Your pitch curve needs to be reset. Acctualy it might be eaiser to do your reset in the 'throtle hold' pitch curve, that way you wont have to unplug your motor.
Actually doing it right now already have the motor unpluged. See what I come up with. Thanks kdean report back later.

OK. I don't know what the hell is wrong with my transmitter (2801) but I cannot get the travel adjust to work at all. Is there anything in the initial setup that I could have wrong? ????. That would cause that not to work? Anyhow here is what I've ended up with.. pitch curve is now back about the same 0 throttle L=36.5 -3deg pitch 50% throttle 52.5 +4deg pitch. Full throttle 64.5 +9deg pitch
So throttle. Curve = 36,43,52,58,64

Okay I change the main input settings on the 2801 . I inhibited gear auxiliary2. & auxiliary 3 . I got the sub trims to work on the pitch. Set them up for -9 and+9 with the throttle curve @ 0,25,50,75,100 then set the curve to reflect 0 -3 pitch 50 +2pitch and100 +9 pitch. Now the throttle curve looks a little more to what I think you would expect. 27.5-34.5-50.5-75.0-100.
Is that better?

I put her on the stand and the tail still won't hold above about 3/4 throttle or if I give it a little rudder , I just starts spinning like a top.
Any suggestions ???

The esc is getting hot. Could that cause it to cut off voltage to the tail esc?

Not sure but have you adjusted the pots on the RX ? mine just would spin around after installing new servos, had to lay with pots,and still have to trim in some right rudder to hold it .

The tail wont spin unless it needs to , its a counter rotation device, the way i understand it, you need to get that bird in the sky, off the ground! My tail only spins when it needs to also

I don't think you're going to get the tail to hold while the heli is on the stand. I certainly couldn't get mine to hold on the stand, but it holds fine the air. There are too many vibes when the heli is on the stand.

Pull off your main blades and then carefully spool the heli in your hand. When you rotate the heli with your hand counterclockwise, the tail should spool to counteract the motion. When you rotate the heli clockwise, the tail rotor should stop. Next, carefully verify that rudder stick is working. When you rudder stick right, the tail should spool (carefully while holding the heli, there's quite a bit of torque). When you rudder stick left, the tail should drop RPM.

Once this is all correct, install the main blades. Go to a wide open area and start trying to hover. This really is all that you can effectively do.

Been a while flying this guy but she went down. Motor died not sure why, the tail spun weird and then motor went out.

I got it to hold on the stand before I crashed it. But now it's probably setup a little different. Probably just take it to the field tomorrow and play with-it.

Hi,
sometimes dreams come true, Thx to rchobbygear it will be the perfect solution to solve the V400 rudder tail problems, and specially on my HK450 TT V2 Pro with V400 tail (Rx 2614v) so this way can use back original torque tail. Hiiiihaaaaa!!!

rubber heli skills
I know what you are saying. I have a 450 pro with brushless motors and the 2614RX and after 50 flights so far have had no issues and fly's perfect every time. Its my favorite bird.
On my other build - It has the hk 450 with the 2618 RX belt drive. If i have too many problems with the tail end of it then it will take on the 2614 and brushless tail also. It just seems easier. even more so in a fuselage.

Is it not possible to use the 2618v with a brushless tail setup?
