So i changed the tail section, plugged in the batteries, and powered it up. The heli started spinning uncontrollably, it seems the tail motor wasn't spinning. So powered it down while i tried to figure out what was going on.

Then all of a sudden thick smoke started coming out of the canopy and it was lighting up. The thing actually caught fire!

Aw come on!!! Seriously??? Can anybody explain what happened? What was the part that burned up???
It's impossible to put magic smoke back into those things!
