tail bobbing on my 500

Found another reason for tail bobbing. Today my 500 would start to bob sideways at the tail briefly a couple of times which is odd. So I set the gyro sense a little lower and it sort of cured it but still the odd tail bob. Had a good look at the tail and noticed a hairline crack at the end of the tail boom. Give it a push and it would make the crack wider, lucky only one side of the tail rotor housing was cracked or else it would have been crash time had it all let go at once. So when it comes to tail bobbing look for cracks too.
