Xmas over, Out come small helli's

The wife thought it was really nice that I took the tree down while she was out friday! saturday morning we took down the rest of the Christmas decorations. In the afternoon she went to bingo and out came the small helli's. I have three WL Toys 911's, #1  are on the same transmitter and require that I readjust the trims. I flew all three of them they are fixed pitch with a 7.5" main rotor. Once they are trimmed they are quite stable and easy for a novice heli pilot to fly. The next one I tried was the little green one. I think it is a WL Toys 933 it has a 9.5" main rotor. It has swing blades, a semi-symetrical airfoil and collective pitch. When the battery is full it is quite unstable and fast reacting. Every time I hit something with the main rotor and over loaded the speed controller it shuts down. The only way to reset it is to unplug the battery and turn off the transmitter, then rebind it. The next one is a SANI 6050. It has identical features and the same faults. The next day the same scenario, she went to bingo and out came the small helli's. I started with the MJX9. It is a fixed pitch heli with a 9.5" main rotor, it flies a lot like the WL Toys 911 and it looks like the attachment and control of the main rotor is identical to the WL Toys 911. I flew it several times. Then I tried those two collective pitch ones. They are a real pain in the butt. Then I tried the LAMA. It is a scale looking heli with a 15.5" main rotor. It flies a lot like the WL Tots 911 and the MJX9. I get one session with about 8 to 10 min flying time. It takes about two hours to re-charge the battery. The last one was the GT Express. It also has a 15.5" main rotor. This is the one I have been having all the trouble with. The transmitter has no liquid crystal readout so I have no idea where the trims are. After about five minutes of short hops I managed to get the trim about right and the final three or four minutes were ok flying.
