Gday mate welcome to the forum.
It sounds like your shaft is still bent somewhere or your blade tracking is way out.Maybey even the flybar rod needs a
look at.Does it wobble around in circles or shake in one spot?
Sorry i cant be of more help but hopefully someone with a bit more know-how can help...good luck
Oh have you had it for long?I have a v3 and love it

Enough to keep it at the same altitude but not so much that it climbs, not so little that it decends, and more than it takes for a hover.

I would say you just have to feel for it. I''ve had my LamaV4 for a couple months. If your in a level hover, you can gently give right thumb up and counter gently with left thumb up until your blades are at maximum pitch and you can''t go forward any faster. If you give full left thumb you''ll notice she''ll out throttle your pitch and climb (mine will climb with a vengeance at full throttle, quickly even at full forward pitch) Keep in mind you will constantly be adjusting your rudder to keep it going straight. It''s not as much thumb work as an FP, but it''s thumbwork nontheless. Mine has taken a beating, I recommend upgrading it to aluminum rotor head, swashplate etc and throw some Extreme blades on her, much better than the stock stuff that you''ll end up breaking alot. Mine flies around the gym like a beast, and can take a beating.
