I am new to helis and starting to learn on a blade cp, had a couple of not so bad crashes trying some forward flight.Tha blades seem out of track and have a bad vibration.I just put some new blades on and got them as close to tracking as I could(helped the vibration alot) but when I seem to speed it up a little its almost like I see 3 blades and slight vibration while trying to get tracking perfect.Would this mean I possibly bent something,Im leaning toward that but would hate to tear it all apart without some ideas from you guys first.Any help would be great.Thanks!

It's possible you bent the main shaft. You can check by rolling it on a flat surface and see if it wobbles.

I perform precision manuevers called crashes.

Yes it could. But at least you have something to look for when you take it apart.

Might check the feathering shaft (spindle) as well...I often bend that when I break blades.

Make sure all shafts are not bent, there is no play in links and all bearings run smoothly.
