Have you replaced the tail motor wire completely? Are you sure you have a good plug connection on the motor wire and board? I tinned the prongs on mine because it pulled out easily, worth checking if you haven't already.

I run 67 on pitch to help prevent blowouts. Still plenty of lift when I need it. Set via testing since day one.

I had a similar problem, come to find out the tail rotor connection plug had backed out enough that the connection was being fully made. I am not sure if this applies in your case but maybe there is another T/R wiring issue. I wish you luck.

Funny, I usually fly a 12 battery rotation.. My 200's all began to die at once..
I would take off, punch it and the bird would fall out of the sky... Okay, tray again...
Same thing... hmmmm.. maybe its a battery???? add new batter. takeoff. punch it and again it fell out fo the sky.. dammit...!

After about four differnt cells all doing the same thing.. I tried a new 300 nano and all of a sudden!!!! ZEN!!!!

so.. yeah..

Good luck Napoleon.. I hope you find the truoble..

My other suggestion would be to COMPLETELY dismantle the bird.. check ALL the parts that you can.. This is a great way to inspect for hidden damage that might be the culprit.. and as well it offers peace of mind because you now know what is what...

again Good luck!

I'm going to try some different batteries this weekend, hopefully that does it.

Drop your pitch settings to between 66 and 70. The heli will still fly great, and you'll get less blow out.

I don't think it will really solve all your problems but it will help.

On the Batteries Bigger iz Better, those 300's kick booty, but might mask the problem...with some interesting (read: sucky) results. Good luck.

+1 on the mainboard/tail rotor plug backing out. Been there crashed that.

Do you have an extended tail boom and useing the V2 tail rotor? If not extend your boom to 140mm and try a V2 tail rotor not the KBDD they dont work as well
