Shaking and wobbling
Since i received 101hero and started printing i noticed a great deal of movement in the frame so i decided to make a few adjustments. I placed it on a thick cutting board and hot glued the whole thing, including the controller. I also reinforced the top of the printer with couple of wooden sticks on each side and the movement of the extruder is much more stable since.

Some of the movement could be caused by bad linear bearings.  I had to replace mine because of inconsistent leveling and found that it cleared up a lot of the movement issues.
