I've tried several diffrent things, but still have a slight wag...I think I've learned to live with it The tail fin vibrates a fair amount...so definitely some kind of vibe going on, but haven't been able to track it down yet...

Best way to deal with the tail wag I find is to fly the freaking heli. I just bought this to learn collective, so I am hovering a fair bit, but its not so bad that I would think about sending it back. I read about it I knew it would be present, its not like a guy cant find out about this issue in five minutes on his phone.
If your buying a heli to hover in front of your face, and a little to a lot of tail wag is going to bother you, this is not the heli for you.

If you want a balls to the walls powerhouse 3d trainer(cheap parts, no 130 tail issues), that suffers from a bit of wag at times, then this may be the heli for you.
I have never seen a tail motor controlled heli that did not exhibit some degree of wag at some time during the flight, always just accepted it, sort of a trade off,less parts, simplicity, cheap, you get a bit o wag.
Jam the stick forward, it goes away.

PS: after a read I need to add, I did not mean to sound attitudy??? so rather than rewrite.... I just want to make the point that sometimes we overanalyze and obsess over things that maybe shouldnt matter so much, this is one of those time, I think. If you find yourself worrying about the wag more than having fun flying than you either need to accept it or work to change it, and thus I guess we come full circle to the point of this thread.
Have fun and good luck.

I find if you increase the bite of the stock tail rotor it will help with the tail wag and the tail blowing out

Preach on brother Graiskye!

Many expect too much from the MCPX Brushless. Just fly it who cares if it wags a tad. If it holds rock solid in fast flight and through complex maneuvers I don't care if it wags every now and then. Hell I can get a VBar to wag stick banging.

The MCPX Brushless is a very good heli especially for the price and the fact that its almost unbreakable when flown over grass.

It is capable of any maneuver I'm brave enough to do on a 90 sized heli.

fwiw...

Using the KBDD t/r blade, dynamic balance of mains, and vibration isolating main board has gotten rid of 99.5 % of my wag....Have gain set at 75 on DX7.....These tricks work well on mCPx and Nano as well....Requires patience, but my BL now has a tail working noticeably better than my much modded 130....
