Got the V915 yesterday from the USA warehouse. Nice bird but you can tell cheaply made compared to the V912/913. Flys nicely. Tipped a low leaf branch and lost the "jet motor" mounted on the back. Overall I'm satisfied considering what I paid. One thing though, it makes a strong buzzing sound (the prop?)when you hit the tail to turn. Is this the norm?

Mine made such a sound when turning to the right and also at high forward speed. If I held it in my hand and ran it while manually turning it to the left, it made the sound. It seemed to be the whole tail vibrating. There was nothing loose or broken. I first noticed this after changing the stock blue tail rotor for a yellow one. I figured my new tail rotor was out of balance. I pulled it back off to check it's balance. Sure enough, it was way off. I put a few of layers of packing tape on one tip, and the buzzing is gone. Now I'll trim the opposite tip and remove the tape.

when the TX goes to full value like that one of the wires has come off the back of the control gimball, had this happen last night - full right rudder, opened the Tx, sure enough the central wire (there are three) had detached, quick solder and job done = sorted
