You might check the ball attachment to the blade grip. A loose ball link could cause this

Check for warped blades and then tighten them up in the grips so that there is a similar amount of friction on both blades and so they won't fall when you roll the heli over on its side. Out of curiosity do the mixing arms and the washout levers have bearings or bushings?

Bolt on a set of Carbon blades and see if they stay in track. Get a set of 600 Align blades. FB Blades are relatively cheap now with everyone going flybarless and check into a set of ball bearings for the Rappy. They help with issues like this.

If its a fly bar head remember to check the paddles and mixing arms. Check the tracking from multiple orientations. If its a paddle issue the tracking will change as you rotate the bird.
Also a Possibility taken From raptortechnique.com

1. The flybar control arms (the 90 degree arms against the see saw hub) are loose due to the set screw threads stripped or the set screw was not on the flat spots on the flybar. If the threads are stripped just take the inside metal hub out then rotate it 180 degrees and re-insert it for a new set of threads.

"ok ya got the bigger ring that slides on 1st then the thrust bearing, does it matter what side the trust bearing lays on the big 1st ring? thiers 2 sides"

Typically, Thrust Races are 'sided'!!!

With the pair of bearing surfaces, you should find one centre hole smaller than the other. The 'small holed' bearing face should go nearest the blade holder retaining bolt head. (On the outside)

The Ball Cage and the other bearing surface should rotate freely on the Feathering Spindle.

Think it was stated earlier - but dont forget to check flybar paddles as well when you set tracking- its just as important.

Congrats!! This brings back lots of great memories as I learned to fly on a Rappy 30 with woodies!! No good sims then or little electron powered junk....

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Do your self a favor and put G force head on it . This head makes all the woof go away. So many things and cause issue . Swash ,pitch servo ,balls on grips ,loose rod ends ,grips ,bearings in grips . Look at servo if arm is plastic or servo is weak with plastic gears this will throw blades in and out .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)
