I am impressed that it fly much more smoothly and quietly than the old v911

but does banggood do anything about warped pieces in shipping?

Good luck with trying to get BG to do something about the warped parts. I find BG's customer service to be Jackell & Hyde, on a couple of shipments that never showed up, they refunded right away; just recently I had a defective item sent (Helios 100), and it's like pulling teeth getting them to do anything. First they asked for a video, I did that, then they offered a full refund if I send it back out of my own pocket (they know as well as I the high shipping cost makes this an non-option), I proposed for them to send me parts that are possibly bad (transmitter & pcb), they balked and asked me to "go to local shop and check", which I gathered to mean to get additional prove/diagnosis to determine which parts are bad. And each correspondence is a day delayed (not their fault of course) due to difference in time zone, so that adds to the frustration. Paypal can't/won't do anything because its been over 45 days since I paid (another reason not to "pre-order" anything), so I'm out of any recourse that has any teeth. I'm just counting on them being reasonable enough to simply send me another pcb (since a forum member has kindly offered to give me his tx that he no longer needs).

Just received my V911 today...what a hoot. I have not really flown anything in two years and now that the Wee Man is getting a bit older, and showing interest in flying i decided to resurrect some of the old birds I have collecting dust in the basement. One of them is a Guru-Z which has minimal support these days so I figured I would use the V911 to limber up the fingers a bit so that I do not burn through my stock pile of parts. So I started off with a couple indoor flights and at first I was a bit all over the road but it started to come back to me pretty quickly. I then charged the batteries again and took her outside where there is pretty much zero breeze and started flying circuits and I am impressed. First off she already is flying smoother and the tail is not so "on/off". Pretty impressed with the FFF, she goes OK for being so small. I started flying more aggressively and I did get a couple strikes.....is the the blades or the flybar? It sounds like it is hitting the canopy but there are no marks. All in all I can tell this thing is going to get a lot of airtime....so fun.

Cheers,
Jim

User KKDDMM did a bunch of v911 flybarless experiments.

Scroll down his blog:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=398394

Check out this blog post for instance:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1687249

He's Japanese, so his English isn't the best. Thus he's not able to participate in the capacity I am sure he'd like to. KKDDMM have done a bunch of good mods. he has a bunch of different helis. I only wish I could understand Japanese better.

And I wish I have KKDDMM's budget for RC toys. Take a look at his blog for all the stuff he buys (seemingly on a whim).

Someone guessed it could be on sale in October.
Yeah I read on a Chinese forum that October is the possible date.

Yes, I saw this the other day, amazing really... looking forward to them getting to market, if they are as tough & reliable as the v911 they will change the market in micro's again like the v911 did. great quality & low price cp would be incredible

I've been waiting over a month for my yellow V911, perhaps it should be called a Y911 as it's not a WL product.

As far as the WL CP flying, I wonder if the camera was held upside down.

'Cause it's more expensive, and perhaps heavier.

I have yet to crack a single landing skid.

Doing funnels indoors are likely to break skids. Don't ask how I know.
