Looks like the tail is bobbing up and down at the lower headspeed....:

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Is your Raptor 50 Belt driven and your Trex 600ESP is TT?

Old dampeners...bobs other way around...new ones seem below 1400 momentarily.

That is part of the reason why the Raptor 50 did not do what the Trex 600 ESP was doing

Check the TT Spacing on your Trex 600
- they should not be evenly spaced

To check your head dampeners grab your blade grips and see if there is excessive play by trying to rock the blade grips/spindle. You can also push and pull on one blade grip, the spindle shouldn't move freely. The end.

Softer damping is the way to go for low headspeed. If you simply replace warn 3D dampeners (all Align kits come with hard 3D dampeners now) with new 3D dampeners they will still be no good if not worse for low headspeed. You can also trim down new Align dampeners slightly so they aren't compressed as much.

Also make sure not to tighten your blades too much for low headspeed as there isn't as much centrifugal force to center them.

60% of the time, it works every time!
