When I first got my mcp-x v2 I never had an issue with yaw when I punched the power in. Now all of a sudden I have an issue. Any suggestions? I don't know what could be causing it. If its a fresh battery and I apply full power I get almost a 180 degree yaw!

Try the KBDD tail rotor blades they have more pitch than the stock. It helped on mine.

I will look into that but I shouldn't be having this problem with the stock tail rotor. There has to be an issue with the motor or the blades. I am going to change the TR blades and see if that helps.

I just had the same problem. Went with the KBDD blades and it is the best it has ever been.

Try the 300ma battery packs, they are stiffer voltage source than the stock 250 battery. A larger capacity pack cleared up many of the quirks and losing the tail was one of them.

fwiw...

Squirrel has it...The packs make a big difference in how well the tail holds...As my packs start to go, first sign is usually the tail getting (more) squirrely... (No pun intended...)

I would get the hyperion 250's. I wish i new how many flights i had on these. It could be your tail motor also.

i had the same issue. make sure your main gear is not rotating on the shaft and is fully seated. you also may need to change your pitch curves to lessen your max pitch.

why can't it be something as simple as having a main blade too tight or too loose?

and that little brass gear might, as others have stated, moved on the shaft creating excessive play.

i think you were right, it was the main gear and shaft, they need to be changed.
