The CX2 will (should) hover if you let loose of the right stick.

i thought you were going to crash watching the video lol. i would practice hovering with the idle up at all times, it will be more stable and responsive to your inputs. before trying any tricks, i would make sure you can hover tail in ans nose in without moving the heli out of a 3-4 foot circle. for tricks i would say multiple hours on the simulator before you start trying it irl. thats a nice bird but replacing pieces will add up real fast. looks cool man i want to get one myself. in the video were you standing off to the right side or were you near the camera?

Assuming you haven't messed with the gyro in the 3-in-1...

Center your radio trims and check the swashplate to make sure it's level both front to rear and side to side.

If it isn't, remove the servo arm and re-install it as close to level as you can (splines will have an effect on this, no doubt). Then adjust your linkages from the servo arms to swashplates so that the swash is level.

Good job I learned with a friend a few years back on Kyosho Nexus .30's we bought 4 of them and gave it a shot. Then Move up to a TT Raptor 50 SE

I never had the balls to fly the 50, I enjoyed putting the CX2 to much

Yeah I hear ya When I am on the simulator or messing around with other smaller Helli's it is not as bad but as soon as I throttle the 400 up I start 2nd guessing my abilities That is why I am going slow with it
