Default Weird Oscillation???

Hi guys.

Finally took my 500 out for some forward flight to get a feel for the 3GX etc.
Check out the video at 1:15. Hard to notice unless you have your volume up.
You can hear the oscillation for about a second or so.

Any Ideas?

It was hard to hear with the wind noise, but I thought I actually saw a tail oscillation. The fact that it happened in a fairly sharp turn would also be a sign. Try turning your tail gyro gain down.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

Saw it once. Heard it about 4-5 times.

Reminiscent of some mSR & mCP X flights I made today.
