Hey Guys,

I have this problem when I raise or lower the landing gear the bird shakes back and forth. It also does it when putting it in travel mode. Im not sure why its doing it as I can see nothing obstructing the screw or movement.

I did have a little brush with a tree but broke a prop and landed on the ground. Without any noticeable damage. It seemed ok after that and then started exhibiting this a few flights later.

Other wise it flys great with no noticeable issues after the gear is up. Where should I be looking or is this a send it back kinda thing.

It kinda seems like the lead screw that pulls the legs up and down might be bent. Have you watched the screw up close while raising and lowering the gear? Either that or the nut is sticking on the screw.

I am going to take a stab at the this.

1) Check and balance the props.
2) Check the alignment of the rotors. Remove props spin the motors and watch for any wobble or imperfections.
3) Check the main gear screw for dirt, dings, bent threads. Make sure they are clean and properly greased.
