    Flies like it has weak batteries.

    I've replaced all 4 motors with fast Micro Motors. I've done the test where you put the throttle at 100% and hold the quad with a motor down to see which one is weak and all of mine are strong. I have several batteries and they all perform the same in the quad. I've also reset the accelerometer. Quad requires low 40s to maintain a hover.

    Fast.

    I lubed all 8 bearings and then realized that I had the camera on while doing the hover test so its not as bad as I thought but still not like I think it should be and the wobbling is still there after doing flips (couldn't do flips at all with the camera on, would just wobble all the way to the ground). I do admit my judgement could be skewed since I've been flying my Aton lately.

    The" test " needs to be done in expert mode to see if you have a slow motor . In the self level modes all motors will spin at the speed of the slowest one .

    This is incorrect with respect to a dip test.

    Agreed. The dip test will speed up the motor(s) below plane so that the craft will level out.

    I stand correct. I've always checked mine in expert mode by pulling the right stick to each far corner and seeing how each motor pulls individually.

    That would work too! Thanks for that suggestion.
