Default Blade 130X Tail Gets Wonky above 40-50% Throttle

I inherited this Blade 130X from my uncle. When I attempt to hover, the tail starts getting really wonky and jittery at throttle above about 40-50%. See the video I captured of this symptom:

I read through some of the sticky posts in this forum, but not sure that any of those describe my issue, or where to start. I'm new to the hobby, so go easy on me.

Clean the tail servo with Deoxit, or replace the servo with a DS76T.

Thanks! I replaced the tail gears and all is functioning well again. I think the gears had some nicks in the teeth.

Hi firstly I am not a gun flyer but do love these machines. I totally agree with the cleaning and if necessary the change of tail servo. After cleaning the existing servo, Deoxit have a go at getting it in the air. Quite often these machines have a resonance issue at certain RPM, and on the ground they are a nightmare. More revs and get it in the air, dont go silly but try to hover over nice soft grass and if its out of control so be it. You have to be a bit game. It might just settle down and as a no cost start point worth a try. Good luck
