I think it's ~possible~ for a tail motor to work well on a heli that size. If the 130 S tail is weak, that's on Blade for using under-powered components. I'm running 125mm blades on my mCPX which is pretty close to the 130 S at 135mm. The tail on mine seems to have plenty of holding power. Even so a motored tail is a trade-off in performance. Better to have a driven tail, but for a small heli you can get away with a motor and it's a lot lower maintenance.
