Cool, thanks for that.

that was the case for me. Suddenly my flying times were halved and the upward thrust wasn't good. Thought it was the batteries at first also.

Remove the motor from the frame and spin it and listen closely if you can hear anything odd. Mine had a very slight chirping noise when you spun it one direction.

Thing i noticed with the batteries when using a proper charger was the capacity put back in.

Batteries were at 3.75 volts prior to charge so not fully empty.

The 120mAh took 122mA and the 130mAh took 134ma, i guess the batteries capacitys are actually greater than they are markd up as which is a bonus.

As an Example some other Nine Eagle 1 cells i have 150mAh take 130 to 140 for full charge,
2200mAh 3 cells usually take 1800 to 2000 depending on starting capacity after flight, different makes i use in Multiplex FunCub etc..

Just ordered a red one from y'all got express shipping. I'm in Maryland.

Bare BNF does not come with batteries, charger, spare blades nor manual. It is usually shipped with whatever packing the seller wants to use. It should work with the TX you already have.

Rucky you.. 'ring 'o fire cabbage' seems kinda pricey.
Then you get to pay even more for shipping as well? Double bonus:-)

I hate UPS I paid $22.00 for parts, and $19.00 for UPS shipping because it was the cheaper way offered. Well the UPS guy turned up today with my parts and I have to pay them another $22.65.

Even though I liked dealing with the store I bought from I wont be buying from them again just because of UPS raping people for more money than quoted

The price is $69.99 including shipping for 2 v911's, 4 batteries, 1 transmitter, 1 charger, 1 main blade, 1 manual. Their RTF price is $44 so for $26 more you get another heli and 2 extra batteries. Seems like a decent price.

I usually buy from Aotop which is a sister company to Firecabbage.

Where did you buy from that has a UPS option? I also ordered that way once and learned about UPS's 'brokerage fees'. Never again.

I'm beyond trying to use a pot. Just trying to get transistors to work with a switch like my other V911 TX. It's not working. At this point, I have retired that TX.

Thanks for trying to help, Sir.

I ordered from The Heli RC Store, I liked dealing with them and will again, but I will never use the UPS option again because of UPS's hidden fees. From now on it will be USPS Express, because it cost the same or less and no hidden fees.

Once the delivery driver left I call UPS and got the brokerage fees reversed because they didn't disclose them. Still the simple fact that they tried to add them in under the covers angers me enough that I wont deal with them ever again. Hell if UPS is the only option for something I need delivered I will walk it there first

Rip it apart and solder two 2.2K resistors.
