Had a dumb thumbs crash and did repairs. Prior to crash tail motor was heating up to point it was just about not possible to touch it with finger for more than a couple of seconds. I replaced the tail motor with a new one but this one is also heating up badly.
After crash, the tail won't hold. At the start of the video the heli was pirouetting on take off but then managed to hold it. As you will see in the video, frequently the heli starts to yaw left, the tail speeds up and holds it, only to have the same thing happen within a few seconds. I am for the most part not using rudder to correct these blips. They happen and then stop.
Also, fully charged batteries formerly 8 minutes of flight time, are now about 3-4 minutes, The heli requires nearly full throttle to even take off. It certainly won't accelerate upward any near what it used to do.
ESC? RX? main motor? bad new tail motor? Should have hired a competent pilot?
