I think I've got my blades straightened out now. I got them balanced and then strapped the heli down to spin it up and check the blade tracking. The blades were apart almost 1/4". I got that fixed and fired it up again while strapped down. They seem to run nice and smooth and level with each other now. I took it out for a test flight and it was very smooth while spooling up. No jumping around like before. Looks like I got that taken care of.

Now I have to figure out some other issues. While test flying it, It was hovering nicely for about 20 seconds when all of a sudden the heli started oscillating side to side quite rapidly. I was able to land it and took off again to see what it would do. Smooth at first, then oscillating again. What can I do to fix this?
