"I know I shouldn't but i did. I removed the main blades and spun the rotor head with the motor running. when RPM gradually went up - there was no bouncing and shaking as described earlier. But the fuselage did rattle and move some. I looked at the main rotor assembly - it is shifting side to side - As I increase throttle it becomes more violent. I'm going to disassemble and inspect the main shaft and feathering spindle."

Maybe you should check the measurement on the fly bar and also check to make sure that you have an equal length equal length of threads inside the paddles for both sides. That could be throwing you off.

After replacing the feathering spindle and main shaft I did "Again" started the motor and spun her up without the blades. There was no more shaking of the fuselage and the main shaft and rotor head assembly was steady. Ther was no shaking in the tail and only saw minimal vibrations in the fuselage. I'm wanting to give her a try again with the blades but now I'm working on my Electric. I don't know when it will be but I'll keep everyone posted.
