Tail rotor blade

Anyone tried the blade swap for the SO33G with a E-flite (EFLH 1122) ? Larger, no cutting , no taping, no glueing. Use a #2 x 1/2 inch button head screw to attach it with.

Hello all. My wife bought me one of these for christmas (it was an early christmas, I found it last weekend). I loved it for a couple of days, then started wanting more! I tried the double tail rotor, but honestly didn't see too much of an improvment. So I started toying with it and here's what I've come up with.
- upgraded tail motor to a bigger motor out of another chopper I have, left the dual rotors
-lost one set of the flybar weight
-wired in a connector so I can use it with my iMax B6 balance charger (40 minutes tops charging time now)

Flys like a bat outta hell now, completely different bird. More than capable of light winds also. Ill upload a video when I get a chance.

I'm new to the board and wanted to say Thank You! I just did the tail mod and added some weight to the front. This thing flys 100% better now, you sir are a genius.

making it go forward

I think you guys are barking up the wrong tree; by adding an extra tail rotor, you make the ship more tail heavy (!) and that small motor has to work much harder. Plus it doesn't really work all that well.
What I did, was to take both tail fins off, they are just decoration anyway. This lightens the tail. Next, I shifted the centre of gravity further forward but sticking a lump of Bluetack to the nose. In addition, I refined the tail rotor a little by sanding the blades (carefully) to an approximate airfoil shape. The whole thing worked a treat, first time up!

Just wanted to post the mods I have done to my Syma s033g. I have the v2 s033g with the 1500mAh 2S battery.

1) Added weight to the nose (now weigthed forward instead of backward)
2) Changed the battery connectors to Deans plugs.
3) Got a second battery (1700mAh 5C change capable) - Already had a balancing charger.
4) Added a second tail blade (6x4) propeller (used a spacer and a rubber band to mount. Could mount a larger one if required).
5) Changed the TX to Mode 2 by moving the rudder control to the left stick (no soldering required). Now left stick is throttle and rudder and right is just pitch control.

As a result:
- 8+ min fly time. 30 min recharge time.
- Can fly into a 5mph (7.5kph) breeze (have not tried stronger yet).
- Controls are the same as all my other helis (minus the roll control). I have 4ch and 6ch helis I also fly.

It's fun to fly, but does not get as much air time as my other helis. Worked on this till it was at a "fun to fly" status as it was my first heli.

Tail rotor alternative

So I just bought an APC 4.1 X 4.1prop every hobby store sells them for about $2.19 I put the smaller of the two adapters in that they come with, then drilled it out just enough that I could slip it over the tail rotor shaft real tight. You won't even need a screw. I'll add a photo. Cheers

11.1v Battery?

Hi all,
First time poster and new to RC helis. Great forum.

I received the S033G about a month ago and swopped out the 7.4v battery with an LiPo 3S 11.1v 25C and could not get the heli of the ground.
It cuts out as soon as it starts lifting.

How much success have you had with similar batteries? Can you think of anything that can cause this?
If I put the 7.4v battery back, it flies without any issues.

Thanks
