I just received two Red/White BNFs from Tmart. They have the old style battery connector. Took 10 days to get here. I'm in West Bloomfield, MI.

Only had time for a quick test, but both birds fly OK after a bit of tuning.

PS. They both have the new flybar, but I ordered a spare flybar and the one I got is the old one.

I managed to revive my original dead board by replacing the crystal (a hunch from my experience breaking and repairing v911's, w/ help from folks here), your board still is a mystery, maybe the crystal also, because the led is not steady anymore, but I get servo response, go figure.

The bird w/ fixed original board flies pretty good, the servos still not as fast-reacting as the v911, but plenty good for my purpose & skills. I tried short flybar w/ msr paddles, reduced porpoising but got the pendulum instead. I look at the Helios as a fruitful platform for experimentation, I will probably never get it to fly as well as my best v911, but I don't regret buying it.

I don't regret buying it, The H100 was a gamble from the beginning. Learned a few things along the way. It is in pieces now spread out over a couple of copters I needed parts for. No waste. Even mounted the canopy on one of my 911s. I cut it down though as it seemed be be nose heavy. I like the carbon fiber shaft though. Real smooth on my V911. Glad that board and TX worked out for you. Did you ever get parts yet?
I just got my V911 board they promised me on my original problem. Thinking I have enough parts laying around - might put another one together

Just checked out your video - almost the same issues I had with it. Does not fly right to me, just my opinion though as others sure seem to like it. I am happy for them.

Yea mine took a couple of extra days also - usually get them in 5 days or less. It seemed that DHL had it for quite some time.
Maybe us southeastern Michiganders ought to get together sometime and scare some dragonflies
I really like my Red and white - did not require any buckle adjustments as of yet (had a little breeze this evening so hard to figure out for sure).

I have to place battery in heli, turn 9x pressing button, then turn off 9x and finally turn on 9x to get it bound. This is every time I remove battery (either manually or crash).
Another thing I notice, once getting bound, servos make noises and are twitching until moving aileron or elevator, from there, everything is fine.
I tried original Tx and it bound without problems and kept it when removing battery and turning Tx off. The problem is only with the 9x.
Any ideas?
With the 9x I turn it on with bind button pressed, after i flip on the switch i let go of bind button, Then I plug in bat to v911, after it initializes, then i flip the power switch off and on again on 9x, and it is bound.

Be carefull as sometimes the copter will spin up if you turn on the 9x after you put the battery in the copter. Had one almost take my head off messing around with the 9x (well not literately but figuratively) - woke me though .

There is a drop down that says download as zip. Unzip to a folder.
You have to have the program eepe to view the file. Do not use notepad.
Are you using the smartieparts board and updating the firmware to ER9x?
If you are not, this file will do you no good. I have some settings I used using stock firmware - just click on my name.

This means, the 150mAh batteries I just ordered are absolutely USELESS, and in searching for more batteries that fit the new receptacle, I couldn't find anything. Im pretty bummed out about it.

Does anyone else have the "updated" battery contacts? If so, have you found anywhere to buy additional batteries?

I mean, I suppose I could return the helicopter and try to purchase one from a different source. But that is such a hassle. Im already going to have to return the batteries as it is right now and wait for a refund.

What would you guys recommend?
You could mount an old style skid?

With the Yellow or the White, Yes!
You will have the same with the v939 quad. Call it "bug" or "security feature"

Hi, look at this! Sometimes things are to easy to see
I unscrewed landing skid to look if i can mount it a bit forward. There is a little piece of plastic to stop the battery! It is glued so you are able to easily take it away! Than just desolder cables and solder it changed back on! Now you're able to put the battery from the nose! Look at my pictures please! No more extra weight, canopy can be mounted a bit more to the back so it looks more scale! It flys wonderful!!!! Now I'm completely happy

I improved upper head again.

I changed the ratio of the bell-lever.
So She can fly better than before.
See my video,She has four blades.
