Default Learning to fly with 125 fp

Ok guys I just bought 3 of these littlehelis and im trying to learn how to fly. I know these arent the best helis to learn on but I am having fun anyway. So the fp is going ok outside I can kind of control it and keep it from crashing but I need alot of room and have trouble hovering in a small area. I can not hover in my living room for more than a few seconds before it drifts and crashes. Any suggestions on how to hover this better? Am I better with quick blips to keep it in place or slight smooth adjustments? My next question is I also bought 2 novus cp's both used. One flys well I honestly think it hovers better than the fp the other is insane I dont know what the problem is. It spins out of control as soon as it gets in the air, spins hard left and ends up in the ground about 4 seconds after lift off. I adjusted the remote all the way and it didnt do anything for me so I am just looking for some suggestions on what to look for.

Any suggestions on how to fly these and hover them would be great. I know 450's are a better way to learn and I have one butI dont get to open it until xmas and I do plan on getting a sim so any other suggestions would be great. Thanks alot for any help.

Check for bent or broken parts;balde balance.The one that spins to the left sounds like tail rotor issues. Check for stripped gears or bent linkage.

The only way to get better is through practice. With practice, you develop your motor skills and gain the confidence you need to avoid those silly errors that lead to crashes. As for the heli that keeps spinning, sounds like you might have a burnt out tail motor.

Good luck with it and keep putting out posts as you improve. I am taking the same route. I have a gym at my church where i believe i can put in some good stick time witbout the wind being a factor until i get better. I handle a coax on sim very well but not somuch with the cp birds....anyway good luck.
