Brand new Blade 120 SR, Massive TBE!
 
<span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">Afternoon guys,</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">First I want to say hello to all the Blade 120 SR pilots out here. I'm new and just coming off the MCX2 (which is awesome), and learning how to fly the 120 SR, that&rsquo;s if I could.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">Also bought the DX5e and soon to be the DX6i when payday comes around.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">For the past week I have been having these issues with 120SR doing the "TBE", and I have yet to come across anyway to fix it.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">I've rebuilt the entire shaft with new parts 3 times, changed out 3 different blades, loosened the main head, tightened it, same with the blades, even changed out all the screws with new ones, and even watched a youtube video on a "how to" on the assembly of the rotor shaft.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">I hold the 120SR (so I don't have to take off on the ground) and when I let go it immediately starts the "TBE", and goes into a crash from there. Even when I take off from the ground be in doors or outside, it immediately goes into TBE and is completely uncontrollable.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">I am at a loss here, and have already spent close to $100 dollars on trying to get this bird flying.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">Also when I was at the LHS today, and explained my problem, they asked if I have an older model, I'm not sure if I do or not.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">Either way, looking for some ideas, tips, tricks, help, you name it.</span><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><br style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;" /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">Thank you.</span>
