I too have several flybar dings on my tail pipe but that is the only visible damage so far. Been a bit cold and windy lately. I do want to get some video shot here when the conditions improve.

It was ordered over 2 weeks before the date on the tracking!

Welcome to the V912 Club! Looking forward to hearing of your experiences. I think you will be pleased! If you don't mind asking, from which vendor did you order? Just curious..


Cheers,

Jim

I am up to 32 flights with nothing exciting to report and my birds are still going strong. I fly one and hold the other in reserve except when I want to fly back-to-back flights, so I only have about 6 flights on my Mark II bird. I do have some flybar dings on the tail boom of the Mark I bird thanks to some pretty rough crashes when I was attempting to fly in 18 mph winds. Emphasis on "attempting". Helipal made good on my damaged transmitter and sent me a new one. It arrived in a little over a week - not sure how it got to Texas so fast as I did not ask for any special shipping - thought it would come by the slow boat. Still waiting for delivery of my Mark III bird which was shipped on 1-25 on the slow boat from a different vendor.

Still haven't heard of anyone flying the V9113. I suspect it will be a lot like the MJX 645.


Cheers and keep 'em flyin',

Jim
There may be a dozen or so V912 owners who have posted on this thread. I'm still waiting on the slow boat so I cant really contribute much yet. I can share some of the stats I collected when I was researching my options for FP helis:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...Hc&usp=sharing

Its a publicly shared google doc, if you want to add anything to it feel free.

When the price of the V912 went down last week I thought maybe they were lowering the price in anticipation of the V913 becoming available soon. But the price went right back up and also no V913 yet so that was probably wishful thinking.

Great! I hope they will post their impressions/experiences.

The price is changing all over the place. I wonder why? My first two V912s were $66 each I believe, can't remember exactly, but at that same vendor (Helipal) the price is now $75. My last order for a V912 was from AlieExpress priced at $54. Ehirobo, which I know nothing about, has the V912 priced at $49.95 on their website today.

I think I paid $109 for the MJX645 and that was without the camera! You can easily beat that price today.

You really have to shop around.


Cheers,

Jim

^ I ordered a V912 from ehirobo on Feb 2nd at the $49.95 price. My order was processed on Feb 2nd and shipped on the 6th, they have been great with emailing updates. I just tracked the package and it arrived in the US on the 8th. It is currently in processing status I assume at customs. Will update once I receive.

It's a banggood order. To be fair to them, it was ordered with a (slow)boat load of spares and other stuff and a couple of those items were out of stock.

You da man tonyt! Thankfully, "most" of my crashes have been in trees, bushes, and soft grass so still haven't broken anything. Yet! This thing is tougher than my V911s. I have burned up a couple of those babies.....

That's good to know! I still have both of my V911's working, but hopefully with the increased size of the V912 I can abuse it outdoors... alot

The nice man from ParcelFarce paid me a visit today


I was pleasantly surprised to find it came in the original WLToys packaging!



Not so pleasant was the UK weather today...


I've run 3 packs through it in my back room, hover was near perfect out of the box despite a not level swash.
One thing you all failed to mention was the noise this thing makes - it's awesome! The sound of the blades is like none of my other birds!

Speaking if which... here are a few of them








Does anyone know what the top right button on the TX does? When the 912 tx is bound to my 911, that button does exactly the same thing to the 911 as the 949 tc top right button. So I "assume" the 912tx will be able to flip my 949...

I too received my V912 today, sadly, the Tx is busted. All three of my birds are grounded for one reason or other.

Looks like the helicopter itself is undamaged but the swash seems really loose. Maybe its my paranoia.
