macem thank you for the information! Tail wag is still there, I think I have to live with it...
Also high prices are still there...
It means that I will give a shot to Eflite products.

To HiSky and your resellers: you lose customers, lower the prices (before WL Toys will release their bird).

... i guess: to late. the new wltoys v922 seems to be already here, produced from benma (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...732214&page=23).

good for us - it freaking looks like a rebranded hisky fbl100 (or turnigy fbl 100) - that means declining prices...

We also need a no-TX version, without module, so the price to be kept low.

Will soon be available. But just now we are very busy to take care of customers, following up spare parts, add new items to the web shop, smoothen up the web shop and deal with our suppliers.

Just one advice, to those who want to try the RF module on other TXes than suggested. Be sure that the pluss and minus on the power cable is correct. If not, blue smoke will be the result.

Would you like to tell us what will be its price?
Most of us we've already a TX and want to buy a second heli to fly continuously one after other.


PS. Give customers the option to have their items shipped with HK's registered airmail service.

HiSky, the skids of the FBL100 are too fragile.
I think you've already know this and I believe that you have to improve/strengthen the skids in order to keep your customers. I'm really tired of buying skids....

Does anybody know if the skids of any other micro helicopter fits on FBL100?

First.

HK Reg Air Mail does not allow LiPo batteries in the parcel. There will already this weekend be implemented a freight solution using HKRAM for spare parts up to 350 grams. But not for the LiPo batteries.

About HiTec Aurora. To be sure of this, email this question to salg@throttlestore.com

The landing gear will have this problem in low temperatures.
The choice is to either have a soft landing gear protecting the helicopter from further damage. Or make the landing gear stronger and then stiffer, and then damage the electronics in the helicopter.

The landing gear has already problems in either temperature so keep in mind my advice.
I love Mini CP's skids, they have the appropriate stiffness, keep the center of gravity of the helicopter low and offer excellent landings.

... the landing gear takes some bad treatment at any temperature without problems, guys - this is a flying-object and the landing gear is for landing under control and not an inflatable safety bag...

of course at low temperature, abuse will be punished a little bit harder, ....

Must has taken some kind of a beating.

The good news is that all spare parts are available, shipped with low cost air mail.

And the complete FBL100 RFT is now on X-max Sale for 99 USD.

simple power booster ...?!

could anybody try to confirm the effect of boosting the power of the hisky fbl100 (turnigy fbl100) i noticed by simply

raising the throttle trim of the non-programmable tx to max?

usually throttle trim stands still on minimum. but i remembered my old esky honey bee kings non-programmable tx which shows the same effect - one could boost the power by raising the throttle trim after spooling up the heli in normal mode. of course you have to lower the throttle trim to minimum after landing the heli to stop the rotor spinning and prevent dangerous situations at the next start...!!
macem

ps: could be throttle is limited in general at the upper end regardless of the position of throttle trim. i cant say that anymore because of my weak lipos and motor ...
