I have just purchase a secondhand MT.
I have set it up and when I test flew it, it appeared to be what is best described as nodding. The nose and tail were dipping slightly in a rocking motion as it sat in the hover. Also when I flew it in forward flight it appeared to dip occassionally also.
Not sure if this has anything to do with the CofG or something else.
It has a full metal head and the blades track good.
Any help would be appreciated

Low headspeed? Paddles not aligned?

Thanks guys for your feedback and help - seems pretty unanimous.
I'll try out with a higher head speed next weekend (if the snow doesn't come back).

Guys, although it is dark when I go to work and also dark when I get home I managed to have a quick hover last night and increased the head speed.
Guess what - you guys are great - stopped nodding.
Thanks again, I would never have got that on my own.
Many thanks and keep up the good work of helping and encouraging others.

All the best.
