[QUOTE=Dr.M;22391766]I haven't heard of any updates on the TG-1, but the symptoms you describe are very likely caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). I'd suggest you ground your tail shaft to the boom and the boom to the motor mount to prevent ESD. Use a multimeter to verify there is electrical continuity between your tail shaft and motor mount.

Thanks for the input,

I have the boom (aluminum) grounded. The rest of the tail assembly is all metal but I'll check for continuity from the tail shaft tonight and let you know. I even went as far as grounding the main shaft through a bearing but the issue still occurs. I'm a bit scared to fly this thing. Heli parts and soiled underwear are replaceable but the aftermath of rotorbaldes and flesh is pretty ugly!
