i feel your pain man...
i just got my new racquet like a month or two ago (thats new for me) and im still having trouble adjusting
hitting the rim is a pain
someone at where i practice told me hitting against the wall is the best way to stop hitting the rim

Why not just pratice on your timing? If you keep hitting the frame, then theres a problem with your timing. Sometimes switching from a head heavy racket to a headlight racket will take time to adjust to the timing.

keep your eye on the shuttle, it helps
we all hit the rims but practice will help alot

Hitting the rim is not always that bad. It wins me plenty of points most of the time when it goes over the net
But really, if you're hitting the frame all the time, take the time to practice your timing.

it all comes naturally with practice, practice hitting clears, its easy to hit sweet spot on clears, then move on to other shots.

One coach I studied with told me that when your opponent hits the rim (on a defensive shot between partners), it's one way to know that you're placing your attacking shot in the right place.
In your case, I'm guessing that it's a matter of hitting more shuttles until you become more comfortable with the timing.

I want to learn how to hit the rim at will. Imagine the deception.

i keep hitting the rim as well but it just takes practice and good concentration on the shuttlecock.. if you have a good sight on the shuttlecock added with timing, you won't hit the rim at all.. it just takes practice.. I barely hit the rim anymore but i still do.. hehe.. all you need is practice, perseverance, and patience..
