Default hand taming my old boys

hi all, I have two males, about 5/6 and one about 3 years old. they are not hand tamed despite my efforts.
However, since they started exploring the bottom part of their cage, they have gotten braver, less bothered when I got to do stuff in their cage.
Id like to hand tame them since i'll have the time for consistency with my summer break coming up. Id also like to let them fly in my bedroom.

Should I try to tame before letting them fly or the other way around. The times they have gotten out they flew into walls (they were fine).
Id love to let them have free flight but obviously their safety is priority. They fly around in their cage so i know they have control and muscle so thats not a worry. I just think they could have fun if they had the confidence to fly and not just be panicked.
