I noticed first that my tried and trusted S107G stopped going backwards, only hovers and flies foward. Then I noticed that the tail rotor did not spin at all, as if it had no power; checked the two wires leading back to the tail motor, they are properly soldered on.

So what should I do? Get a new tail motor?

Thanks for help.

try a drop of wd40 on the motor first, if that doesn't work then replace it

Thank you for your speedy reply, Redfive. Should I also do the same to the other motors, for maintenance sake? And what about the gears?

Watch using WD40 on the plastic stuff. OK to use from time to time, but if

you want to keep the motors lubed, hit a hobby shop or Amazon and look

for something geared for model trains. Believe it or nor not, even common

household vegetable oil works GREAT. Apply with a Q-Tip! OK to use WD40

first, then regular maintenance with cooking oil, won't harm the parts!
