You might need to raise your gyro gain if you haven't already done so. But the ticking sounds weird, it could be something not being smooth on your tail, maybe something is binding. The tail needs to feel totally free and smooth (the links and on the shaft), when you don't have it attached to the tail control rod. Alternately, maybe your gain is just a tad too high and is causing some subtle tail wag, making it hard for the tail to hold, maybe this is why it looks like ticking.

Its the younger generation that writes with text, rather then proper spelling. N = In, Tha = the, nebody = anybody Kno = Know, sumthn = something

God forbid they take the extra second to add another letter. lol

Maybe your belt is worn, did it fly ok before and just started the ticking?

What gyro is it? And what's your gain value at?

Have you crashed it recently? Or changed anything on it?

It's either mechanical, your gyro (or setting), or servo. Do you have a spare servo?

Dude could you use whole words? Not trying to be mean or nothing but the shorthand is hard to follow sometimes. I'm not an english major, but are you texting? Type how you want, it's just easier to read in plain language, it's cool though.

So the heli has always done this ticking? What heli, servo, & gyro do you run? Did you look at what your gain is yet? Are you running a cheaper 9g tail servo?

Too much negative... on your main rotors? Did you adjust the links? You said you rebuilt the head, if you replaced the links did you adjust them to proper length? Maybe your servos aren't level at 0 pitch anymore, maybe something happened to them... that should be more apparent looking and testing it in front of you.

I would start from scratch on my head/servo setup. Are you familiar with how to do this?

(How come I don't have a 500? )
