Default Blade 130x woes

This is my first 6 channel heli, and I'm so frustrated with it, it is now for sale. Despite proficiency on my simulator, I can't seem to stop stripping the gears on the tail rotor. My last crash smashed the boom, and I noticed that a bunch of other parts needed replacing, so it's pretty much new now, except for the canopy.

With all the new parts, it still vibrates LIKE CRAZY. I can't figure it out, it's smooth until I take off, then it vibrates like a . LOTS of tail wag as well. I'm out of ideas, somebody please take it off my hands!

Sounds like tail rotor blades aren't balanced to me.
It could be a bent tail rotor shaft too. Alwo check the
feathering shaft on the main rotor.

I sold it long ago, and I am now a confirmed MCPX fan! I also bought a MSRX which I thought would be boring, but it's actually a great, FAST little heli. Perfect if you don't have a need to fly around inverted
