Update Blade CP or buy E-Flite Blade SR or 400?

I am flying a CX3 coaxial and want to step up to a slightly bigger Heli.

I have an original E-Flite Blade CP that uses a 800 mA NiMH battery (9.6V). I have never successfully hovered the CP. I had Batteries-Plus make a new pack for the CP and it won't even lift off now. So I am thinking do I add the hop-up kit and buy a 11.1V LiPo and try the CP again (~$50) or sell the CP for parts and buy a newer Heli. I have read most of the threads on the E-Flite SR but still leaning that way. If I could find a deal on a used B400 I might go that way.

Any suggestions?
