Default Budget Coaxial cannot hover after crash

Santa brought me a nifty little 4 channel RTF helicopter, but my heli experience is pretty low, so I went out and grabbed a little indoor 3 channel coaxial to practice on.

Last night, I crashed it, and knocked off the dog bones that connect the flybar to the top blades. I reinstalled them, it looks good, and the system looks symemetrical, so it shouldn't matter if they're attached backwards.

Anyways, now, when I try to just start hovering, the heli will elevate a few inches, then it starts to drift backwards and towards it's right side. Half a second later it starts correcting, swerving forward heavily and rotating, then the blades strike.

Is there anything I can do to try to fix this? Any common problems that would cause such symptoms? It's a pretty cheap indoor flyer, but I'd like to get a bit more life out of it if possible.

I have a video uploading now... Link will be http://youtu.be/3dwvOJDDRpc

from when it is still, it looks like one side of the flybar is heavier than the other, check to see if the weight is still in the bulge of the flybar, considering it doesn't seem to shake to bad it might not be that, or the weights are just pretty light, anyways it should all be perfectly balanced
