system. Went back to the stock motor and same deal -- maybe 20 or 30 secs flies nice then the tail just blows out and spins. Now she wont even lift off as the tail just spins.

I have mad sure the tail servo is 90, tail slider is in the center of its travel(equal throws), both tail grips are "leading edge" , main and tail blades spinning correct direction, (clockwise and up into the blade wash), new tail blades, 4 different batteries, no stripped gears, rx unit secure -- little to no vibration.

Sorry for the long winded post but I really do like and want my 4G6 back hehehe I tried to be as clear and informitive as possible.

thanks for any responses,
Markus

Hi Markus
sounds like something is slipping , i remember that pinions would act that way , hold for a few seconds and then start slipping , and get worse and worse

can you hold the head still and twist the tail in either direction

when the heli is powered on , but not running , does the servo act like the gyro works , when you swing the tail by hand

it could be a bad tail servo , i had a tail servo go and it would work for a bit and then slam to one side , all on its own

just tossing in ideas

Well hovering around inside with a 8' ceiling, its fixed hehehe -- I can tell its all better -- it was a combination of both the TT rod and the front drive gear were both rounded off. Super tuff to tell as I said I already applied some pressure and tried seemed fine -- oh well always something dumb hehehe

Markus

Irondequoit isnt that far -- 1:40 or so -- maybe a nice lazy saturday flying with some NY pilots -- trying to put one together or atleast a list of fairly local folks :0)
