I buy them from ClubHeli for $7.50, and their shipping is very cheap.

The main gear and tail boom mount look the same. It appears that the 'tilt feet' on the left skid are cut off for the photo shoot.

Trim Settings: Course vs Fine
  • Course: adjust the servo to swash links 1 full turn

I don't get it, your tx can adjust your linkage?

Not the length of the linkage, but the resting position of the servo arm. Accomplishes the same thing.

The TX is constantly sending out updates for all 4 communication channels of the v911 TX. As you move the control sticks the TX sends out digital codes that reflect your intentions. The constantly updating codes will change from the initial digital code for the idle position to effect flying control. Adjusting the digital trims adds an offset value to the default idle position value.

I think this is another clone of the V911, maybe the canopy will fit?

The Original vs The Copy
  • Clones can be good because all the parts are interchangeable while in the case of copy cats not all of the parts are interchangeable.
  • Clones and copy cats can be bad because they can have a negative affect by diluting the profitability of the product and possibly crashing the whole venture.
Competiton can be good if the product is not driven into the ground.

Do you need to get a module to use a Turnigy 6x or 9xr with the v911?

Now, I've only encountered with the earliest version of the V911, and I'm not familiar with the other revisions. How do to tell from that picture and know that it is the "original" V911?

My skids have bumps on the left side. But this one doesn't. This H911 also seems to have a different and perhaps improved flybar. The weights on my flybar is not as encased as this one, and they love to auto eject (pain in the rear end). Is this the so-called "old style" batteries?
This is the new-style flybar. The weights aren't encased, they're just smaller and the flybar is slightly lighter. I had one eject on me yesterday, so it might still be an idea to fix them with sellotape or glue.

There's 26 photos on xHeli website. The picture above is clickable and will take you there.

Anyways, the PCB looks like it has a WL marking on it.
Yup, definitely conflicting info there. Best bet I suppose would be to email them and ask - unless of course you have both types and don't really give a monkey's

Took my yellow and white birds out yesterday to try the camera out. Unfortunately my neighbour spotted me and, since flying helis while talking German with a wierd Scottish accent isn't my strong point, this is the result . Just kill the sound and fast-forward the boring bits, as I haven't learned to edit and add music yet. Still need to practise the camera angles too, but it'll come . For 8 bucks I find the camera isn't too bad in daylight. Just lucky I had a usb cable for my camcorder, as it kept losing contact with the computer when I used the original cable.
The sound also isn't synched to the video. Any advice?
Happy flying guys.

Anyone know how to correct the V911's left turns? Right turns are ok, but left turns want to make the heli fly backwards.. Now even worse with the E-sky canopy.

Just add some forward elevator when making left turns.
