Ah gotcha... by the looks of it around here you should have known "dead tail motor" to be the dragonfly Walkra #4.

I am using the stock geared setup. 2 of the flights were the stock battery the next was a 2cell Lipo down to about 50% and then the motor died on a charged stock pack with about 3 30second flights into it. I just changed out the Walkera Servos with Tower pro 9gm's from one of my sail planes and it seemd so much smoother. It just started spining and then hit the ground but no other damage as it was about 30" up.

Now motor does not spin!!!

Eh, I'm an easy going fellow, esp if it was I, whom dropped the ball (forgot the pertinant info)

Now answer the d**n question :-) !!!

Did the 2cell lipo do it in (not even a full run through on a 1300 mAh pack)? Heat sinks help any?
