I am still working on hovering but getting better. One thing I noticed is that the heli's tail seems to drift. Anyone know why? Seems to get worse as battery dies and heli gets harder to control.
Also plastic table seems to help with hovering.
My little Genius CP does the same thing...
Solid with fresh battery, then tail starts drifting as battery weakens.
Throw in a little trim now and again to keep it straight, if necessary.
