Hell won't fly forward or backwards

   Welcome aboard and I hope your stay here will be fun and helpful.

To piggy-back on SF's reply:

   The tail-rotor keeps the aircraft balanced in flight. Add throttle and the aircraft tips foreward,

reduce throttle and it tips backward, thus creating the foreward/backward motion of the heli.

Loose the tail moter, and it will basicly hover.

   Like SF said, check to make sure you have no soldier drip on the motherboard from putting the

new battery in. Also make sure the wires have not become disconnected from the motherboard

to the tail motor or from the tail motor itself. Tail motors are very inexpensive and

reasonably easy to replace if no cure is found.

   Good luck and a welcome once again! Please post often!

I guess if worked ok before battery went dud, your soldering might be the problem. Look for solder that has dropped on mother board creating a problem.Hope that helps. Check out soldering tips

I had not used my hell for a while and when I returned to it, it wouldn't take off.  Looking around the forums I decided to replace the battery and now it flies - however, it won't fly forwards or backwards.  Up, down, rotate left, rotate right but not Fwd or Bwd.

Also, the tail rotor does not work, I presume because it is linked to the Fwd or Bwd flight.

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks, Gordon
