Has anyone else managed to get this heli to fly well? I got one for Christmas and after two days I've pretty much given up trying to get it stable. Basically it has these problems:

- I can almost never hover. Even with extremely careful, tiny throttle adjustments, it's always either ascending or descending. The exception is when the battery starts getting low, I can sometimes hold an altitude.
- It won't trim. Once I get it as well trimmed as possible, it will still want to fly in a circle while also rotating (usually in the opposite direction).
- If I attempt to fly forward or backward, it develops a deadly oscillation that I can't recover from. Even a very brief stick input will trigger this.

Is there a trick to taming this beast or should I send it back?
