Watch when you rotate if you are rotating about the pivot or about the world axes. So you can hit 'R' 'X' to rotate about local X, or 'R' 'X' 'X' to rotate about world X. (Or is that the other way around...)

As for 3DsMax your guess is as good as mine. There are plenty of resources out there so maybe find a basic tutorial on 3DsMax (not related to creating aircraft models). Should be easy to find.
