Is it possible to fit a brushless motor there without changing the PCB? Or a better motor/ tail setup perhaps?

New guy that needs a little help

Have been following this board for a few weeks. You guys provide some great tips and mods for the v912. thanks

I have the v912 brushless and yesterday was out flying and crashed it nose first into the ground. Noticed at first flybar was bent but got it straight. Looked over it and everything seemed ok. Turned off and back on went to throttle up and the motor seemed to be working fine but it wouldn't lift off the ground. I gave it full throttle and the motor was going like crazy but know lift. Would the motor be the problem or maybe pcb board?

Hi Brian MG

From your description, I would change the motor first, and if the problem is not resolved, it would be the PCB.......

Could you tell be the sound if the main rotor was going the "normal" speed?

If you can't tell, then after a significant crash, you might have any number of problems. The V912 is big enough to visually inspect for most problems. This list is a portion of my normal pre-flight for every session:
1. Check the teeth on the main gear. If there are any damaged teeth, replace the gear.
2. Closely examine your blade linkage. If one of the dogbone connectors is broken, stuck or missing you don't WANT to get it in the air!
3. Is the main shaft damaged or are any connections loose?
4. Examine the blades for nicks or cuts, or any bends. Do they move on the pivots correctly? Are either out of "normal" alignment?
5. Take a good look from the tail looking straight forward. The tail boom should be exactly straight and should be exactly in line with the main rotor shaft. While there look for damage, dirt or misaligned tail motor mount or blade.

It is still possible that you have a bad motor or PCB, particularly if the motor ran after the crash (did you engage throttle hold before hitting the ground?).

I hope the damage isn't too bad. Let us know what you find.

I turned the throttle off just as it hit. I did notice the servos seem to work fine one minute then maybe not the next. I did look over it numerous times and did not see anything wrong that you listed above,

Hi Orangebird,

Thanks for the suggestion. Is there someone who has already modded their V912 with the Walkera tail setup??

I want to know just to make sure i take that route and if its really worth the trouble. Any videos??

Thanks
Jake

Just a thought is it worth learning how to fly CP on a Walkera Master CP or still go with the V977?

I've been looking to find a decent beginner CP heli - something not that tiny, cheap to repair and tough.
