SK-720 Black fitted.
New Align Blades fitted
SK mounted on Skookum black tape: Vibe warning - vibe score during flight=8 - lots of spikes at tail and motor and general freq.
Tightem tail grip bolts to hub.
Fit Tail drive shaft better as too much longitudinal play.
Tighten main gear to shaft as some up-down play.
ground test - no blades: vibe 2.0
ground run with mains : vibe=6.0
flights give random vibe warnings. Vibe log shows low values however...

New feathering shaft fitted and new top shaft holder bearing.
Find notchy bearing in head (Internal bearing next to thrust)
Change out the small external head bearings on both sides too.
Two good flights- windy and difficult to roll neatly. Too much negaive pitch applied plus rudder input.
Vibes around 0.7
Change out tail drive shaft after flight for a new one.
Shorten the Collective/rudder tick length on DX7. This is in an attempt to stop giving rudder...

Test Flight: GPS soft deck 10m.
works well upright and inverted although still seems lower altitude bailing when inverted.

Now set to Rescue Now mode for next flight.
