I have the 3G on 700 and its working fine. On the 500 and 600 I'm getting this weird tail kick about twice a flight. All of a sudden the tail kicks about 45º to one side. I've checked the wiring and all looks good without taking pins out of plugs. The 600 is using a 8900G and the 500 I have a 9257. Strange behavior. Both heli's did not do this when I had the GY520 on them.

Hmm, then its not static, there is a thread over at HF about tail kicks, (usually just on the bench) but some have reported inflight, could the same perhaps, just guesssing though.

I did notice last night on the bench the tail servo will twitch once in a while. I'll try and see what HF is saying.

the tail twitch on the bench happens with mine as well, but does not happen in air. Or at least I don't notice it.
