Welcome to the world of rotors. Some people love them, some people hate them. I happen to love mine, never had an issue with it. Others not so lucky. Are your batteries good and of good quality.

Take out your battery tray in your rotor. Look at the back of the tray where the power button is and there is an allen head screw on the right lower outside corner, turn it out until it is flush with the housing of the battery tray.

I've found that turning it out 2-3 turns is a good place to start. You can still shot very fast with it out 2-3 turns, 12.5 no problem at all.

I love my rotor. I haven't used a hopper that remotely compares to the awesomeness of the dye rotor.
