I have many problems but no answers

maybe a couple of ideas

does the tail move freely with out any binding

have you tried moving the ball on the servo arm in 1 hole

are you flying a flat line throttle of 85% or higher

btw what gyro and servo are you using

yes the tail moves freely

we did try to move the servo hole in one

and i believe we are running a throttle curve higher than 85%

and the gyro is the 3g unit that comes with it, and we have stock align servos in it

Reduce tail lock gain to 50 with programmer.
Increase radio gyro gain to about 75

Make sure there is no loctite binding up the pitch slider to blade grips. If it gets into those bushings, it will cause wag that no amount of tweaking will get rid of.
