I have a stock DH9116
Can i bind it with a Turnigy9x OR a turnigy9xr ?

When the Blade 200 SR X come's out can i also bind it with the Turnigy transmitters? or do i need to buy something extra?

I think the 9116 will bind to both but I don't think the rudder works properly. I changed my board to a v912 so I could use my FlySky Radio but that has issues of it own. Good Flying,

Just a thought, anymore I try to keep my FP birds heavy, especially in the nose.

It seems to help in the wind a little bit.

Are you doing it to transfer more weight to the front? That is never a bad idea on our FP's.
Yes, Im just trying to lighten up the tail end alittle because I use a HBDD tail motor and every gram I can cut back there will help. I also have a plastic F46 tail fin coming that Im going to try to make lighter and mod it to fit on the 9116.

(I also just ordered the carbon fiber tube's on ebay that I posted so well see how it goes.)

In addition to using carbon fiber for the boom I also shortened it by 3/4" to help negate the additional weight of the HBDD tail by bringing it closer to the c.o.g.

Check it out. I got bored yesterday and decided to move the battery and PCB on my 9116. I think it turned out pretty good. I cant wait for those E-Max ES9051 servos to get here so I can try this thing out. I already had the E1003/Fx059 head installed so this should really top off the performance.




I used a scrap piece of thin sheet metal that I cut to 1.5" x 1" for the battery tray.


I even made a patch cord to make it easy to unhook the motor.

All my crazy wiring, but I did not use a single ziptie or anything.

Heres my flying canopy with extra air flow. It really helps for keeping the motor cool.



I used Velcro to stick down and cushion the PCB. I also added a little epoxy on some parts of the board like the Gyro and the antenna crystal to keep them in one piece.


Heres my Honey bee direct drive tail motor with wire cap.

And heres my "on the shelf" canopy looking all new and shiny.

Nice job Jerm357. Great attention to detail.

I like how you protected the HB DD wires.
Nice work

Now you just need to add the heat sink for better looking & longer life tail motor:

That motor runs somewhat cool on 2S.

I cut a Honey Bee CP3 heatsink down to less than half to help keep the nose down.

The stabilizer is from a Wasp V3.

Thanks.
The wire cap was from the stock tail unit, I just cut off a few small parts to save a little weight.


I already have one of those heat sinks, but I took it off because it was not needed... These motors run pretty cool on the 9116 and I rather give up the weight instead of having unneeded cooling.
