the wierd thing with my bird is that on spool up its smooth, then freaks out, then smooths out the rest of the way. on spool down its totally smooth the whole time.

Based on what I saw with the things that I tried, it's like a perfect storm of things that came together and the result, which varies a little, is vibration on spool up or at other rpm's.

Just was helping a friend today diagnose why his tail wasn't holding with his micro heli tail grips and titanium tail shaft. Wow, they are junk?! They grips themselves are so badly out of balance that it destroyed the D gear flat and cracked his boom from the vibration. Also, the bearings in the grips were just toast. I could barely get to to balance with a massive amount of tape weight. Stick with the plastic stuff, it works just fine, buy more batteries with the money saved.

It can take a little time to get the tail to spool up and down smooth by using tape on one tail blade or the other to balance the tail rotor assembly, but I have got mine to be perfectly smooth this way. I have also had to re-adjust my balance if I touched the tail blades on the ground. I can always get it smooth though, just take your time.

hmmm, was going to put mine on last night and my eyes were tired from a total rebuild of my mcpx. Maybe I'll hold off. I've got the slider and the weighted grips/hub/shaft assy.

Hello
Which Microheli tail blade grips does your friend have? My weighted grips are very smooth with no balancing needed. Is the tail shaft bent?

It was the red weighted tail blade grips. The shaft looked straight and the blades were running true which showed the hub is square. With the tail blades off, I had to add a lot of weight to one of the grips for it to get fairly smooth, but I ran out of time at the field and had to go before I could get it fully resolved and vibration free, his broken boom wasn't helping any either.

It looked like these ones:

Maybe it was just bad QC or something on that set I don't know. Wish I had more time to fiddle more.

Hello
Like you can see in my video my weighted grips made a big diffidence in reducing vibrations. I did have to increase tail gain 2 clicks to get them just right. With my stock setup lowering the gain 4 clicks was the sweet spot.

Is it possible a tail grip screw isn,t fully seated or a bearing? Did you weight each grip to see if it is actually a weight discrepancy between the two grips?

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

I bought my MH tailblade grips today with the tailshaft included. It has the chinese weights. I first pulled it out of the package ,checked it over and took it apart. The bolts holding the grips to the tail shaft were not locktited and were abit loose. Cleaned the little bolts and the tailshaft threads and dabbed a small amount of blue locktite and assembled the assembly. Because of a previous post I chucked the tail assembly and ran it up [without tail blades] in my dremel tool. Shaft was straight and the whole mess seemed true without any vibrations at up to 20,000 rpm's. With tail blades I ran it up in my hand and seemed very smooth. Test flights to follow.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Nice maybe my friends were a qc issue or something. For me I think a good upgrade would be a metal pitch slider as my stock was has a bit of slop on the bench. My tail still holds good all stock even with fast backward hurricanes though. I know the little bit of extra slop is making the tail servo work a little harder and will contribute to faster wear.
