CX2 Power problem

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a cx2 that fell to the ground pretty hard.
Had to replace inner and outer shafts and landing gear,Since this happened it has no power,maybe 40% at full throttle. and after being trimed at hover,will start to rotate as soon as you ad throttle.
I then was told a moter was weak,put 2 new ones no change!
Any ideas?
Thanks for looking.

Re: CX2 Power problem

I whould check the gear mesh between your motors and main gears. Make sure they are not to tight.

Have you tried a diffrent battery? You may have a battery problem.

Re: CX2 Power problem

Possible issues:

loose collar on one of the motors or shafts?
motors hooked up incorrectly?
or perhaps a bad 3in1?

Re: CX2 Power problem

A buddy of mine had a similar problem, and it turned out he forgot to put the cotter pins in the main shafts. Dunno if that'll help you at all.
