Did you replace rx with the V2 rx?

I assume you are talking about a BL main motor (and not BL tail motor as well). Try first changing the tail motor and make sure it spins freely (try blowing on it and it should spin). Sometimes the little shaft gets bent. You should remember to oil all the bearings including the two on the tail or wear will ruin them.
Next try reducing the pitch so lift-off occurs with higher head speed. Check your swashplate hasn't partially separated as this will give you more pitch than you want. There are a number of transmitter settings and I won't bore you with that, just reduce the pitch by shortening the appropriate linkages that control the pitch angles.
It is important your blades track well and are balanced. Any vibration will throw the gyro off making the tail erratic in both directions.
The weight of the blades can affect tail holding as well. Stock blades are lightest but damage easily on hard surfaces. I like using wooden blades stripped of covering and lead weights removed (fill the hole left with balsa and sand smooth, plus balance)
Mine has the old V1 receiver and base model transmitter.
Cheers Eric
