The size of the blades on a 450 make it more stable than a micro, just a bigger rotor disc of lift, air dynamics. I don't know why your micro would zoom off when you applied rudder. Is your micro balanced front to back and trimmed out? I know with my fp micro, it always wants to dip forwards, so in a lot of moves I have to give it a little backwards elevator and that seems to keep everything stable. Mine's a piece of junk so I don't know if it's balanced anymore... the blade grips are shot, I've shortened the tail due to a crash, blade tracking is impossible, it's on it's last leg. I just fly it to mess around.
