Default Weird Tail Blade Noise?

hey guy's on my x7 I have some 105mm edge tails. I noticed today on a hard left or right rudder piro and stop, or a piro flip I hear this sound like blades slapping against each other. I'm serious. literally say if you have a blade in each hand and you just lightly tap 1 against the other, not edge to edge. sorry for not having video. i've visually looked it over but don't see anything out of place.

Sure comes from tail blades and not from the torque tube?
Out of curiosity, do u have the 6mm tail hub in it?

not 100% sure where its coming from. that's just what it sounds like. also I did put the new 6mm shaft on the tail. does the tail on the x7 normally have a lot of gear slop in the tail?

No !!!!!

I would suggest you take a good look at the whole tail drive train before flying it again please.

Start with the crown gear mesh. Check this very carefully. Also check that the T-tube bearings and housings stayed in place when it was pushed in.

You don't want this to happen....

My Movie (0 min 25 sec)


Yea, that's me...
I had strange noise too coming from the tail.....old hub installed..and that s what happened.

Make sure your TT is straight too, to have a hair of wobble is ok, but must be minimum (even though all GAUI TT are not perfectly straight out of the box).

So yes, like Dawiev said, have a good look to the whole tail drive system.

For all the things I love about Gaui, the TT I cannot understand ! Do not assume it is straight, even when new - it will not be.
