Default vibrate

My t-rex xl has picked up a vibration. I have 10 flights on her with no mishaps. (YET) I am running the wood blades from the factor. I never run wood on my raptor but they seem to work on the t-rex. I have retightened everything and all is good. The question is: can wood blades come out of balance after a while?

Default RE: vibrate

Anything can change with time & use. Is it a 'LOW' frequency vibration(Main rotor) or 'High' Frequency (Tail Rotor).

Did you BALANCE the blades, Are they TRACKING correctly, is the FLY BAR TIGHT, perfectly centered,Balanced, etc.

MUST check all these things out ANYTIME something seems not quite right, and certainly a close inspection frequently. Have had about 20 perfect flights with my new SE since completed last week, though a tail blade caught a loose ant end & snapped off, & the tail pitch control arm snapped at the bearing for ??? reasons. Took 10 Min to replace, and still flying well, but I still make it a habit of checking EVERYTHING every several flights. Can't got wrong.
