Default Trekker slow tail wag in hover?

Racking my brain on this, checked for binding, servo seems fine, tried bumping the gyro gain up to 89% then down to 40% and its still there. Seems to get better as the rpm increases. If I hit a hard pitch pump or pyro it holds solid.......anyone else getting this or have a suggestion?

TIA, Dave

Sorry I do not but, my 600EFL does the same thing in a strong wind. I just figured it was weather-vaining. Tail holds well otherwise. A video that I watched suggested to set the TX gain first, then adjust the pot on the gyro (BeastX) second. I'll try to find the video again and post it.

No mine is slowly wagging in no wind. Tail holds though when I'm on the sticks

The pot on the beast is for how hard it stops when lettin go of the rudder input! Is everything perfectly silky smooth on all the tail linkage?

I found this video. It is for a BeastX, not V-Bar. However, I feel it is accurate for most FBL systems in terms of the sequence for setting up the tail gyro & gains. The backwards flight test is interesting. It's worth a shot anyway..

I use two layers of the 3M self adhesive (red). Throw the BeastX's sticky-pads away!
