Default Slight tail wag

Hi Everyone,

I have my mini almost perfect, but I have a slight tail wag to the right. I have tried a few things to correct but just can't get that tail locked in. Can anyone give me some pointers? Also what do folks have their telemetry set at for voltage and temp? FYI, I have the Devo 10. I must say the mini is awesome for a first CP!!!!

Make sure your tail is pushed into the fuse all the way. Look to see if the the tail mototor housing is pushed into the boom all the way too. Check your gain levels and trim settings. Lower pitch a smidge. Check the spin of the blades for any friction.

I had the same wag but haven't had a chance to see if it's cured yet since my motor's dead. I had a tiny crack in my rotor head as well as beat up main blades and think it's caused by vibrations.

If I lower the gyro sensitivity will this help? I have it at 82% now. I tried sub trim but that was not a permanent fix.

Thanks,

For best performance I try to set my gyro as high as I can before I get wags/wobbles. I have my tail gyro set at 78% any higher and it starts to wag, anything lower than 70% doesn't hold very well; this is with a c05. If your tail is drifting slowly to the right it could be vibration or a mechanical issue.

wag, or drift? A wag in one direction is a contradiction in terms, some type of direction change is implied. Can a dog wag its tail to the right? Choose adjectives describing your symptoms carefully.

The biggest problems with diag over the phone/forum/chat are:

Customer does not accurately and/or completely describe symptoms

Customer has some kind of idea in their head about what is wrong and focus their attention on some irrelevant issue, or think a normal condition is a malfunction because they only looked after it stopped working.

I've worked in a few shops where the answer was always "can't do diagnostics over the phone, bring it in", of course that was automotive.

Having worked service in several industries I can personally attest that these problems are universal.
