Default Wobble

I managed to get a good deal on a used one, with the Canadian Dollar tanking I could not justify buying a new one but found a deal so I grabbed it

its in great shape but seems to have a bit of a wobble when hovering, like a forward and aft bounce, is this normal or is something bent on mine?

the thing looks cool in the air I cannot wait to get it outside just not sure if the wobble is normal or something is damaged.

thanks

I don't have any wobble hovering, at least not in calm conditions.

Thanks for the replies

Blades are all loose. however I did notice one is damaged a bit so I will pick up more when they become available in my area

I'm hovering it inside so I'm wondering if its airflow bouncing off stuff.

I hope I can easily resolve this because it does look cool in the air

I did a trim flight and checked the gains all are factory

Inside it seems to be affected by air bouncing, much more than say the 130x. At least that's what I hope, that it will fly much better outside.

Does anyone know of a online dealer that ships to Canada economically and has parts for this in stock?

Horizon has them but to ship them here the price almost doubles and that's after converting to the Canadian Dollar.

I did a flight this evening before the rain comes and it was a little breezy. I was seeing some wobble and little forward and aft bounce. Have any one else had this ? I have about six flights on it with no hard landings.

I flew last night and all flew perfectly. It must have been the way the wind was blowing.

Thanks..
