Default CAP 232 hard to Hover??

I have had several CAP 232's and I found them all hard to hover. I hover a number of other models without a problem but the CAP's always come out unstable in a hover.I am wondering if it's in my set up. Down, Right thrust or something else I just don't know. Any suggestions?

I'd be willing to say that if you move the CG back a little it would hover easier. I had 2 caps, a 40 and a .60 . They both needed their CG moved back beyond the instructions limits. If you do move it back, move it slowly with a lot of test flights. Keep your speed up on landings with an aft CG also.

My CAP's a doddle to hover, infact it's a doddle to anything with it! The hardest part is the approach! it just floats and floats and overshoots!
