Raising the rotor speed seems to fix the wobble!

No idea on engine!

Is your glow plug heating correctly. Dull glow is no good needs to be bright. If it is working correctly adjust your low needle setting so engine starts up straight away, You may need to richen up the bottom needle, or lean it out, either way the engine wont like to start if your too far out. Was the wobble there before installing the upgrades? Change back to your original setup and see if it goes away, at least you'll know kinda where you are then. Finally, like Happychappy says crank up the head speed, yours maybe way to low. Just a few thoughts, hope you get it fixed up.

Good luck

Try this

take off the flybar stiffeners...and see if it goes away...if it does then your stiffeneres are throwing the head out of balance.

In life there is no spacebar!

problem solved

adjusted the low end needle and so far starts and runs good,
also added a little more head speed,
as far as the shaking goes rebalanced the main blades
checked weight of the stiffaners blade holders paddles and
got them all weighing with in 1 gram of each other ,
put in new feathering shaft and so far no shakes going on.

Thanks guys
John
