Since the 611 is using a SS sensor which main feature is being temperature change insensitive, it shouldn't be drifting because of temperature changes unless he is driving with the heli in his car at 15C and then goes fly in 45C and even then the temperature range isn't big enough to make it drift... wierd.

Tail servos with metal heat sinks do get hot, the heat sink is there to take the heat away from the motor so it will get hot, by hot I mean with a kiss test not hot to touch with your fingers. I would say its a vibration issue if its getting too hot or your servo arm is too long or a mixture of both.

60% of the time, it works every time!

So I turned the gain down and moved the servo ball out a hole. The performance was INSTANTLY better (servo is not as hot either)! But not perfect. Nose still turns SLIGHTLY during flips and rolls. I'm going to put in the delays now and see if that makes it perfect. I'll let you know. Thank you for all the advice.
