Hi guys,

I´m getting a tail wag, this only happens if i go into fast sideways flight to the left, also when turning left while doing circuits, it does not happen at all to the right. When it does this i can also hear the engine changing rpm in sync with the wagging tail, as soon as i turn the circuit or stop the sideways flight the wagging stops.

I´ts a Raptor 50 with a Futaba GY502 governor is a CY ATG

what could this be?

Thanks,

Diego

+1 duck head. It's almost definitely gain. It's probably just a point or two too high so that it doesn't do it in FF or hovering, but in some conditions. I've seen this behavior too and it was gain.

Also it's possible that there's a tiny bit of binding in the tail somewhere. Most likely just gain though.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.
