Tail binding help
I have a slight tail wag that I am trying to correct. Lowering the main gain and the P gain in the vbar helped but not 100%. I started checking the tail bearings and the individual components for smoothness and binding. Everything is buttery smooth except there is a little binding full right, when the slider is near the tail case. I checked each piece all the way back to the servo. I cannot seem to locate the source of this binding. Any ideas how to remedy this?

Check to make sure that the bushings are not bottomed out causing binding.

I guess binding is not the correct word. Travel is 100%, but it gets sticky all the way towards the tail case, not smooth and resistance free as the rest of the travel.Compass 7HV, Trex 550E

I had a small wag/head wag like the gains was to high. Come to find out I put my throttle curve up to 100% and it is silky smooth!

I think I would strip it down and put a new tail shaft on and just do a good look over the tail section while you have it torn apart. Good luck bro!
