Default balance issues

Guys, I hope im in the right forum. I few weeks back I bought and wrecked an esky honey bee. I changed most of the rotor head parts and now I'm unable to balance the rotor head. I've pinpointed the problem down to one blade after tearing down and building up the rotor head a step at a time. At the moment I'm using the mexican universal tool, duct tape, to keep it in balance, flying....just run ups. By the way I'm no rash from the raza please. Can anyone help a brother out. I'd like to get this thing up and flying before I die.

I would check the spindle to see if its bent (shaft between the blade grips) and then the main shaft. Another thing to check is tracking. If you know that its the rotors that are causing the problem why not replace them? Also duct tape, as great as it is, isnt really suited for balancing rotors, I use electrical . If all elese falils I would check on the esky forum on here.
