Well I have been trying to figure it out for a few weeks and I finally found my issue. Being a newbie I am learning. Excessive end play in my tail rotor. Well upon raking it apart I found that on of the bearings was on its last leg. Well I slapped in a couple new bearings and shimmed out the little bit of end play that it still had and whalla, now more wag.
Flying as a newbie was fun today too. 10mph winds with gusts to 15mph. Flew just fine and now my fear of wind is gone too. Flew some cucuits and some arientation practice. Even flew off asphalt without a fear of landing. It just keeps getting more fun!

Great job!! It is a blast once you can hover well and start figuring out the mechanics and electronics. It is very good mechanic practice running down problems and fixing them.

Team Sanjel!
