Yep, nothing worse than having to disassemble what you just spent hours putting together to go chasing a vibe ghost. I'm to the point now that I don't use any Loctite on any of the chassis screws until after initial testing. I would rather wait and do them all to once at the end rather than dealing with taking them back out, or risking stripping something. Plus it gives me the chance to go over all the screws once again anyway.

I'm assuming it's the corrected version to deal with the bug where people with traditional RXs were getting reversed servos after upgrade to 3.12.

My guess it does nothing different for the rest of us

Just an update, my bad on the readings I was getting from the graph. It turns out my new 600E Pro scale AS350 has an average vibration level that matches my Jet Ranger. That is .2. No flatline, sigh, but hey, .2 is very low so that's a good thing. Take care.

Here's a picture of it at it's maiden flight day. Lots of detail to be added and the SK720 performs flawlessly with the latest firmware update.

After the experiences made several months, I concluded that small vibrations are not good,compels you to use very soft antivibration
device which can generate chaotic movements of the SK,implicitly of the helicopter.Vibrations would be good in range 2/4.
Keyrigger,nice chop,would have been nice to see a movie with it.
