Default Blade 400 3d tail rotor damage

I have a blade 400 with stock servos and gyro and every time I spool it up and get off the ground, the tail looses hold and when I set it down to adjust gyro gain, the trailing edge of the tail rotor blades are chipped. If I continue to land and adjust gain to compensate for the loss of rotor blade surface, after the third or fourth landing after adjustment, almost half of tail rotor is chipped away on the trailing edge, not the leading edge. It looks like a snagged-tooth shark took a bite out of the blade, anyone heard of this before?
