It's both rotors, cap and bering and the blade grips.

I think I figured it out. I think one of my batteries is getting weak or was somehow damaged. I tried a different...

Aluminum lower rotor for BCX?

Finally got one of the new inner shafts with the aluminum upper rotor head for my Blade CX.

Anyone know when/if they are going to make an aluminum lower rotor head?

considering how fast I fried my 4 in 1 when I didn't shut down the blade CP when the blades got locked up in a shrub I would say you're doomed to fry the 4 in 1 the moment you crash, or if there is...

On a friends XRB it was the upper blade tracking that was causing the slow turning. I don't think it's the same problem on the CX. Mine does the same thing. Clockwise (right) it turns real slow,...

I'm curious about the durability of the CF blades as well. I heard they are rather tough and a blade strike is more likely to cause damage to the rotor head then to the blades. Is this true?
