Default Oxy4 Max Gyro Tail Gain Question

I have just completed my build, populated Brain2 FBL and had an initial hover to check set up. All seems well except for slight tail oscillation [tail wag side to side]. When I go into Brain2 screen 5 to see tail gain display setting. It is showing 45% and my RadioMaster TX16S (Open TX) is showing a setting of 51%.

Can anyone share what is working well for your Oxy4 Max for a solid tail?

Thanks

The gains will depend on your setup. A starting point of about 45% is the recommended amount of tail gain from the transmitter setup instructions.

What you haven’t said is how the tail wags? Is it fast or slow?

Fast usually means too high of a gain. Decrease by 2-5 and try again, repeat until the fast wag stops.

Slow is usually mechanical but can be a servo problem as well (low performance). This means going through all the usual things to make sure that the tail is smooth and not binding.

Probably in the fast category. I’ll follow your guidelines and see how it goes. Thanks
