I saw this first on RR and left a little write-up there. I will also say it hear that the flight looks very good and yes, you did get it boggying along in a few places, but it looked fine. I mentioned that it was hard to see the issue but knowing it is there, you may find as I did, that I had the blades a bit too tight for slower rpm and once backed off just a bit more, the ocillation went away. I was flying a 700 at around 1800 rpm and it was bobbing up and down like a cork in a storm. Once backed off, it flew great. On that heli, I have a Skookum 720 with about 9 degrees of pitch, 6 degrees of cyclic, and 55% exponential on the cyclics. It is a joy to fly. Keep it up.
