First flight after vibration issues were solved (Hughes 500MD)
My son did the video from his ipod so its not the best quality and this was our first time doing this with him filming and me flying and posting on Youtube, I thought he did a great job following it with my not so smooth flying. Before this video the tail would shake, skids and missle launchers, but now its all good after the paddle issue was solved.......

Looks great! I really like how slow you keep all of the forward flight, the slow turns and relatively shallow descents etc. They really make it look like the real thing.

Glad to see you found the source of the vibes.

I have built a number of FunKey H500D and E fuselages mounted to various mechanics and any vibes I had ever come across were related to the mechanics rather then the fuselages themselves.

Thanks guys for the comments. I have built seven Hughes 500E models and D and they all had vibes, on some I solved it right away and some I never could get them right no matter what I did. This was one of those that I actually gave up on until I just happen take a look at the paddles and found the problem, still not a fan of the MD version, don't like the big nose on the front so I may part with the fuselage and build another 500, if I start flying more again.D.

Most of the time its the simple things that can drive you nuts, I have used paddles like that I think they were MA , I never like them I looked for thicker paddles to slow the rate down. Sounds like the weight inside paddles moved, keep and eye on them, might shift again.E5s and E7se,and a 766, Roban bell 222 800 superscale,450 bell 4 bladed head,gobby 380and 420 ,180cfx
