you might just need to give it some more throttle and get it up in the air. If it still wobbles real bad in the air you're gona need to balance it and check to see that the main shaft is straight.

Another thing you might want to check that each blade is the same tightness to the rotor head. I notice My HBFP will have a bad wobble when the "tightness" is not matched. I like to run my blades on the tight side, others like loose. Either case make sure it's equal.

Like DriveWRX
says keep the blades a bit on the snug side but a wobble while it's in flight tells me something is way DriveWRX
out of wac.
Make sure the pitch on both blades are the same.
The padless should be just as level as you can get them.
Check the distance fron the head to the metal grip on the paddles.
They should be exact as you can get them.
When you have a wobble while in flight you can be sure it's one of the parts that spin fast
