Tail rotor works intermittently

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
