I've had my S107 for a handful of days now and the rear motor stopped working.
From what I can see, the wires are still connected (although I cannot see where they connect to the main board).
Am I best to purchase a new tail motor and try to fix it myself? Or will this be over my head and I'm just better off getting a whole new helicopter?
Are there any sort of instructions on how to replace the tail motor/boom?
If you have a soldering iron, it's well worth buying the motor.
There's two ways to do it- 1 (the best way) buy the motor ONLY. There's some extra wire at the motor, so you can cut them, solder on the new one, cover each wire w. electrical tape, and you're good. Just place back in the holder.
2- remove the tailboom, and replace that entire part. I don't reccomend this unless the tailboom is really bent. Waste of a tailboom and money.
Take a mini screwdriver, take off the nose and one side's lower frame to get a look. Work on something where you can't loose the micro-screws, though!
Then, peek inside and look around.
If it is disconnected there, unscrew the plastic frame for the MB from the other side, lower it out, and solder the wire on.
