  • replace feathering shaft and re-grease bearings.
  • set 260 cyclic control rates. no big difference
  • vibes =0.6 no change . good flights but see tail slight twitch. lower sk gov gain and its stlll there. go back to Ice gov.
  • set 280 cyclic rates
  • 2700 and 2800rpm
  • photos are too dark. need to adjust??

Tidy up ESC wiring. Maybe time to try SK Gov again.

3x flights all good. vibes less with loose blades.=0.6 no spikes on looses blades.
tight blades plus inverted =spike to3 to 6

now set to sk go . gain=20 as per anthony1 thread advice.

get 0.7vibes with spikes during inverted. need to be smoother on collective and have less blade farts

first flight with sk gov and no twitch on tail any more . no breeze either but all seems perfect....
