Default Night radian

Hi all I have a night Radian which had a hard landing made the repairs and fisher flys ok until you put in more than half throttle then the back of the fuselage starts to fish tail, the motor shaft is not bent the spektrum receiver is a stock receiver so any one can help I would be great full.

The plastic sleeve that the rudder pushrod runs through may have come loose. Is the rudder easy to move back and forth without moving the servo?

Default Vibration?

I had a landing run a little long and bumped the far side of a little hill. It just slid into it with a little ‘bop’. Everything seemed fine, but the next time I flew it, any time I was over about 3/4 throttle the rudder and elevator would twitch and wiggle everywhere.
I came down and didn’t see anything obvious. Launched again and it did it again, worse and then made a racket and stopped.
Long story short, the plastic nose/firewall broke. I think it was vibrating and then the remaining plastic broke until the whole motor was dislodged. It twisted and bound up.
In retrospect, I think the vibration messed with the gyro and caused the control problem.
i went home, removed the nose, ordered a new one only like $4, but I didn’t want to wait that long to fly so I CA’d and epoxied the existing one back together and was out flying that evening.
new nose piece arrived but I still haven’t swapped it out yet. All seems fine.

Hi I found the fault with my night radian the receiver has a problem and I need to reprogram it, as the gyros are screwed up from the hard landing made repairs and now using frsky receiver.
All the best with your flying Steven.
