It quite likely doesn't hold at all because you have not set collective to tail pitch compensation in the advanced setup section. That needs to be around +12 or so for most helicopters.

Does the helicopter tail jerk to the right when adding throttle, add +12. If it jerks to the left, add -12.

Of course, double check that you've got zero pitch on your tail at mid rudder stick. It should hold fine and easily give you an insane tail wag with a gain set far too high.

Also make sure the RC deadband and gyro deadband values make sense. I've got mine set at 20 and 4 or so. The default 40 is far too high.
