Hi TUNIC

Firstly which way is it spinning ? If it spinning clockwise check the drive gear for the top rotor it is probably loose and slipping on the shaft, if it is turning counter clockwise check the screws that secure the lower blade Tee to the outer shaft you may find that they are loose and the the rotor Tee is slipping.

basically check all of the screws are done up as tight as practical without stripping them.

Hi TUNIC,

I am sorry to sound negative, but the Alloy Shark S006, do tend to spin uncontrollable, they only real way to get back some kind of control is to twist all four blades manually, reducing the pitch, so they all look horizontal by eye.

Good Luck.
Trev.

Hi TREV,

It's kind of ironic that you said that about the blades. I have a Novus FP, and it too spins uncontrollably. I sent it back to Novus, and they returned it saying there was nothing wrong with it. I did what you just said, only to the tail rotor. I had to bend them, and the blades actually look flat. Now, it flies fine ... too bad I can't fly it very well yet. Embarassed

Hi T-R-E-V,

Thx for your suggestions, but does it affects its aerodynamics? Does it also affects its hieght of flight?
