I have an E600. After a crash in Nov, I also installed an SK360. I've been struggling with it since then to get back to a machine that handles as well as it did when I first got it.
The 2 biggest problems are the bounce and the tail twitch.
I'm a rank beginner, so i rarely let it more than 2-3' up, mostly fly within inches of the deck. I can fairly easily bring it to an altitude that I like, say 3", and for a short while it'll stay there, but then frequently after a few seconds, it'll start bouncing up and down - as if either there were power surges or as if someone was playing a little w/ the collective. It will go up 6-12", and then back down about 1 bounce per second, and will keep this up until I land it.
In addition to this, the tail will twitch - I've never seen the "wag" that's discussed, but this is a very definite twitch to one side or the other - never back and forth. It'll go about 6" clockwise, then back maybee 1/2", then another 3-4" CW, then back a little, it'll do several of these twitches in one direction and stop. then start over,sometimes going in the same direction as before, sometimes the other direction.
I'm going to reinstall the flybar to rule out the SK360 (I dont really think the SK360 is the problem, but it's the biggest change I made).
Does anyone have any thoughts about power surges - i'm using a 75A ESC from ACE, and a separate BEC from Castle. The HH gyro is a futaba 401. I believe the tail mechanical setup is correct.
What about shielded control wires?
