No vibration logs available for any of the beastx clones 2Doggs. The way we know if there is vibration is a simple spool up test. Then check for random servo movements or creeping to one side of the swashplate.. With that said, I do believe that is another advantage of the G31. Much more tolerant to high vibrations.

Aggghh.. I knew it was too good to be true. Alot of gyros seem to have a hard time with the tail on the 250 so I should have expected this anyways. What if you used a mini servo on the tail...same results?

Huh, I lumped the G31 in with all the others, believing it to be a BeastX clone. So is it really just the G31 that can give you a vibe log?

The only bad thing I have seen with the G31 or blackwidow or Alzrc3gx, all the same. Is that the tail is not as good as most of the other gyros out there, But they do add the vibration log, sat/s-bus, and future upgrade to come with governor.

Correct. The G31 is not a clone of anything. It is the only one of the cheap 3 axis gyros with a vibration log.

Well with the current direction of firmware development, I don't really see any promise of a better tail hold any time soon. I think next month I may just pull mines off the VWINRC 450 Pro and get a VCTRC 3GX.

Got my Servos today!! So far I am impressed. They are very smooth unlike some others have stated. No notchy gears at all. Must have lube because they are too smooth to not have it. I have yet to power them up. Have to goto the folks for Christmas eve dinner.

Ended up having enough time to test. I don't know if 4 new AA batteries just don't have the amp power or what. If I move the servos really fast my fr sky RX locks up. I changed RX's to a real futaba and tried again and still lock up. I removed one servo at a time and still the same issue. So it's not just a shorted out servo and no warm servos. These must be some power hungry suckers.

It already has the governor - and I really like the tail, though I'm not a very advanced flyer unfortunately

Well I am at a loss of words on these servos. I powered everything off of my CC ice 100 with the 5 amp bec and they still lock up my RX and make the rx go's red!

I opened them up and must say they are made really well. All the gears are properly greased. All the solder joints are nice and clean. On the pots I had one with the wires really close, almost touching. The other looked normal, and the third looked like someone had spread the pot leads apart. Maybe with the fbl controller in between will make a difference. I really hope I can solve this like I said the servos are great quality

I am sure I just got some from a bad production run. It would of been hard to find for one on one they work fine. Just any more than one in any combination sends them funny right before the RX locks out. I may produce a video of all test, but am waiting to see if it was just a bad batch.

Kinda hard reading what you posted above on my PC. But that really sucks that the servos are junk. Now it makes no sense even looking at the 550 combo because it includes the same servos. Is Sam going to replace the servos for you? Is your rx still working? I was gong to buy a gyro from them but I will go with the HB800 instead. I really feel bad for your experience...sorry dude. I received some heli parts (non electronics) that look really well made but I guess quality control does not apply with electronics.
