If your CG. is good with tank half full, than I'd say bad blades, if nothing is loose and the paddles are set right.

You might want to check your dampners too, pull one blade off, and see if you can rotate the main spindle, it should turn freely, if not, pull it apart, and put a little grease or light oil on the dampners, I'll bet that will fix it, as I have had this happen to me after letting my Rappy sit for a year,, Keep us informed,, XGM/VGMJohn Crotts

You should try different paddles. Some paddles can cause what you describe

Raptor pitchyness in fff is paddle alignment or CG

Unless you're using Radix or silly light paddles, then it could be them as well.

It could be a combination of many things ,depending on how bad it pitches . A little pitching is normal ,you can tighten head up and use metal servo arms and servos with metal gears ,if using plastic pitch lever change to metal,higher headspeed .I used a G Force head with KBDD paddles ,8717 servos and metal pitch tray to get mine on rails .I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I just went through this same exact issue with the same exact heli and got rid of all of it yesterday. First was head speed. I was running about 1850 and it pitched bad, I mean scary bad. Increased to 1950 and that eliminated 75% of it. The next thing get rid of the stock two piece dampers and go to the regular Raptor red dampers. Those two piece dampers are hard as a rock. This got rid of the remainder of the pitching. I tried a lot of the other things that people have suggested and nothing worked for me except the above.
