Has anyone found a good inexpensive tail rotor that can easily be swapped out for the factory one that can give this copter any forward or reverse motion?
I have only flown mine a few times but once its in the air it doesn't seem to want to move forward or back at all.
I tried digging through the thread for these details but its monstrous and I wasn't able to find much detail - just lots of mentions of these two mods.
I dropped this idea
But there is another one. You can cut 50 mm from your old rotor blades and stick it to your tale blade. Ppl say it works, and I will definitly try it, as soon as I get my new rotor blades.
Blade flip is easy. Just turn your lower main blades upside down. It will give you a little bit more space between your lower and upper blades. I dont know if your heli will fly better, but there is much less possibility of blades crashing
The other thing is, I'm wondering, which batterie can I buy, that wont change my helis flying ability, but will give me something more than 8-10 mins?
