On the other hand, my brother-in-law has been flying passively in slow mode for about three months now on the same tail-motor with no problem.
Sorry yes a typo the nose of the heli turns right........my bad

I will have to fly it more gently I think hahah.

On the other hand I have my Mini CP coming in the next few days so I can fly my 9116 to get more practice before upgrading to the 6ch.

Now I'm confused. If the problem is that the nose is turning right and you did trim to the left, then it would be the main motor going, not the tail-motor. That would mean that the tail-motor is overpowering the main motor.

Simple rule to remember: nose turns to the right-main motor dying, nose turns to the left, tail motor dying. Good luck. 6 channels are a lot more challenging (get spare parts!) and fun than 4 channels.

This is not unusual, especially in DH9116. The helicopter is heavy and the motor is pushed too hard and gets too hot.

Steve has an excellent post on breaking in new motors in this thread. I never thought about breaking in electric motors. Also, dh's quality control varies considerably; some motors are better than others. Hopefuly, you'll get two good ones that will last.

Is there a more permanent solution than using the plastic pieces to hold the canopy? I've gone through 4 of them in the past 2 weeks from small crashes.

I drilled holes in the pegs and use screws to hold mine in place.

I cut the flybar weight today and I can tell it is so much better. It can now handle flying in windy conditions. I was able to fly it today and even let my wife fly it and she did perfectly(she is new to flying). I used to get pushed by the wind and had a hard time bringing it back. Even by mounting the camera at the tip of the canopy, I could not get it to go forward. You can see on this picture how far I was. Hopefully I won't have to go through that again!

Hey guys, Cahnging the subject a bit. I just got my heli, my first order of buiesness was too take the LED light out (for daytime flying). I saw a video where a guy made a mod by extending the antenna? Would that really help, or is the antenna already in its strongest place? Also, What keychain camera have people been adding?

Been a long time since fooling with this stuff.

Look for new thread on this "Multi LED Driver"
Thanks a lot!
I'm just trying to evaluate the tracing of this board - haven't seen such a thing before.
