While flying my Raptor 50V2 yesterday, I noticed a vibrating/humming noise that seemed to be coming from the tail but I'm not sure. While hovering around 2-3 feet, I would feed it quick shots of rudder to the left then right (pausing in between for a few seconds). I gave it just enough to point the nose off center about 45 degrees. About 1 - 2 seconds after the would nose stop, I could hear a slight vibrating/humming sound. I never noticed it before and that's why I'm concerned. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks!

Probably not the answer, but I took my tail apart at the weekend to replace the belt and, by chance, found that the pin holding the red gear to the shaft had poked it's way out and was rubbing on the inside of the plastic case. I hadn't noticed this before but could cause a hum.

Also check that the belt is tight enough.
