Newbie: Vibration after crash, big lama

Hello all, super newbie here, was up and flying and really having fun until a hard crash in the driveway. Thru the forums, i first learned that my swasplate seperated so I was able to finagle it back together, now I have it close to flying again, but I have a big vibration when flying, almost makes it uncontrollable. I have all new blades on, body off, slow-medium rpms appear normal, heavy rpms show considerable vibration. I am unfamiliar with diagnosis and tuning of any kind. Thanks.

Check you flybar and make sure it's straight. but, I would think it's your shafts. Either the outer or inner. Spinn up your motors with no blades/flybar and watch the center shafts (outer and inner) any wobble there will give you bad vibrations...
