I'm having a hard time trying to locate this random shake. It starts out perfectly smooth, but then starts shaking after about a minute of flying. The dampener o-rings are well lubricated. New main shaft, new spindle, new carbon blades (two sets tried), new tail rotor shaft. I don't see how it could be something bent as it is smooth in the beginning of the flight.

Thoughts?

Hi Augusto,

I'm running the 600mm Mavrikk carbons - probably an 1800 head speed. I'm getting a landing gear/canopy shake. It seems to be a head speed shake - not a tail buzz.

This is the new Logo 20 head - the old one did the same thing. I've checked the balance of both sets of blades that I've tried, and they are almost perfect.

Bill,

I understand that according to Heliproz the Maverik blades are very fast blades so they are prone to being unstable in certain heads.
You might want to call them and ask them about it.
