I have about 50-60 flights on my 5003D

Just started experiencing a serious tail-wag tail

Intermittent in nature.

Its not the gain on gyro, as it has been flying well for a while.

Any ideas?? I have not experienced any static issues yet - is this an occurrence during static problems.

Any suggestion where to further investigate would be appreciated.

The belt doesn't look like it has any slip issues.

Maybe I am having a rudder servo problem - not sure yet.

Thanks,
Jeff

What gyro and servo?

Check that the slider is not sticky, give her some lube, she will love it!
Nothing worse than a dry shaft!

Boom stays and boom clamp still tight?
New packs, more headspeed?

Flybars. Who needs `em.

Double check that your tail control rod ends are still secure. Also make sure the ball on either your servo arm or pitch control arm are still tight.
