Default Main Rotor Motor Cutting out

I'm not sure if i turned one of the pot screws to far one way or another, but now I have to slowing increase my collective to get the main motor to turn the head, IF I increase the collective past 3/4 or increase to fast, the motor cuts out completely.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong? Is it the motor, the electronics or something else

BTW, I have this problem with old and new batteries.

Thanks,

Jon

I assume you have a 4#3B? Is it brushed or brushless?

How is the mesh between the motor pinion and the main gear?

From his signature it looks like he's talking about a 4G3....
