Hi, I'm very new to RC copters, so have patience please.  My S107 flew wonderfully on its first flight, no big crashes.  It was the first copter with a gyro that I have flown so the handling was a real joy.  

Second flight the tail rotor stopped working about 1 minute into the flight.  I have found that by recycling the power switch and flicking the rotor it will come back to life for a short period but then unexpectedly stop again.  Could this be the motor itself or just a short?

Thanks,

kilwer

Thanks Bernie, that seems to help.  It still quits after awhile, but works longer now.  I'll continue to tweak it.  Thanks again, Kevin
