After adding the 2nd bearing in the rotor side of the tail case my 130X is flying great as well. No vibration at all now and tail holds rock solid, even in fast backwards flight.

My 130-x started to get strange jitters on the tail after about 55 packs but after reading a thread on helifreak i dismantled the servo and cleaned the silver contact strip which was fairly dirty. The problem is now cured and after 4 packs this evening i now have 67 packs on this heli and it is still on all original parts with nothing broken. It really is a fun little heli.

What did you use to clean the contacts? Servos on my 130 are still OK, but ones on my MCPX are due for a cleaning I think. Getting a bit of the "jitters" in the servos that I never noticed before.

I used a spray can of electrical contact cleaner i bought from a hardware shop. Rub it on with a cotton bud and then wiped it nice and clean with a rag. I think your fellow americans on helifreak say they get it from radioshack.
