Gyroscopic precession

I think there's a lot of truth in that! With anything that rotates, such as a heli main or tail rotor, there will be gyroscopic precessional forces, and the heavier the rotor the larger those forces will be, gving the gyro more work to do to counter them. I really like the all-plastic tail on my 50-size nitro Kyosho Caliber, which uses a forked arm and two-part plastic grips, and has zero slop.
