Default WOW tail motor upgrade wires?

I have a double hot rod WOW upgraded 4G3/Nano CP (my avatar). No matter what I do, It wont quite hold 100% throttle. The tail 'wiggle's. Wow suggested soldering directly to the tail motor, but I didnt. Im using the 3 tiny wires off of the motor despite what they suggested.

Should I do this? Has anyone experienced a difference? Will this possibly fix my tail wag?

Thanks

That means it can't handle the amount of pitch on the blades. Just reduce the pitch range until the tail does hold at 100% collective.

That could be either too much gain, or too much vibration. The gyros on these helis are very susceptible to any vibration.

The best way is to solder the 3 wires directly to their terminals on the esc.

I would throw away all of the plugs (except the one on the main esc that connects to the lipo) and solder everything directly. That's what I did.

Thanks Dusty. I got it! After working on the head it now flies at 100% throttle.

I used two thicker shims to tighten the play in the grips. It flies great now, better than ever.
