Hi Guys,

Hope some one can help. I have noticed just recently that when in a hover I can see that the tail is jittering a bit and not sure what is causing the problems. Take off, Flight and landing no problems. One thing I have come across is that the tail assembly is not firm got a little bit of play, would that cause the jittering? Timm

The tails do tend to "jitter" or shake when you're hovering, esp without the stabilizers. (the diagonal bars running from the frame to the yellow horizontal peice on the tail) I'm not really sure how to fix it, other than maybe take some of the plastic from the packaging, cut it into thin shims, and put them around the tail boom where it connects to the frame.

Greetings,

Thanks for that. I will have a try and see. Had the 107 for 2 weeks now and flying every day what a lovely little chopper. I do a lot of Helii flying on FSX, so to do something like this is great. Timm

Yes. If you get it snug it should stop.
