This happens to me from time to time. On mine sometimes the swashplate like to start coming apart. It is a 2 piece setup. Make sure it is smashed back together with your fingers.

Landings are nothing more than controled crashes

Mine didn't hover well at all out of the box either. Is the swash plate level? I ended up unsnapping the connecting rods from the servos to the lower blade and adjusting them to where the plate looked level. Once you unsnap them from the lower blade, you can adjust the rod length then snap them back on.

First, did you complete the control test as listed on pages 12-14 of the user manual?

Follow this order exactly, as you ALWAYS have to have the transmitter turned on before you connect the battery.

(1) disconnect the motor wires that go into the 4in1
(2) install the battery but don't connect it yet
(3) make sure all the trim on the Tx are centered and turn it on
(4) connect the battery and don't move the helicopter at all while the 4 in 1 is flashing green. This is when the gyro arms and it will affect the swash plate if you move it.
(5) visually inspect the swash plate to see if it's level, if it's not, use the transmitter to find out which servo arm would need adjusting to get it level.
(6) the top of the servo arms are on rod that is threaded. If the swash plate is not level, pop off the servo arm from the swash plate and either unscrew it to make it longer and raise that side of the swash, or tighten it to make the arm shorter, lowering that side of the plate.

If it's drifting right, its most likely the servo arm on the right side of the heli is too low, unscrew it by 1/2 a turn and go from there.

On mine, I had to lengthen the servo arms (both of them) by 1/2 a turn.
