I checked the main screws and they are in the holes in the shaft from what I can tell.... Any thoughts? My Lama has had Extreme Skids and tailboom put on and a new canopy.

Thx for your time,
As I said, follow the Klodikes leveling tutorial. This tutorial is meant to get the swash "level by eye" using the pushrods for both the AIL and ELE. When this is done, now you start the process of "fine tuning." Just because the swash "looks" level it still might not fly right. The tutorial is only meant to get you in the ballpark. It's important to get it as "mechanically" level as possible.
IE: My swash has a bit of forward angling, hovers hands free with NO TX trim what-so-ever
