I'm flying a 48" edge
When i hover, it seems like I cant hold enough right aileron, the plane feels super sluggish, and eventually will tip over to one side no matter what elevator/rudder inputs i give.it's really hard to describe. do i need to add more power?

Check out the clinic videos on hovering. My best tip is to learn it from an upright harrier. Start transitioning it into a higher and higher alpha angle. Eventually you'll be in the hovering attitude.
Also a slight wind does make it easier since you won't have to contend with trying to counter your torque as much.
APC 14.7 is a bit much for the hacker 16M
