I replaced the gyro with a G210 and the tail servo with a 450 servo. I set up the head from the swash to the blades as per a youtube video from Horizon. I had it hovering for about 5 minutes, then it started losing the tail authority.
It rotated CCW, I gave it full right rudder to bring the tail CW with no response. The drift was slow enough by the time I cut power and dropped it, it was nose in. At this point, not sure what happened. I did notice that each time I gave rudder input during hover, the gyro light would blink. One good note, the tail rotor did not have any more chips on the trailing edge, so far.
