Need Help! Got the Head Bobbles? I think?
I know this has been talked about but I can't figure out why mine does this. I have a Raptor 70 and when I do tick tocs, by the 3rd one the tail is bouncing up and down. Kind off like the whole heli is tedaring on its for-aft axis. I don't know if this behavior is the head bobble that people refer to or not. It also acts like it has play in a hover and when you wiggle the stick for-aft the heli bounces and does not act solid. Same thing as when I do tic-tocs.
I don't know how else to explain it.

I read that this is caused by the factory plastic head so I upgraded to the Quick UK head block and grips and the heli still does it. No better or worse. Also when I installed the head I figured the dampers may have been a cause too so I swapped them to the Infinivative ones per the instructions (no grease). The only thing I have not tried was to install the tuning o-rings from Infinavative.

Does anyone have any suggestions, I am lost?
Please help, it is driving me crazy and I have invested $250.00 plus in trying to fix it.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention it flies really smooth in all aspects otherwise and has no vibrations what so ever @ 1800 head speed.
