Hey Dave,
I shot some video today of the tail control problem before I removed the 4-1. At some points it looks like the gain is set too high, but for the most part it wants to rotate in only one direction. Let me know what you think. Meanwhile I'll get those in the mail.
Thanks again,
Joaquin
Holy cow, that's crazy! Let's see:

I don't think is a problem with the crystals (or antenna) since the other channels seem to work fine.
You said both of your 4in1 do the same thing? Any high voltage lines (battery, etc) close to the 4in1?
It seems to be a consistant "pulse" (which could be from the gyro or the tail channel).

I love a challange!

-Dave

Hey Dave,
The other 4-1 is much worse than that. It's just totally random. There are no changes to the stock locations of any components andnothing unusual as far as battery wires go.
They'll be in the mail tomorrow. Good luck with them!

First pass, Ijust had enough time to look over both boards and get a feel for where everything was. Some things similar to the Falcon 40, other things much different. First pass, everything physically looks ok. I'll put it on a scope and see what happens.

been slammed at work, so I haven't had my usual free time. I was able to, at least, put the gyro on the scope. Doesn't look like there's any issue there. Things should be better this weekend.

No problem, take your time. I've been really busy at work too. I know how it goes. In fact, I haven't flow in probably a week and a half. It's a horrible thing!

I know, I know...
Well I'm getting a break from work (we've been working 12 hr shifts) so I'm going camping this weekend. Truck is loaded, the trailer is packed and at 4:00 I'm outa here with helis in hand! I'm hoping for good weather so I can fly both the HB and the Belt CP.

Hope your trip (and flying) was good!

Latest update:
Got a little time last weekend to poke around.
The good news is that I didn't see your problem...
The bad new is that I didn't see your problem

I need to set my TX channels to be more like the Esky (right now, roll on my TX is the throttle, or tail, I not 100% sure).

I'll do that, and run more tests.
