Default more problems with my new falcon 40

i got a falcon 40 monday this week, broke a servo that day, and got the replacement today.

i was flying it today, everything was working on the first battery pack, and then i took a short break, and tried some more with a second battery pack. half way through the second pack it started having serious control issues, and then the tail motor stopped spinning, so i throttled down as soon as i noticed it and went over to take a look.

the wire leading to the tail motor was melted, and had apparently shorted. i was hoping andy or someone could tell me if there was any sort of warranty or replacement deal or something, ive seen people get some things taken care of here before, if i remember correctly. i bought it from x-heli if that makes a difference.

also, i have the tail motor stick trimmed all the way to the right, and it still rotates slightly to the left when its flying. is there anything i can do myself to fix that?

thanks in advance

i wanna make sure you 4 in 1 receiver still works. interchange the motor and test it out and let me know. What's your order number?

order number is yhst-94582326164583-85423

should i buy another tail motor and try it? im brand new to this, so i really dont have any spare parts just laying around. itll take a few days to get the parts, assemble it and test them.

if it makes a difference, i could move the sticks, and get the heli to rotate in both directions.

thanks
