Nigel,


In the video I can see an easy 1/2" out of track! That's massive! As long as the mainshaft and or feathering shaft aren't bent (DO NOT try to straighten them!) you should be able to make adjustments to the blade holder linkage to bring that tracking back into spec. I'm assuming the servos have been electronically centered and TX adjusted to require the smallest amount of trim to properly level the swashplate. You do use a swashplate leveler I hope. If you have everything right at the swashplate and no bent or damaged parts it'll be easy to bring that tracking back to where you can safely hover. I learned a long time ago not to ignore the basics with a heli. If you do even the micro helis will slice you to shreds. I have a few scars from those tiny little buggers to prove it......
