I been flying my spectra and bergen for a while now. I recently dusted off my 1005 and it's way different. the frames look like they are flexing (the upper and lower frames aren't stiff like the other gassers I have) is there a way I can stiffen the frames a bit. I checked the rear four bolts and black threaded spacers and they looks good. suggestions are appreciated.

Those black spacers looked fine years ago when I was searching for vibs.
Closer inspection showed cracks in the black spacers. That area is not that strong when everything is fine. My hobby shop also has a machine shop. He simply made a solid block of aluminum that fit between that whole frame area where the black spacers were and tapped the 4 holes for the bolts. Much stronger and rigid.

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

1005 flexing
I cannot speak for yours but on mine (which was built by and for NASA) all the carbon frame pieces are doubled up. Mine does not twist or flex.

Do you have the metal spacers that sit on top of the landing gear that go from side to side? If not the frames will flex without these.
