Blade 450 3d tail rotor problem

A question from a relative newbie.
I've been flying my Blade 450 3d quite well with only 2 minor crashes caused by a failed servo & motor bearing (should check it over more carefully, so pilot error definitely on the first one ).
I replaced the motor and had completed 2x 7min flights. On the third flight I was doing low slow circuits when the tail started to spin, not really fast and violent but fast enough. I hit throttle hold and landed up right with just the stabiliser pulling out of its screw.
The tail still seems to be on solid and the servo works.
I'm not sure what it could be as everything seems to be fine.
Any ideas?
Cheers Andrew

Check your tail belt tension. If the tail belt is not tight then it will slip causing the tail to spin out.
