battery durability

There are plenty of stories where people have salvage their birds after some mishap so we know the birds are durable. Here's one for the battery, I came into the office this morning and looked at my v911, then realized I had left the battery in all weekend (or longer). Unplugged it, tested the bird w/ fresh battery, flew fine as expected. Charged the completely discharged battery just for the heck of it, took longer than usual for the stock charger light to go off; plugged in heli and, you guessed it, performed perfectly like nothing happened. But to be on the safe side, I marked that one so I can keep an eye on it in the future.

Confused!

I bought this... (suppose to be the new version heli with the newer battery that has the smaller connector) Am i right or wrong?

Sku # 14002982

http://www.tmart.com/New-Wltoys-V911...e_p160636.html

in the description

"Presently we have two versions of V911. This is the latest one that is different from the previous one. The batteries, landing skids and charger boxes of two versions are different, and the other accessories of two versions are the same. You can click the following photos and select suitable accessories, if necessary."


I also bought 2 of these extra batteries which have the small connector and suppose to be the newer version. and as you see on the first link it's the frequently bought together section..

Sku # 14003004

Today I received everything and the helicopter is the older version.. has the bigger battery connector and batteries with the bigger connector.. the box has Sku # 14002982 on it..

The extra batteries I ordered are the newer version..

Soooo.. should I hang on to the heli and just have them replace the batteries or would you all suggest getting the new version of the heli like I suppose to?

So they STILL have not fixed this!!! It is ridiculous!!! I tried to buy a new version heli from them in OCTOBER and they send me the old one twice within a week, despite promising in several emails that it would be taken care of ...

So much about keeping their promises - totally disappointing ... looks very much like a store to avoid in the future for me !!!

And to answer your question, I would just see that I get some batteries ... but thats me (of course, then you will also need the "old style charger" ...

well it came with the proper charger in the kit.. just can't charge these new extra batteries i ordered.. I haven't read through all the posts to see if it's worth the effort or if i should just try and swap out the batteries for the old style..

If they sent you the old version RTF, then you have two batteries to play with for the time being. Just let them know of the mistake and ask them to refund the money for the extra batteries (w/o returning the batts since reutrn postage would likely be more than what they're worth).

Yeah Tmart screwed me too. And dont think for a second it's a mistake.. Sent me a shipping label but its hard getting to the post office so just ordered the red one since its in the states.. Watch it show up another old version like happened to you guys.

Anyone want to trade a old for new?

Are the canopy on those 2 still interchangeable ?

I managed to get the canopy from the original onto the clone and vice versa, but it puts a lot of stress on the rods so I wouldn't recommend it Maybe if I made a couple of new holes it'd work better, but TBH I can't be bothered. Best bet if you break a canopy is just to order the appropriate replacement
