Do not turn on your heli while the main blades are folded and in the blade caddy. Depending on the pitch setting , this can cause the collective servo to bind and burn out the motor very quickly. Just ask me how within 10 minutes a brand new £90 ($135) Futaba S5252 servo was ruined.
Before turning on battery power always take the blades out of the caddy and unfold them so that there is no load on the servo.
