Default Oxy2 tail wag issues

So I’m trying to get my oxy 2 flying right, but have major tail wag. It’s running a msh micro brain2, and align ds425M tail servo. I’ve checked all the mechanics and everything moves nice and smooth like with zero slop, tail servo is working as it should. I’ve gone all over with my gains and the wag either gets sharp and violent or slow and sloppy. I can’t seem to get a solid hold. Any suggestions on what I should be doing would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance and happy flying!

You've got all the symptoms of mechanical issues. It its slow with low gain then gets out of control with higher gain, something is binding. Spool up the heli with no blades and the tail servo disconnected. Move the tail rod back and forth, should be buttery smooth.

My links all needed major work to loosen, now it flys great. I had the best success scoring an extra ball with an exacto knife to re-size the links. The test is the link should fall under its own weight. Try this first and see if it fixes the issue.

Yeah, I need to add remove governor in my troubleshooting steps, its so easy to forget that as a culprit. And its the easiest one to fix.
