The main rotor blades are out of adjustment. I read the manual and it don't say much on how to adjust. The problem is the main rotor blades are not inline with each other, Is something bent or is there a way to adjust. Does the pitch control link pop off of the knuckle, do I need a specail tool?

Yes there is a special tool, i believe they are called ball link pliers. I would think in your case you should be able to get the link off without them. Maybe if you twist while pulling a little it should come off. Just be carefull, if it is too hard then you may want to get a set of the pliers. Once you get one link off do as the instructions say and adjust one side only till the blades are in line. You will also want to mark the side your are adjusting so you can go back to that side if you don't get it the first time.

That really looks like a bent spindle or something broken, not something out of adjustment.

Don't bother trying to adjust anything, change that BADLY bent spindle first.

helpless- did you recently crash the thing?? Tell the story.

But by the look of the picture no adjustments will fix that.
It's seriously bend spindle. take it apart and
a) try and straighten it. Soft hammer.
b) or screw it (not worth your time) and buy a new one.

You'll never hammer a spindle straight not to mention once it's bent it's been weakened. Buy a new one.

Nah, not on a Blade CP. I've straightened bunches of them. It doesn't even have to be perfectly straight for it to fly ok.

The force on a Blade spindle is not going to tear it apart, not even if you cut it 90% through with a hacksaw. If it was something bigger I'd agree with you tho.

The one in that picture is way too bent to fly though.
