Default heli wobbling after head upgrade

Hi,

the last part that was upgraded was the main housing and the swashplate.
now my 450 has the complete align metal head.

I also put in these new dampers - hoping for a smoother hover
http://www.readyheli.com/TREX_450_SE.../dampeners.htm

now the whole heli seems to be wobbling (?).
means that it is not really stable hovering and the tail shows movement into all directions, mainly nick - some roll

any idea? I checked the angles of the blades and they seem to be fine.
could it be due to the new dampeners, that it is not so forgiving to minimal wrong angle settings anymore?
any ideas are welcome


thank you all,
Rello

Blade dampers too stiff! Use softer dampers or remove shims as nessary so that the spindle can move in the rotor head.
