I have recently installed a Mini G gyro and a Savox SH 1290MG on the tail of my Protos. The problem is when I pick up to a hover there is a steady bounce in the tail back and forth. I've tried adjusting the gain up and down, and even called Youngblood about the gyro and set it up as they said with the ball out at 13mm on the servo, all to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?

how many MM can you move the tail blades in/out with yuor fingers. This "play" may have alot to do with it. There are many ways to get rid of this; carbon tail rod, metal are etc....

I don't have any real play in the tail, if anything it's stiffer than I would like, but I've never seen a protos with any smooth tail. I spoke with a Curtis Youngblood rep again and he said to move the ball out to 15mm, to me that sounds extreme. I did as he said and it got worse, so back to square one. Any ideas?

Check your tail linkages at each point from servo to tail for 'free' movement. If there is any binding anywhere in the tail system, the gyro senses this and trys to make adjustments. Many tail issues fall into this catagory. Once you believe you have the tail system 'free' disconnect the pushrod from the servo. You should be able to move the pushrod and the tail linkages vey easily with no binding or stiffness at all.
