All of the helis I have owned in the past I was able to set them up to fly nice and smooth. Now since rebuilding my Swift NX after my basement flooded in september it is fighting me with everything its got. I am getting my butt kicked by this thing. I am having issues getting the tail assembly to balance. I have never had this kind of trouble with any heli I've had. When the entire tail shaft with hub and blades is on the Hi point it is perfectly balanced, but the moment I put the thing on the heli the vertical tail fin flaps faster than a humming birds wings. I really wish I could find a shop that had the cnc tail case in stock for it. I really think the plastic tail housing is allowing the bearings to move around a bit even though I had wrapped them in stripping tape to make them fit the housing very tight. I like my Mini titan, and it is a pretty smooth little heli, but I would like to teach my son how to fly helis, and the swift is just way more stable and a bit more forgiving.

I guess "Lost my touch" really doesn't apply because my mini titan is a smooth as I could ever ask for.

I thought that. But if I remove the tail hub I get no vibes at all, now this is just running it on the bench with no main blades. add the tail hub with no grips, smooth, add the grips, slight shake, add the blades bad shake. I am thinking that I am still getting movement from the tail bearings in the plastic housing.

Have you tried a different set of tail blades. I had a set once that would crack my tailboom at the case from a vibration.

I will get another set of blades to try. I know the original tail blades where way off as far as the weight of each blade. The blades I have now are still century tail blades but they are the tough blades and each blade is identical in weight and cg. Time to try a different brand I guess.

Blades need to be statically AND dynamically balanced, get the c of g of both blades matched first then put the whole assembly on your hi point balancer. Remember weight needs to be added to the c of g point of the lightest blade not the tip (providing the c of g point is the same on both blades).

60% of the time, it works every time!
