It is evident from the video that the model stalls first, then crashes, in all the attempts.

Motor/prop may be generating enough thrust but to fly, a plane needs to attain proper flying airspeed. So perhaps plane has not yet attained whatever air speed it needs to fly (under control).

Even if the motor/prop produces enough thrust to prop-hang the model, the model will only hover (as in 3D) if the model and radio are set-up properly and under the control of a competent 3D pilot.

Planes will not hover by themselves.
The aileron is offset for compensating the left roll.
But the airspeed could be the problem.
