Like My Blade 120, Tail Rotor Issue, Fixed

I bought a Blade 120 the other day, and really like it. One thing that happened is that the tail rotor popped off in a "hard landing," and after that the heli would just spin round and round (counter-clockwise) and the tail rotor would often pop off again.

I realized the tail rotor was a little loose, so I inserted a piece of thread into the hole in the rotor blade, re-installed the rotor blade, snipped off the thread, and now it works great again!

Cool! it is great when a simple fix works. I'll have to keep that in mind with mine.

My last tail rotor broke a blade off mid air, and that made for an exciting landing Of course, that was after about 100 flights.
