Default Well 2nd flight and first problem....

Was hovering around when all of a sudden the tail starts spinning out of control from 30ft up. Hit TH real quick but it still managed to dive bomb into the deck railing. Nothing damaged though.

Upon further inspection the tail servo wasn't working. Found the negative wire just came off the servo board. A quick solder job later and I was back in business.

Glad to hear it survived the crash!

Same thing happened to me on my first flight. Black tail servo wire disconnected at the servo board solder point.

Thought it was just me. Lost the positive lead from the board.

I had the same experience. White wire broken at the solder point. The black wire was hanging by one strand. It had been bent backward at 180 degrees! Bound to fail. Resoldered and repaired tail damage and all is good.

Default Tail Servo solder wire, come off from board

Also I have had same problem. Fortunately that issue come in on the ground, while hover.
Wires were solder with the sheath that come off the board and any little touch could get them off.
Now is all ok.
