Blade 180CFX › Tail doesn't like left turns. Bad shudder.

I finally got a chance to wring out my 180cfx today. Didn't notice anything until I went into a left hand funnel and the tail started shaking really bad, kind of like too much gain. Funnels to the right seemed just fine. After it first started, it was pretty easy to make it do it in any right turn.
Is this a common issue? Any known fixes? I haven't read a whole lot on the 180cfx and don't recall anything like this mentioned.

Thanks for any info,
Matt

Key words "too much gain". Turn it down just a tic.

I got a chance to fly a bit Saturday. I turned the gain down several times. I am now to the point that it barely shudders but the tail won't hold anymore. The gain on my DX9 is down to 50. Tail was always rock solid to the right till I lowered the gain.
Not sure where to go from here.

slop?
The tail pitch slider gets sloppy fast..I already replaced mine once..I have fifty flights on it now and it needs replacement again.

I do a great decending funnel!
