Default Tail Oscillation in 600 E and 700E

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this. I posted the same question several months ago but still no solution. I have a Trex 600E and 700E, both with the original Helicommand 3D. They both have the same problem in that when I hover them the tail oscillates back and forth at a very constant frequency, about 2-3 Hz, a slow oscillation with an amplitude of several inches. If I accelerate upward or fly around the oscillation appears to go away.

I am using the Helicommand internal gyro, with gain set on the gear switch of my x9303. The gyro gain in my transmitter is set "inh." I am not sure if that is relevant as I adjust the gyro gain using the software. In the software I have assigned (under tail gyro tab) the aux switch to "tail gyro(gain & mode)" When I switch the gear switch up and down then the Aux channel bar on the "Diagnose" page of the HC software oscillates between 0% (the bar half colored) to 55% (bar colored slightly above mid-point)

I have played with the slider (gyro gain default setting) at the top of the "Tail Gyro" page in HC software but have not had any success.

Any suggestions? Do I need to set my x9303 to dealwith it or can it all be done in the software, and if so am I setting it up correctly? If I activate the gyro sens in my radio it wants to be auto or rudd D/R. But is this where I need to adjust.

Thank you and I hope my question is not to cryptic! For now I am afraid to fly them as I don't know the source of the oscillation. I have changed tail servos, so I highly doubt it is mechanical, especially being on two helicopters and behaving almost identical.

Help me obi wan Kenobi, your my only hope :-0
