Default Night Magic Blades - Synchro Problems

Hi volks, just got a new set of NMB - the 720mm RGB ones for my Raptor E720.
Anyway I did 3 flights and was not very satisfied with the results ! I faced following issues:

1st flight:
It seemed that the blade with the "upper LED" Bank didn't synchronize the whole flight - always only the blue LED at the tip was on.
The lower LED bank at the other blade was OK - the pictures were there.
(The presentation with the designer software was properly store same on both of the blades in advance - so this is not the problem)
So after stopping I recognized, that the upper LED blade was not detected by the sensor tape on the boom - OK then I added an additional sensor tape behind the existing. With a check on the ground It was then detected....
I release both batteries to make a reboot.... then:

2nd flight:
Strange that now none of the blades seemed to synchronize correctly -the picture was not even valid neither on the upper nor on the lower LED Bank.
Interesting is, that a soon I did a throttle cut to decrease the rpm to zero, the pictures at both blades were properly existing.

Just my thoughts:
Could it be, that the sensor strenght via the NB-Designer has to be inreased from 5...to higher value ? Could it be that my existing "light-cable" around the boom is interfering the sensor ?

I order them directly from Night Magic. I have a pair of the old RG ones that have seen quite a few flights and a set of the rgb I have still never tried.
