Have you tried to setup expo on your transmitter, or decrease throws?

Try moving the ball-links to the closest hole on the servo arms. This should help tame the controls.

It is a responsive/twitchy heli but can be mastered.
Try adding a degree or two of positive blade pitch at zero throttle. That will effectively slow the headspeed (assume you are using stock TX with no pitch curve capability) and give you a "softer" feeling heli. Make sure your linkages are free from binding, they can be sticky from the factory.
Also try flat bottom blades..will hover sooner and slower than symetrics.

I have added extra wheel collars to the fly bar and that has dampened the heli some what.

I accidently found out that if you set it up with too much blade pitch, it will act slow and sluggish, because it flies with a lower head speed.
Made me feel like I was real good at hovering, but flight times were shortened because the motor is working harder.

Lots of inertia in the rotordisk, tames down the twitchies.
Also, I replaced the RX with my JR Scan Select and used the CCPM functions of the 7202 to reprogram the helicopter.
Took a while to setup but it worked great! :)
Now you can add expo and limits......

You might want to look into getting a head-lock gyro. The E-Flite G90 is now about half the original price.

The stock transmitter failed recently after only a year of flying intermittently. I decided to upgrade to the Futaba 9CHP so I can fly the heli and all my planes. It made a HUGE difference on the CPP. I "dumbed down" the twitchyness from settings in the Tx and I seem to have a more "positive" lock on the heli with no servo twitching whatsoever.
So, if you are flying the CPP on the stock Tx, I suggest upgrading it rather than buying parts for the heli.

I'm with Homme de Fer on this one. There is a thread on RC universe about the setup of a 9CHP for the Blade CP. I did it for my CP Pro.
Just Google "9chp programming".
I followed the procedure (very simple) and it's a different heli!
