Raptor 50 - GY401 not holding
Raptor 50 v2 with Spektrum Rx. I had a minor crash little while back, needed new boom and some head work. I did the work and tried binding to my Futaba 9chp (with Spektrum Module) flew ok with some vibrations.

I tried again later on my JR 9303 and I cant for the life of me get the tail to hold. I have reprogramed the tx a few times, swapped out the gy401 and s9254 for another set but it still wont hold. I checked the setting on the Tx - they are the same as my other Raptors with the same electronics but I still cant get it to hold ???

What am I missing ? the tail stay steady until its ready to lift off - then it just goes crazy spinning around ?

wow thanks for the quick responses all.

Yeah I tried all that (I have 6 raptors - most have Gy401's and I have had to set them up many times)

you got the belt twisted the wrong way making the tale spin backwards. Maybe you have the tail blades on backwards.  ▲

The 401 has to be initialized in HH mode. Other wise you will be in rate mode with a flashing red light.

Also inspect the wires, connectors, and pins. Make sure they didn't get cut or damsged in the crash.

Did the pin to the rear cog wheel fall out letting it slip on the tail shaft?Heli-itis sufferer.
