Hi Dilberto, I have heard that when the tail grip bearings start to go, they cause a tail wag. Apparently, this is very common with the 450 size helis. Tarot makes tail grips that have thrust bearings that are said to eliminate that wagging/bearing failure problem. That bent grip link sounds like something that could happen in your move--maybe you just didn't notice it right away.

As far as the frame is concerned, I wouldn't worry about it as long as it is doing its job well. Replace any bent parts and go flying. Just my thoughts.
