CX2 spinning clockwise no matter what I do?

Changed out the lower head/hub on my CX2 and now whether I give it left or right YAW/left stick it just spins fast clockwise? If I let the stick go to neutral the spin slows down. Left or right stick, and throttle, it spins fast clockwise.

It sounds like one of your gears is slipping on the shaft. Check the B gear, and make sure it is fitting tight on the inner shaft. Also, make sure both motor pinions are making proper contact with both gears.

Could be your motor wires have gotten switched around going to the control unit.

Found a loose screw on the lower gear. After tightening it up the problem was gone.

Thanks

Just make sure you hit the flat spot with the screw. Otherwise you'll run into the same problem in short order.

BTW, here is the "official" CX2 thread. You may want to put this in your subscriptions for further use.
