Then I remembered my early days as a kid, wanting such a thing but couldn't afford it - and bought me my 40th birthday present - a RC-Heli
That was May.... now, ~ 20 Helis and 4 quads later still addicted - getting speeches from my missus and searching places to hide my spare toys

Women just don't get heli's/quads. They'll waste all day on Facebook but consider the rc hobby a waste of time.

I just know women in general. They operate with a completely differnt flight controller. And their gyros aren't always set. That's all I'm saying.

My job saved me some helis - stuck in trees.... so called my crew for an exercise with the turntable ladder
I remember my Grandfather saying "it's a poor job that has no perks" .

I just received a v929, it wants to take off forward or reverse on lift off.The quad is very unstable or unresponsive when yawing.The board is has 8 plugs on it.My v939 is a much better flyer then this beast, but will not allow the use of an 808 camera.

Everybody complains about V929 board with 8 plugs.The normal V929 board with 4 plugs is on a different level and plays very stable.

Where did you get your v929 with the 8-plug board? I got a BNF from "wi model store" and it was 4-plug.

Many complained previously that ,when ordering even normal V929 controller, as spare part, they received the 8 plug variant.Maybe many BNF's was build previously with normal V929 controller.

Yeah, one of them was me. I searched all of aliexpress, found a seller that has a photo of 4-plug boards and ordered a couple; they sent me 8-plug's instead. I'm using one of them on a v939, seems to work ok thus far. I tried an 8-plug on a brand new v929, does not compare w/ 4-plug version.

What is the purpose for the other 4 plugs? My guess is for LEDS. I need to find a 4 plug board from some ware, or find some wide open space to fly it with the existing board.

I for one didn't find any difference between the 4 and 8 plugs boards.
Mine have the same flight characteristics.
On the other hand I've fount a BIG difference between the first TXs (with fake right button) and the "new" ones that comes with the V949/939.
When I use the old one with the "8 plugs" the flight is erratic.
When I use the new one with the "4 plugs", the flight is normal.

How does the new one(TX) respond with the 8 plug board? I am using a DH9116 TX currently, that I use with my V911s.
