Are you running the idler pulley in the tail box? I think you are saying the tail slowed but not the main blades? If so, your belt probably got hung up. If you are running the idler puley on top of the tail case, this can happen sometimes when the belt slips off and wedges itself between the case and pulley. Most people remove the pulley to avoid this problem, the Trex doesn't need it.

Was this when you were trying an auto you have been asking about?

There is a basic test you always should do before you fly. Hold the tail blades and turn the main blades with a light/medium amount of force. If it the main blades turn but the tail blades can be held there's a problem. If you are having tail issues this is always the first test you do as well.

The belt can jump the cogs if it is too loose.
The cog can slip on its shaft such as the tail shaft cog.
The little gear inside the frame can be misaligned from it's drive gear. (Usually because you didn't set your collar shaft on your main shaft correctly.)
The little gear or the cog can slip on their shaft inside the frame. (Hate changing this one.)

Because it takes so little force to turn your tail blades you should really be able to track this one down quickly. By your description they stopped this tells me your problem should be easy to find.

Keep us posted...

Check to see if the tail shaft gear is stripped.

Can you explain this again VDFS? Do you mean that the tail pulley rotates on the tail shaft?

Thanks

Tom

You should be able to put some r48 on the tail shaft ( green loctite) and then you could keep that "cog" down on the shaft for good, or even better use some red Loctite, or even better buy a new shaft
