Hello,
Today was my second attempt tto fly my hawk pro and as I throttled up I hear the engine rpm increase and a loud rattling started around the clutch area, the blades seemed to not spin with power. The blades spun but not with accordance the to the engine out put.. it seemed like something was not catching at high rpm. From zero to a quarter throttle it spun but higher than that it the blades lost power.
I'm a beginner and I tried to explained it as best to my abilitys. Thank you for any advice..

If you heard a rattling from the clutch area and things were not spinning your clutch may have a problem. I would start there.

Is this a new build or an older airframe. Clutches,liners and their bearings get loud and rattly when there going bad.

the cooling fan has a habit of coming loose,
be sure to use a crank lock to tighten down the clutch and use red loctite on the retaining nut and let sit overnight
