Swift Nx Spool up Shake!!!!

Hey guys, first post in this thread. I am a new Swift nx owner with three flights on her. The second flight on it the belt loosened up and the thing spun out of control and I crashed. I finally got her all back together, but I went to fly it today and on spool up the swift starting shaking uncontrollably at about half full head speed, the blades struck the ground and broke both plastic blade grips, i'm sure it bent the feathering shaft, etc.... My question is why do these have such a problem with shaking on spool up and spool down. It kind of makes me regret getting this after reading all the reviews and no one having a solution to the problem. I didn't even get it off the ground today after a week of rebuilding from the last crash. It is an affordable heli and that is why I got it but maybe I should have waiting a little longer, saved more dough and got something else? I don't know. I just want to get it flying right. Any ideas? Thanks.
Jeff
