Thanks for the reply, yes it flew perfectly at first, had to adjust the gain, and give a few trim clicks of cyclic but other than that it was great. I did follow the trex 450 sport manual when I re-assembled the feathering shaft. When I was originally building it, I just backed the screws out and applied threat locker, so I cant say if it was in the right order at first..

At first I thought my problem was with the feathering shaft. I thought maybe it was too tight and therefore stopping the flybar from moving freely, fixed that. My blades were slightly off balance (one had a small chip taken out when it was ejected) fixed that, and ordered a new set of blades. I do test my shaft s by rolling them. Both were fine. I think my difference in pitch was because of my trim, set trims to zero and the blades track better now.

I am going to give it another flight today, if I still get the wobble I will try to increase my throttle. I think you are right about the wind, when the wind kicks up the wobble increases in intensity.

Thanks again for your help.
