my 600N with the g3 setup has a nasty tail kick. I am running the tail servo 9256. there is also a slight wobble in the helicopter. like the head speed is too low. I have changed the gain on the tail form 60 to 90. this does change the the tail from hunting to fast oscillation but it never settles.
the align sensor is in the front above the servos. This helicopter was fine until I put this head on so it has to be in the setup. any tip's

If you are only using one piece of tape add another or use some zeal tape, it worked for me on a 3G 700 sounds like you need to maybe lower the cyclic gains as well

the tail kick seems to be an issue most if not all of us are having. There is a thread over on the other forum that some have found a different tape combination that has helped. I haven't tried it yet but I believe they are using Scotch clear mounting tape 4010. The wobble might be caused do to high gain settings on the unit.

I put 4 flights on it today the tail shake it gone. Now I have pitch problems. In ff flight into the wind the nose will pitch up and it is severe. I had to drop the ale and elv gain down a half of a turn to get the wabble out.

The random tail kick is a software issue & will be addressed in the firmware update.

Don't bother using Zeal.
The 3G likes to be almost hard-mounted.
Even the supplied tape is too soft.

On my 700 I tried many combinations of different tapes & metal plates.

A single piece of 3M #4010 tape gives by far the best results.
