When I finally got the tail to stop vibrating, the tracking of the blades were off about 1/4". I then adjusted the linkage in the other direction. When I got the blades to track perfectly, the vibration came back.

I then pushed one weight on the end of the flybar in, the vibration got worse. Finally, when I pushed the weight from the other side in about 1/4", the vibration stopped and the blades are still tracking.

Does all this sound right? I figured you would want the blades to track as perfectly as possible and if I have to have the weights moved a bit to stop vibration, that's a good thing as well.

I appreciate any comments back.


If it flyes without vibration, its all good
