I think you are rotating using the local axis in the top one, and the global axis in the bottom one.

To solve your problem, use the local axis when keyframing

So in order to rotate around say, the x aixs, instead of RXmove mouse, use RXXmove mouse

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the help guys - I tried the RXX but still wobbles %$#@!. I am rotating it on a custom axis in the top one but when animated it uses something completely different. $\endgroup$
