What is it doing wrong?
wagging back and fourth? not holding when you apply pitch? (tail yaws to the right)

pull the ball link off the tail servo (or z bend) and move the tail servo pushrod back and fourth a few times. Is the tail pitch slider smooth on the tail shaft? it should be very smooth. Make sure when everything is connected, that the tail pitch slider does not hit the tail hub or the tail gear case. Usually when it "wags" you have to lower the gain some, unless there is binding in the tail pitch slider.
also, check to be sure your tail belt isn't missing teeth.
theres more tail setup help on my website..

what servo are you using on the tail?

Mine had that. We tried everything and eventually replaced the tail unit. Now it's fine. I don't know if that's your problem, but if you can swap tails with someone it might be worth a try. We don't exactly know what in the tail was the problem, but something might not have been machined exactly right.

Make sure that you have setup the gyro mechanically in rate mode. This is the biggest issue facing Trex owners since the "one who is not be names" came out with those damned videos
