Please can I have some advice.

I have got an Eflite Blade SR, and while flying it last night, I landed it in some tall grass and it toppled over. I thought to myself that there couldn't be anything wrong, but when I spun it up again it shook like crazy.
I initially tried to realign the blades, but one was so much higher (when spinning) than the other that no amount of tinkering would get them level.
At this point I replaced the blades with a new set, and they are level
The only problem is there is still a strong vibration present when starting up and flying.

I appreciate there must be thousands of pages devoted to this on Runryder, but although I have spent approx 1 hour searching, 'A' I am not sure what to look for, and 'B' a lot of the help I looked at I couldn't relate it to the Blade SR.

Please can someone help, I guess we were all newbies at some point.

99.9% of the time when I have a blade strike, I have bent the main shaft. It doesn't take hardly much to tweak it and cause vibration. I always keep some around and if it is anything more than a very minor strike, I just change it.

If it has a feathering spindle check that too. you said one blade is spinning higher than the other. Tracking may have changed.

My buddies did the same thing...The swashplate became seprated easy to fix just make sure to check that there is not a big gap between the two halfs, they should snap back together. Check both spindle's and make sure the servo's are working correct.
