Servo doesn't move properlly

I bought a tandemz-1 which is exactlly the same thing as the Twin Thunder in the US. On the second day the heli's servo didn't move properlly. And it started shaking. I couldn't return it because I broke a part of the body and scratched the paint a lot. Yesterday I opened it and saw NO visible mechanical damege. All the gears were in place and nothing seemed to be wrong. Can you pleace help me fix it! Please!

If you put the gyro on another helicopter and have the same problem then you'll need to replace it. I've tried repairing these in my lab but just not worth the effort. Good luck

Crashed blade 400 repaired it unsure of servo settings helicopter tilts forward and tends to spin around

Try setting gain on Gyro (use small plastic screwdriver) to a straight up and down position.

Set Gyro setting in Transmitter to 75%. NOTE: before turning on helicopter, be sure to center all adjustments on transmitter

Side switch on GYRO to DS and make sure the servo is moving in correct direction. If not. reverse direction with switch on side of Gyro. You may need to reverse the controller of Rudder in settings on transmitter.

This worked for me on my Blade and using the same Gyro on a self build 450 heli.

Good luck!

Linear servo retainer replacement for e-flite mcx

It isn't a great solution, but i was able to get one of these retainers back on. Using only the screwdriver in the kit, and my thumbnail. Try to work in a well-lit, clean area, so if the retainer gets loose, you can find it. Should be obvious, but Make sure the power is disconnected to the heli

--Heli Dis-assembly--
First, disconnect the two servo pushrods from the swashplate. Unless you want to replace the swashplate, be careful not to break the connecting ball off.

Second, disconnect the two motors from the control unit. Be mindful of the direction they need to be reconnected (white/black on outside, blue/orange on inside--in that order)

Third, using the provided screwdriver, remove the two screws holding the control unit on the heli. pull it off the chassis, but be mindful of the Antenna wire. I would try not to bend this more than you have to.

-Retainer installation-
Fourth, lay the control unit on the clean flat surface, pull the servo gear shaft slightly out of the unit until it is flush with the plastic.

Fifth, Carefully drop the retainer next to the servo. Using the tip of the screwdriver, apply enough pressure to the retainer to guide it up the plastic to match the hole with the shaft.

Sixth, Apply gentle but firm pressure upwards on the gear shaft. this should push the retainer onto the shaft just enough for it to hold on.

Seventh, using your thumbnail on one hand, and the tip of the screwdriver with the other, apply pressure to both sides of the retainer to slide it down the shaft. *NOTE* This is where i had the retainer flip off the gear shaft multiple times, only to have to repeat steps 4-7.

Eighth, Begin re-assembly in reverse order from steps 1-5. Reattach the canopy, and power, and attempt flight. If it spins uncontrollably, make sure that you have the motors hooked back up in the correct polarity (otherwise it spins in the opposite direction)

-Tiny tweezers don't seem to allow for enough force to push the retainer onto the shaft
-A standard screwdriver of comparable size to the provided phillips head screwdriver may allow for more pressure to be applied
-The retainers like to spring off of the shaft when pressure is applied in the wrong place-- hence the clean surface to find them when they do.
-I can't seem to find anywhere that sells only the servo retainers, so if you lose them, you may need to purchase the entire servo assembly. :(
-I know check these retainers as both pre and post flight checks to ensure that they are securely into place. They seem to like to pop off during very hard collisions (which is how mine came off)
