Randall,
The Kokam 1020's are very marginal with the stock HB motor. When I first got my HB I thought they were OK, because my flights rarely lasted more than 30 seconds. When I was able to keep it up as long as I wanted, the Kokams seemed to get worse and worse. I didn't know if it was the batteries or the main motor going bad. I replaced the motor with a rewound cdrom brushless motor, and the same Kokams are flying it great now.

As for the tail rotor with the HLG200 if you hold the rudder stick full left, no power will go to the tail rotor. I always move the stick full left after a crash.
