set SK:
reduce control rates to 210/240 as default /bell gain goes down automatically).
reduce cyclic gain to 50 default.
check self tune bell again.
hd down to 75.

set Tx:
Expo: set cyclic to 25 (was 20) . Set Tail to 30 (was 40)
DR: set both banks to 100%

Flight good but roll a bit slow. need to up the rates. may need more expo on cyclic in this case. vibe 0.4 at 2800

next test E/A 230/260 with 30 Expo. Heli and tx configured...

3 flights
loosen main blades. now smooth and not too tight to move rather than sticky tight. This removes shake on spool up/down and reduced vibe level slightly.
Windy. this is visible in vibe graph.
score 0.4 at 2600 and 2800. 2800 smoother on graph.

Re-level SK removed from heli on bench.

Re-fit SK720 with SK black gyro tape (used) with no metal plates. seems to stick ok, but need to keep an eye on it and replace soon.
flight very shaky: tape was not good plus loose screw on mast block.
re-install plates and zeal.
shorten top bearing block screw and apply lots of locktite
quick hover. vibe 0.3 no shakes
flights x2 vibes 0.4 during sport flight.
try strapping sk down with fuel tube. increases...
