Violent tail kick on 7HV with blueline vbar
I hovered my 7HV with blueline on it first time today. 1850 headspeed or something. The tail kicks pretty hard. The gain is set at 50 which is apparently pretty low. I have been out of flying for a while but remember this happening from time to time on other helis, but I can't remember what the fix was. Possibly a more solid gyro sensor mount? I have it mounted on the bottom plate between the landing gear, but that may be too flimsy. Any thoughts? Thanks

You'll need to describe what "kicks pretty hard" means?
When does it do it? Pitch pump, head speed change, just hovering????
What does it do?

Just hovering, nothing else. The tail just randomly kicks kind of like a single axis gyro would if it were not secure enough or getting too much vibration. I'll try repositioning the gyro sensor when I get a chance, but in the mean time, any thoughts? Thanks

I had that problem once and it was with a single axis gyro. The fix that time was shorten the servo arm and all was fine after that. ( of coarse, setting the endpoints and gain again )

That's a good thought. The arm is the length the instructions say, but I might try shortening if the repositioning of the sensor doesn't fix it. Thanks for your input.

This could also potentially be a static hit. Is there a ground wire providing electrical continuity between the motor mount and boom? I have always used a wire to provide this path for the belt static to shed. I use an multimeter to check for the continuity to be sure.Rob

That was another thing I was wondering about. Thanks for bringing it up. The instructions say nothing about it, but I have heard about it. It is something I will do. Have you ever mounted the gyro sensor in the middle of the bottom plate and had any trouble?

I've never mounted below the original plate. I've added a second plate above for the sensor, separate from the main unit.

Well, it looks like it was the gyro sensor mounting position. Remounted and no more kick. Thanks all for your responses.
