Your criteria for best would appear to be cheap and easy to fly and other beginners like it.

anyway now, jokes aside (after having slept on it for a night ...)

from all the micro fp's I tried (and those were quite a few - just see my blog or youtube channel for more details) the V911 was indeed the one I liked best

Right now I am about to try out the LiShi6030, and one thing I noticed already is that this birds wants SPACE ... even though it is only the size of an mCPX ...

It's hard to recommend something without more specific information; like past experience, what are your objectives (just goofing around, seriously want to learn to fly 3D, etc.), where do you want to fly (indoor, outdoors, outer space, etc.), what's your budget, what is available in your area either locally or online and last but not least, your age. For example, the V911 is a nice, durable, easy to fly heli. But, it won't teach you very much. That might be just fine, depending on your age and objectives. It's not a "one size fits all" hobby.

Fine mico helis/quads etc.V911 easy heli to fly. Quad MQX/ Ladybird V1 tops in their class. MSR/ 9958 nice flyers/ More advanced MSR-X/ Walkrea Super F/P FBL. C/P MSR-X V2/ Walkrea Mini c/p/ Genius V2/ Nano CP-X/ Larger V912 F/P
Bigger c/p Master c/p
Honorable mention V929/ V949/ L B V2 Solo pro 260A/ Solo-pro 270A. HusbanX-4/ Syma X-1.
Want something more exotic Hoten-X/ RC Logger Eye one. Point is there are so many different types of machines and find most fly well. We all have our favorites and biasis. I have Walkrea/ Blade/ T9X/ Solo-Pro J4/J6 pro/ WL toys/ Align and you know what all have issues. Some more than others but every one is flying. I sold off years of plank stuff and bought what I like now and thats Heli/quads. The BEST is ?? What ever one I am flying at that time.
For surport and availability of parts Blade in king. I like Walkrea also but some parts are pain to get. WL toys are reliable and cheap.

I had V911 for 9 months and with exception of replacing main motor with 9958 motor (due to gear mesh not very good), nothing broke, not a blade, link, flybar, skid, electronics, not even tail fin came off. Still had original box plus some extra parts, batteries, etc. (just in case parts), gave it away for Christmas. Son still has a 9958 that flies pretty good too, but V911s did fly a little bit nicer out of the box. 9958s broke blade balls and pins fairly easily.

Personally favorite now is Blade nano cpx. It has had more issues (different class than V911), but based on a lot of the recent reviews and issues on 100 class helis, I think the nano cpx is one of the better ones. Tempted to try Walkera super cp, V922, or Skyartec wasp 100 nano, but maybe putting money into 2nd nano cpx is better idea.

Thanks guys for your help what is the difference by putting the 9958 motor in the v911
