V911 Binding - Battery charging

Binding:
Transmitter off, throttle lowest
Power helicopter
Power transmitter quickly while helicopter red LED is blinking fast rate
Helicopter solid red LED (not blinking) if binding success

May have to try several times. You have to be fast.

Use a digital voltmeter to check battery.
Fully charged = 4.20 volts
Try a different USB source on a different computer or try charging from rear of transmitter.
Charger red LED is on while charging. Goes off when charging complete. 30 to 45 minutes.

"the red light blinks then stops"

The helicopter red LED blinks, then stops.

Does it blink fast, then blink slow.

Does the LED blink, then turns off

It should blink fast, then blink slow, but not go out.

If it blinks, then stops blinking, and remains on, then it is bound to transmitter.

The very "early" ones said CORTER, which is something that has been "corrected" since ... however, most of these stores (if not all) just dont change the pictures because of something as "minor" as this ...

Damn good price for BNF but packaging doesn't look like it would last the trip to Aus.

There are plenty of other vendors who sell the V911 at a cheaper price. Just go to aliexpress.com and do a search for V911 helicopter.

batteries drain faster

Hi,
After the fist week I realize that the batteries last only 2/3rd of the original capacity/flight time.
First week I can fly about 5-6 min with the original WL batteries and 4-5 min with Turnigy ones. Now the WL last only 3-4 min.
I use the same copter and I think I fly the same manner/intensity.

Any idea what is going on? Have anyone noticed the same?

Thanks

Just for the record
dx.com use the very same database as dealextreme.com:
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/v911-4-...-orange-127661
and DX (the company behind) has a very good reputation among DIY folks.
OK, I admit, it had - until the new beta site:

PS: aliexpress is not an option for my poor european fellows because of the horrible (25$) shipping cost

About the european shipping costs of aliexpress: I asked one of the sellers for free shipping and they said OK! I know many countries are not included but it's worth asking! I didn't end up ordering from them but I did get a positive reply from a seller saying they would ship for free.
