I have had this SR for about a month, and have it set up on a DX7. It is setup up for HH at 70% on Gyro. It has been a good learning tool for hovering (been at least 30 4 1/2 min. hovers). Out of the box I needed to re-solder the positive wire back to the tail motor.
Yesterday I was just hovering and lost tail control. the motor is still running but when I give left rudder stick the tail fin just stops and the heli has no tail control. I have checked all conections and settings, have had no crashes at all with this heli or hard landings. It has not been flown yet, just hovered. I think the motor is just shot, but as luck would have it everywhere I have checked so far they have been sold out of this tail motor. So I figured I would see if anyone else has run into this problem or maybe I am just missing something very simple as a fix.

Eflite had a bad run of tail motors initially i think. Contact HH and see if they have one they can send you under warranty. There was alot of crying about the tail motor failing early on,so alot of folks told HH theirs went bad to have an extra. Mine went in the first 2 weeks and HH got one to me in 2 days. Hopefully there are some left and all of the dishonesty and greed over the motors Got over 50 flights with no trouble now.
