Default video of my intermittent tail wobble

hey guys, here is a video of a issue im having. go to 2:47-2:50 and 3:47-3:50 time frame.
im very sorry about the video, all i had was my 10 year old daughter. the 2 time frames i listed are the best spot to see what im dealing with. ive had nothing but tail issue with this heli, but i have got 95% of them fixed.
i dont know if this is normal. anyone have a video of their tail while hovering for me to compair?
its not a twitch or a wag. its more like a wobble or could be called a oscillation. i have flat thottle curves set in my dx6i.. normal is 85% and IU is 95% the issue is in both modes. one thing i DO NOT notice is a speed change when i flip into IU. i know its only a 10% change, im not sure if this is something i would hear ??

well here is the vid, i really hope your able to see it. i might have to get someone else to film it

are you guys able to here the motor speed up when switching into IU ? my normal is a flat 85% and my IU is 95, you think thats to small (10%) to hear ? cause i never hear the motor speed increase.
im just trying to see if its headpseed related.

Make sure you set the end points with a linear curve THEN set throttle curves. I had the same issue until I did that. Then it makes a difference.

I seen the ever so slight tail wag at 3:47, man that is very minor. Is it more exaggerated in FFF?

Was the wind blowing at all? When I see something that slight I tend to write it off to dealing with a wind gust or something.

+1 also seen @ 3:47
It's a very slight wag I also see when in a hover.
It's not always there just sometimes you see it, correct?

YES !! FINALLY !!
i dont have any issue with it during any flight, i just see it during hovering.
helidude, your right, its not always there. sometimes its there and sometimes its not.
im still kinda new to all of this. i just hear people say my tail is rock solid so i expected mine to be, well, solid.
Am i being to picky ? there was a slight breeze while doing the video.
if this is normal then it would relieve my mind..

thanks for your effort guys !

You should.
To be honest, I do think it's not 100% perfect.
But it's 99.9%, good enough for me not to worry about.

Man... I'd be stoked to have that heli, looks like it flies fine to me. Just enjoy it and beat the air into submission!

I used to get a little bit of that, but I think it's gone now. Actually, I'm not sure, I just don't sit still in one spot long enough to notice it anymore.

Haha! For me it hurts to hover the bird, it's just you have kick it's ass, it's screaming for it.
