ok here is the run down and I hope someone can help..

new oxy 3 with 47mm tail blades
savox tail servo (second one I tried)
vbar
scorpion motor
upgraded to metal tail bell crank
upgraded to metal belt tension idlers
the belt is tight as spected in build directions
head speed is from 4000-4500

I have tries different p gain and I gain settings in the vbar and still the wag persist. this is a brand new heli only 9 flights no crash or abuse at all.
I have almost $700.00 invested with the upgrades and several tail servos trying to correct this issue, needless to say im getting pretty agrevated with this to say the least.

please help if you can

thanks

How old is the kit? Do you have white or black tail blades? Also, does it have a 14 or 15 tooth tail pulley?
The older kits with the white tail blades and 14 tooth tail pulleys had tail wag problems. I have the same issue with new parts on the way. I also have a bad wobble in my one way hub that could be causing an issue.

Some arguments are sound and nothing more

How much drag you have on the pushrod?

Slow wag or fast wag?

Fast wag fix would be to turn the gain down, if gain is already low then you have too much mechanical gain. Slow wag can be either something binding in the pitch mechanics, tail blade grips or simply an esc issue.

60% of the time, it works every time!

All the white tail blades have been serviced, plus a additional 50 kits pre issue and 50 kits post issue.
Issue was not wag. It was balance.

There is no more old kits with issues.

Any wag and tail issues will not be from a faulty kit.

Make sure everything is free and not binding.
