Also - how good is the tracking to follow, so far I have this

Yes, tracking number is only available for products (not orders) over a certain value. I'm not sure what that value is, but I know I get tracking numbers for $34 goods from BG.

Couple of quick questions about my HFP 100 FS. First, has anyone come up with a good program for the Flysky version yet? I'm running a 9X flashed with OpenTX, and I've got what has to be the most basic program ever, all channels at 100%, no expo or D/R, and a linear throttle curve. It flies fine this way, so I've chosen to spend what little time I have flying instead of messing with my radio program . But if someone has come up with something cool, I'd like to see it.

Second, it has the tiniest bit of tail wag, not enough to be objectionable, but noticeable when hovering at eye level. Anyone else notice the same thing, and if so, what if anything did you do to correct it? Assuming it can be corrected, of course.

Really enjoying this bird, but it makes my V911's seem REALLY tame and boring . It's also convinced me that I need one of the new Blade 200 SR X's when they make it to the retailers, a larger brushless version of this sounds like the last heli I need to buy. Not that I'm planning on NOT buying anything else, I'm just going to concentrate on multi-rotors instead of helis . Later.

Hey Wedgehog, I certainly understand what you're saying and don't really disagree, so please know my statement was not against your comments, just sharing how it works in my brain.

By the way love your username and avatar. I used to have a pet hedgehog. Best pet I ever owned!

On a different note look what showed up today!

Man the batteries are super small! The 100 I had came in a brown box so I don't know what the packaging normally looks like but I really like the box of the 80. Very nicely done design work.

I am also on the wait for 300mah nanotech, but I wonder if they won't be too heavy for the HFP80, with a risk to burn main motor ? has someone tried them on a long period, and what do you think ?

I have set of them I use, on average I get about an extra minute of flight time, and more pop through out the flight. I have not had any issues after 10 flights each pack. They are good for sport flying, but HCP80 feels the deference when attempting 3-d flight.

I don't know if the weight will be a factor or not. I've read that some of the guys with the hcp80 are using the nano techs so I guess I'll see. If they are to heavy I'll just use them in my x1.

you can confirm that this helicopter is compatible with turnigy 9x radio without additional modules?

Thanks!

I ordered the help in your link on february 12 (exactly to find out you question for myself) and it was supposedly sent from their warehouse in Sweden a day later (at least the tracking number states that's where it was sent from) but I have not heard or seen anything about it since ... And is stays "untraceable" (is constantly gives an error message every time Itry to track it)

when I was flying my V955/HFP80 I was using the stock Walkera Mini/SuperCP and the UDI 250mah LiPos and it flew fine with these, and as guessed.. the NT 300mah will be pushing the weight limits and affect the flying characteristics the most on this bird. Actually the GiantPower 200mah from BG worked pretty well on my V955!, just not great for the much more demanding HCP80.
Realise that on these featherweight micros every gram counts... especially for the HCP80, the V955 with it's larger blades is more like a "delivery van/truck" than the "racing car HCP80" and can carry and cope with the larger/heavier LiPos much better.

HS 180mah 15C = 5.5gr
GP 200mah 25C = 5.8gr
WK 240mah 25C = ~7.5-8gr
UDI 250mah ?C = ~8.2gr
WL 300mah 25C = ~8.8gr
NT 300mah 45C = ~9.2gr

Hey no JL, I was just joining in the conversation, I had no problems with what you said or anyone else, I was just giving my point of view.

I have a family of them living under my shed, been there for years, although presumably these are the children of the children. I don't know how long they live for.
I tried to choose the name Hedgehog and the forum said it was taken, so I changed it to "W" because from the side they are a bit wedge shaped

Woohooo something to play with, well I hope you have more luck with yours than I am having with mine, didn't get it from Banggood and it was knackered when it arrived, so waiting for spares at the moment.
Keep us informed with how yours turns out mate.

I took my HCP80 out for it's maiden yesterday, with a new set of blades on her... despite the minor oscillations when coming out-of-flight, and the increased directional momentum from the new blades... she flew pretty nicely... and she boogies!
To use the MicroHeli NanoCP bullets on my 80 I had to use a 2mm washer per grip and tightened grips till snug. I believe trimming the blades to "stock" HiSky bullet sized blades will allow better flight from the non-adjustable RX.
The GiantPower 200 didn't do tooo badly in the cold.....

[QUOTE Wisshie;27684876]Totay I was glad to see a delivery from Banggood.
But when I've opened my package I came to the conclusion that Banggood sent me to wrong item.

I had ordered the Hisky HCP100 6ch mode 2 white TX for 74 Euros and they have send me the HFP100 4ch heli worth 45 euros...


I've send them a email regarding this wrong delivery, now patiently waiting for an answer.

Does anyone had the same problem with them? And maybe now what to do more than sending an email? I've made multiple order with them without any problems, for everything a first time...[/QUOTE]


Well, Banggood offered me a solution. Sending the item back wasn't a option due to high shipment costs on my side so 2 other options were given. 1. I keep the heli and they refund me the difference +-30 euros. Or 2. I'll keep the heli for a big discount price and the send me the right item I've ordered also.
After flying a few minutes I decided to keep the HFP100, it's an amazing and challenging bird. I just made the payment for it and got a honest price and my HCP100 is on its way to Belgium.

So my opinion about Banggood so far... GREAT!! That's what I call customer service. Ok I bought a heli extra this way but hey, it's a great heli and got it for a good price. Me happy and Banggood happy looking forward receiving my HCP100 and also ordering the new wl brushless 6ch heli.
