I'm sorry but I'm a newb at this.

what is cyclic optimizer? and how do i use it?

You dont have to, but do yourself a favor and upgrade to Pro. You get better setup options and an overall better flying heli when running 5.2 pro.

I found phasing issues with just a normal roll. First I rolled it inverted, and everything seemed fine. After going through with the roll, I ended up with the tail some degrees off. I never noticed this before, probably because I wasn't really looking for it.

Does the heli start un-commanded forward flight? If so you need some swash rotation. On a heli with rear elevator servo and front cyclic servos, using the control panel, go to "swash rotation" and rotate the swash 2 degrees by turning the control wheel in the direction the heli moved. Eg, if it moves right, turn it right so it indicates 2 degrees. No need for reboot, just remove the panel and take off again and do the same thing. Is it worse, or better or even reversed? Remembering where you are from 0 (now +2 degrees), either add or subtract more. Within ~5 degrees you should find you can piro on the spot from a stable hover to any compass position without any un-commanded flight. Getting this right is the difference between a great flying machine ("like a sim!") and a sloppy one. The auto-trim flight also does this adjustment but do you ever have a real windless day? I prefer to do it manually. If phasing isn't right a slow piro while hover will nod the heli (and if you stop at the nod it will start forward or reverse flight). Even if mechanically phasing looks perfect, can you spot a 3 degree error? I can't.
sorry for the stupid question.
you say to rotate the heli 90 degrees to the right and then check for forward flight. the forward flight could only be to the right since i turned the heli 90 to the right. so, why do you say to rotate the swash "in the direction the heli moved"? it can only have moved to the right, isn`t it?
then a few lines ahead you say "will start forward or reverse flight?. now i understood that a fter turning the heli 90 to the right and stopping it, the heli will nod and will either move forward or backwards. now it makes sense to me. if it moves forward i should add some degrees so the swash turns right and if it moves backwards i have to add degrees for the swash to turn left?
thanks

what makes a heli slowly rotates ccw as it tic-tocs (elevator tic-tocs)? little tail gain? pre-comp? i can`t make the tail wag no matter how much gain i add to it. what could be the cause for this? thanks.

Ready2.... If it only moves a little left (nose) during the stops then I'd say increase pre-comp. if it's slowly rotating the whole time then it seems it would do it in all flight and not just tic tocs
