I have two GWSDFs. I keep the blades pretty loose... so they move freely. They fly great. I find that the death wobble comes from one or more of the following issues, which takes a little time to learn how to identify and fix:
Is your main gear/shaft bent?
Are the paddles aligned and sit precisely the same distance from the head?
(Can you spin up the heli without the main blades on and have zero vibration?)
Are the blades perfectly balanced for cog, and dynamically? This is really critical IMHO.
Is the tracking off?
Anyway, I step through these and seem to have consistent success, so I am really not a buyer of the idea of tightening down the blades or other remendies to advance the blades. I have been running stocks and like 90s both loosey goosey. The problem with tightening the blades is you may snap them in a crash.

add to that frustration, what does BTW mean???
to stay on topic, when trying to screw a bolt or allen screw into hard to reach places (like the two allen screws that secure the motor to Trex v3 frame), rip a piece of tissue or paper and wrap the tool head, then insert the screw, then guide it in place, it's alot easier for me than to put the screw with my big fiingers then try to fit the tool into the screw and screw it in.
here's a pic, speaks for itself

Flashing is the plastic that ozzes out of the mould when you make plastic
parts . This will bind if you dont remove it . VACaver took the head of his
Blade CP apart and scraped or cut with a #11 blade the flashing off the
head parts , and as he said
