As I spooled up my 130 for the first time it made a terrible sound and wouldn't lift off the ground. Upon further inspection it turned out to be the tail buzzing above 1/2 stick. It acts as if the tail shaft is bent.
Has anybody experienced this before?

Check to see if the tail hub is square with the tail shaft.

Everything on the tail seems to be true and square, visually anyways.

The mesh on all the gears seems to be okay when you spin it by hand.

One of my vibrations was caused by the torque tube inside the boom vibrating with a resonance, when it was vibrating the heli would not be able to take off like you described. I created a 'shim' of sorts in the middle on the torque tube to act like a bearing on the torque tube on a larger heli. This and many more mods were required to simply get mine to fly. At first, no big deal the extra tweaks to get it to work, but after some time it just got tiresome.

This was my post on the matter of the torque tube vibration

Wow, that sounds like a pain in the butt. I hope I don't regret buying this thing.
How do u feel about yours now?

I enjoyed it when it was working and flying ok. But I have moved on from it.

I can make a brick fly and this thing tested my patience and I sold it. After I wasted over 100 bucks on after market parts. They do fly pretty good when they aren't broke but mine seem to not like to be repaired.

Think I'm going to have to see the video on this one.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Update.
A friend helped me with this over the weekend in a school gym.
It turned out that if you "punch through" this bad vibration the heli would smooth out and fly nicely. This wasn't something I tried at home. I hate drywall repair!
A couple of other guys listened to it and said: "Mine doesn't do THAT".
Just another little quirk of the 130 I guess.

Yes, the vibration is the resonance of the torque tube inside the boom at a certain rpm. A lot of the time you can spool through it, The problem is the vibration is still there on an unsupported torque tube even though its not in the extreme resonance zone and the vibration it eats away at the electronics and mechanics when flying and doesn't give you the best performance for your tail gyro and FBL unit.

I think someone here on RR was testing a new 3 bearing tailboom that is made by Microheli for the 130X. Haven't heard anything lately about it.

This could at least cure one of the 130x's tail problems.

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

turboomni, I was on Microheli site and didn't seen anything about a 3 bearing tail-boom, is this some top-secret project?
Would be nice to have one however.

Yep, you were spot on Rappy.

It all makes sense to me now.

I've been testing a 3rd bearing boom for Microheli for 2 months and its held up very well. Very smooth and quite. Not sure when it will be released but would think it should be soon.
