Question 230S Rotates after crash

My heli caught some tall grass and crashed fairly violently. A visual check indicates everything is fine however when it spools up the entire heli rotates on the main shaft, no tail hold at all. Tail motor is rotating. What have I done???

What "all" did you have to work on after the crash?

Make sure you didn't wind up some grass around the tail rotor shaft. That could prevent it from performing correctly.

I really didn't need to repair anything. It was a violent crash but the grass must have cushioned the blow. I checked the swash, it's level, blades are good, no adjustment needed, boom is straight, frame isn't cracked, main shaft appears to be straight, no abnormal vibrations. Rotor spins (can't tell you the RPM). During spin up it begins to immediately rotate counter-clockwise. Last night I did remove the tail thinking maybe I had a bad tail rotor wire but they all look good. The programming didn't change. I'm thinking it has to be mechanical.

Check that all wires all secured and plugged in all the way.

Any frayed wiring you see?

If it was a violent crash, what all broke?

If that all looks good, then probably something wrong with the tail motor.

Or grass as jack suggests.
