I just felt compelled to post that the Eflite Blade CP Pro2 with a Eflite UH-1 Huey scale body didn't fly right out of the box. I guess that's what I get for buying something use sight unseen. The tail rotor motor didn't work and nobody around here knows how to fix it since this heli is obsolete.

Where did you get the impression the CP Pro is obsolete? The Huey body is a fairly new item and Horizon still shows the CP Pro2 RTF on their website, unless you are talking about a different CP pro.

Unfortunately, your problem is not uncommon with the Blade CP's, some are good, some are bad. I myself have not had good experience with the Blade CP's (seen to many flying buddies having problems with theirs). I just got a Blade SR which so far is doing great. It was an impulse buy and so far I don't regret it.

Is it just the tail, or are there other problems?

Based on my experience, you might check to make sure both wires going to the tail motor are still connected to the motor and board. If you are comfortable with electronics, you might unsolder one of the tail motor wires and test the motor using 1 or 2 AA batteries to see if it is even functioning.

If that doesn't work, contact Horizon Hobbies? Maybe they can help you diagnose the tail problem.

Good luck, hopefully you can this thing sorted out.

choppertopper,
You need to leave feedback under the users name, that way other people can see what your experiance was before they deal with him in the future.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I just didn't think this item was obselete. There may be hope for this one if it is not obselete.

Some CP pro problems can be fixed rather inexpensively while others aren't so inexpensive if the boards are bad, but Horizon may be willing to work with him.
