Default little advice needed please

hello ive just joined here today just to ask a few questions as i dont no anyone who has experience in flying rc heli's, now i started off with a mcx heli which was very easy to fly and was enjoyble to use, then i got a 2nd hand honeybee cp2 which i could not fly! each time i got it off the ground it tilted and smashed into stuff, so i gave up with that, then i got a nine eagles pr02 which was a little harder to fly then the mcx but again didnt take long to master, now ive just got myself a buzzfly 3D! as soon as i got it out the box i was chuffed to bits, so i started my practicing. i made sure it all set up and got it on a laminated surface, without taken it off it seems to work fine, moves in the direction i tell it to, ive also done a few bunny hops they went fine too, so thougt id take it further so got it off the floor about 2ft but each time it wont stable its self it just wants move to the left and backwards, trimming dont seem to sort it either, could this be because of ground effect? should i take it higher off the ground? its just it feels really very hard to fly, does anyone have any tips for me for the buzzfly 3D! i want a Gaui mini zoom next when ive got to grips with this buzzfly 3D

here is a RC flight school that may help, and yes , get your heli out of ground affect as soon as possible, at least 2 ft high and Welcome to WATTFLYERS

also setting up and balancing your heli is very very important, there is some good videos on Youtube on balancing your heli, properly balanced, helis are much easier to fly.

If you feel overwhelmed by it all, you two more good options. Get a Blade MSR. It's stable and durable. Repairs are inexpensive and easy. Or, especially sense you already have a CP, get a flight sim to practice on. Crashes don't cost a dime.

This is all in addition to the good advice above. I've never flown a single rotor Heli ever and I got an MSR and have had a blast. I've crashed it pretty bad at times and still working great.

my nine eagles pro v2 is very similar to the msr i think, and im sure theirs something wrong with the cp2 as i did buy it 2nd hand, ive set it up countless times, think one of the servos is broke, i would like to get a simulator and im sure i can get one for the buzzfly tx, had noticed on few other post on here about how good the sims are. thank you

i do put it on the ground? and it does fly its just bloody hard to control haha but it does have a balance problem, it too heavy at the front and theirs no-way of moving the batt closer to the boom, so going to try blutac as soon as i get my new blades by the way what do you mean by "look at the com"

it hard to be slow , you just want fly.. the better you can hover the better in the long run.

learn as much as possible , nose in, figure 8, tail in circles...etc...

i am no 3d guru but do fly scale heli's which are heavier and DON'T bounce

co -axials are great for nose in.. but cp's(collective pitch) are what we all want.

those heli commands do work($500) but are expensive and are quite fun to set up.

the best advice.. FIND ANOTHER HELI flyer period... find a hobby shop, go to ama online ..tower hobbies even has a web finder sorted by state for clubs that have a website.

good luck
