T-REX 500 › Tail Wag at high HeadSpeed

I am running HS6965/GY401 on my 500ESP. The gyro gain is at 55% and the pinion is 13T. I am running my throttle flat curve at 85% which gives the smooth tail. Yet, anything that goes higher than that will result in the tail wag, and needless to say for 100% flat curve. I have tried setting the gyro gain to higher value but does not help. Any suggestions?

Try to lower the gain until it stops wagging, and then see if it holds in a punchout. If not you may have a vibration that is only resonating at that headspeed.

Do or Do Not, There is No Try

I do not know. How can I check? It is a brand new setup and I am using the Align motor and esc. The esc will cause tail tag if running in gov mode?

Yes...go through your ESC setup and make sure you don't have gov turned on.

The higher headspeed the lower gain you need. The T500 is know for touchy tail wag but you can dial it in . I have 3 different gains set for 3 differnt HS! Also if you are using Align esc then yes dont use gov. CC esc, Jazz esc have great governors that work well with the T500. Dont be afraid to turn gain up or down until you stop wag with all HS settings!
