Don't let them get you down. John Salt from has always said the best thing to train on is a 450 size heli with the proper set up and tamed down for a beginner. If you go to his website. he has a training session with 10 lessons to get you hovering safely. If you follow his instructions, you should be able to hover the helicopter without crashing it. Also check out the RADDS School of rotary flight and do those 10 lessons. Both of these trainings teach you basic controls and the goal is to get you to hover your CP heli without any damage to you or to the heli. All I'm saying is it can be done, but have to accept that what you learned with the coax is not going to transfer to a collective pitch helicopter. you may truly be worse off, that I don't know.
Good luck though, do let us know how you do, but be patient with yourself and take the time necessary to set up the bird properly, to tame down the controls and to do the lessons until you learn them.
