Hi. I have searched first before asking, but I cant seem to find an answer. On raptortechnique.com, it says to run the gyro at 0 delay. I have set mine up on 0 delay, and the tail wags. Ive turned it up to about 25-30 and it still does it. I am just hovering right now, but so far the change in delay has made no difference. The linkage to the tail is as smooth as can be, I even oil where it passes through the guides. On raptortechnique, he said vibration can cause this. I do not have the tools, yet, to balance the chopper. This is the first time I have heard of vibration causing the tail wag. Then I read elsewhere that said the gain shouldnt be turned up all the way, because that means the servo arm is wrong. I am using the arm lengths specified in the raptor manual. I am still unsure where to set the delay. Can somebody help me? BTW I will be getting the balancers soon. Thanks, Derek.

I had it too
How long is the servo arm,mine was 18mm.no matter how much you turn the gain down it would shake it was supposed to be at 12mm.Set the arm length to whatever the book says if it is set to that I don't know what your answer could be.I am still new to this hobby,only have seen so much so far.
