Bad motor or 5 in1?

I have a x 350 and after a wall strike, motor B [upper blades]did not work. I flopped the plugs and motor B wouldn't work. So I ordered 2 new motors and only replaced motor B. Upon power up the upper blade started spinning full speed. I unplugged and shut off transmitter. Even without transmitter the upper blade spun at full speed. So I guess the question is ; is it the 5 in 1 or what? Can the 5 in 1 be reset?

s107g to x350 is a very big jump. Remember to be very gentle with the sticks. Good luck.

LOVE this helicopter! Gentle on the sticks, flies great! Great 1st copter for me!!

Questions: what lipos are everyone using? where do you buy them? The stock 850 sux, not long enough, and $43 for another one is waaaay too expensive! Also, what other canopies fit good? I read earlier the blade 400?

Thanks!

Check with H&H hobbies. He is a frequent poster here and carries non OEM batteries for the x350.

K, Thanx. Also I have been having a little problem. I did the long shaft hop up, and the lower rotor mounts that screws into the outer shaft doesn't hold position on the little holes. (sorry if my terminology is bad, I am a newbie) Are those screws supposed to screw into the outer shaft? doesn't seem like it. If I had to guess, it is just to locate the screws, but they aren't able to be tight enough. Essentially, what happens is the bottom rotor doesn't spin, and I get no lift. Suggestions?

Make sure the screws meet the flat part of the shaft. If they don't you will face the described problem unless motor B is dead. I had twice this problem with motor B before going BL.

I think they are in the "flat" (it's more a hole, than flat) At first I thought it screwed into it, but never tightened. What I think might be happening is that the plastic has stripped, and the screw backs out with vibration. Think I need a new Lower Rotor Spindle. I tried "Lock Tight" on the screw, but that didn't help.

Look at the attached pic. There is no hole, and I do not follow "that the plastic has stripped". Which plastic are you referring to?
