Check the basic things first (links between swash/flybar/main rotors connected properly, nothing obviously broken).
Spinning wildly (turning left/right) suggests to me that the tail rotor is not spinning at the right speed. That could be caused by a problem with either 1) the gyro or 2) the tail motor. I'd suggest changing the tail motor (though as a last resort, as it involves ordering a replacement part and soldering...) Good luck!
