Ok got a chance to fly it tonight,I turned the tail gain up to 90%,no tail wag,head speed 2400 idle up 2,the tail was solid,went into idle up 1,2300 head speed,on the 3rd tic toc the tail swung outwhy is this happening,Im thinking its loosing head speed in idle up 1,gov gain set to medium.

Any chance of a video of this occurrence? I think it's the only way to determine what the problem is.60% of the time, it works every time!

I got word back from a few guys,they replied they has seen it before on the Dominator 550l,its because the head speed is to low for that heli and the Gov cant control it,at competitions they fly them at 2400 and much higher,so it looks like anything below 2400 for 3d is not a match,I find it strange though.

you still are using stock tail blades? most 3d'rs would have gone with another manufacturer by now. It's tt so no sped up tail options afaik.

I can't say much about the gov option, 95 gain on the tail and about 6 on the bx tail control pot should hold it pretty good if it isn't bouncing, and try a little more on the pot if you want faster stick reaction and return to center.

From the sounds of your experience your a well seasoned 3d'r, you'll work it out, (ya, change the tail blades to rail or switch or something well known for 3d other than stock).

If the 550l had a tri tail or sped up option, but yea, I would have thought 2400 was at the low end so it's a bit of a problem if the tail can't be sped up. My solution would have been to go with shorter mains and longer tail blades for low rpm. I think they run the 55l at 2700 to 2900rpm stock for 3d if I'm not mistaken. Makes the 550l nogo for low rpm 3d huh.

What is the tail ratio and tail blade length?

1:3.85 which is the problem and it was the same problem with the original 600e Pro.

If the 700 auto rotation tail gear and torque tube drive gear will fit then that is the answer, they give 1:4.37 ratio.

Actually you might have better look with the Trex 600n autorotation tail gear and torque tube drive gears as they say it will fit 550e. That would give 4.5 ratio and you'd probably be able to run down to 2000 rpm. The governor might not like it that low though and in that case switching to a larger 5s pack like a 5s 6000 would work a treat and would give you about 30% more flight time! 60% of the time, it works every time!

I dont think tail blades would make a difference,its the low head speed that blows the tail out,this heli was designed for hard 3d thats what I am told,not sure if setting the governor gain to HIGH mode would change anything,thats the whole purpose of a governor,why cant it be like a nitro machine with a gov and do its job.

just throwing ideas out trying to be helpful and seeing if any fit.

Richardmid1's suggestion is probably the best option for lowered rpm.

Nitro? Electric? electric's always higher rpm and it appears gearing reflects that.

Longer tail blades do make a difference, the longer they are the more thrust the tail will have. You just have to be careful about them hitting the mains. You could use 520mm mains and use 95mm tails, that is another option.

About the governor gain, if anything you want to lower the governor gain so it's not kicking the power in and out so aggressively.

There are lots of options to eliminate this problem but I still find it strange that you are having blow outs at 2300 doing simple tic tocs. I'm almost certain that something isn't setup right. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK that the gain you are adjusting in your TX is actually working i.e. on the correct channel etc.

After reading the posts, have you done some throttle pumps? Hover it and then go full throttle vertical. Does your tail blow out? Typically I would say tail gain is just a number, but 90 is awful high and sounds like you have other issues. On my heli's, when I do a throttle pump, the tail holds perfect. That translates into other maneuvers.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

When you're stuck with the gear ratio you have with the configuration of that model and without upgrades or changes, you're left with gain and tail blade length to hold the tail. After ruling all else out like an error in gyro set up, I would increase to at least 100mm tail blades and see how that works. DO try some strong but not absurdly aggressive climb out and look for tail yaw. If gain is appropriate and the nose still yaws hard left, then you have to add more tail blade and/or go out a hole or two on the tail servo arm.

Which boom and blades are you running? Ihave a buddy that has a 550, and it came with a 600 boom, and with 550 blades.

He is not a hard 3d (actually no 3d), but his setup with the 600 blades, 95 tails works fine for what he is running.

The heli was designed to work. Often problems stem from set up. I had a tail blow out problem on my 700 when I got it. A minor change to the ESC fixed that problem and it has been perfect ever since.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

Yep a 600 boom and TT with 95 tails would also solve the problem.60% of the time, it works every time!

I will triple check the tail set up again,would be good if somebody with the same heli would confirm it does the same 2300 head speed,flying around doing circuits scale flying is good on 2300 head speed thats when the problem does not show up,in theory as the heli is now it should perform 100%,should not have to change anything,but as Richard said it would most probably solve the problem by using longer tail blades.

95mm tails will hit the mains unless you either use 520mm mains or the 600 boom and tt. The 600n tail drive gears I mentioned is your best and cheapest option.60% of the time, it works every time!

+1 for Ronald Thomas

For your stunt modes, try and set a "Flat" curve for E's. Start at about 65%-75% (65-65-65) or (75-75-75) and bump them up to fit your mechanics and personal preference. You can run up to 100& but I would recommend you allow some head room for your ESC compensate during flight. So I like to keep my around 85%-90%.

You can run a 3-point curve for normal mode; something like 0-65-65 is a generic place to start. I would also recommend using your ESC's gov mode if it has one.

This should stop your blowouts which seem to be caused by your motor torqueing over due to your V-Curves instead of applying consistent power which a flat curve will take care of for an E heli.

Good luck.
