Default Tail not recentering

Just changed everything on the tail on my t-rex 500. Fired it up to adjust the tail and I kept going back and forth trying to adjust it. On further notice I saw the tail not centering so I turned off the power to see if it was sticking. It was not I oild the tail shaft and linkage rod when I assembled it so its pretty smooth. I have the Beast X wondering if I set my end points to far out I will try that next. Other than that any help would be nice.

Do you mean it's just not returning to center after releasing the stick? If so, that's normal if it's in heading hold mode. I assume the BX has a tail setup step that will put it in Rate mode for setup.

When I spool up my bird and give the tail input it spins in circles.

Make sure your gyro direction and tail rotor pitch direction are correct.

Going from memory, if you give right rudder the servo will pull the pushrod forward (add pitch to turn the nose to the right). If this is wrong reverse the tail servo in the transmitter.

Pick up the heli and turn the nose left and again, the servo should pull the rod. If this is backwards (which would be my guess) reverse the gyro direction in FBL setup
