Try to hit it on one side with something (the other pin) that fits in the place of where the pin is and wiggle it while you try to push or pull it out, should work keep on trying.

HA... got it out, finally with brute force of a hammer and a hardened small screwdriver. Thanks for the reassuring words, I've got to go out for a test flight now. I am going to reinforce the loops with some UV-hardening liquid plastic ("Bondic" here in Germany) afterwards.

Bthirsk I got the programming card finally over here... could you kindly tell me what are the best settings for the turnigy esc for my F45. For now I put brake off. cut off type on soft cut. cut off voltage on high. start mode very soft, timing mode on high and governor mode off. tell me if I need to change anything please. Thanks mate so maybe I start flying this guy again

OK with the above settings heli wouldn t lift from the floor with 90% throttle so I re attached programming card to ESC and set it to default settings. Rebinded heli to tx and worked like a charm it even remembered the new throttle range settings and started spinning at 8-9% Throttle the main BLmotor . Now I am still waiting for a nice video clip from someone who recently made the BL conversion on the tail motor and had success with it so far!! If I remember correctly there were 2 new members who were in the process of doing this conversion Hinnerk and maybe Rexless??

I would set the:
Cut off voltage: Low High often confuses 2s batteries and it goes into soft cutoff
Start mode: soft On a bigger heli, Very soft but this one does not need it.
Timing: low High is only used for very high end motors which we don't have

I broke mine several times and the symptoms where the same, heli difficult to control in one or two directions.

Nop... everything seems fine... i think it's pilot error... i'm going to give it a little more mechanical trim to the right and reverse... maybe it will help.

Sure would be nice to fly one of these! I ordered one almost three weeks ago from Firecabbage on AliEpress and the tracking number still shows no activity at all. The seller seems to ignore all of my messages and e-mails and has provided zero communication. Anybody have a more direct method of contacting them besides the AliExpress route?

China recently had a week long holiday, and this would have caused a complete stop to any work being done. EG Shipping etc. It is possible they posted your parcel just before the holiday, and it then sat at China post office during the holiday.

The holiday is now over so you should either hear something from Firecabbage soon, or your parcel should be on its way.

Just curious, what postage option did you choose? EMS? China Post?

I know about the holiday (I order a lot of watch parts from China) and it was shipped regular China Post Airmail. I can understand the shipping time to be greater than EMS but the tracking number basically looking like it is invalid and no response from seller makes me wonder. They updated the order saying it had shipped on 9/27 and provided a tracking number. I'd never ordered anything from AliExpress before...

I guess I'll have to put this DH9116 back together and crash it some more!

The tracking number for China Post usually is only valid until it leaves China. In other words its only a local tracking number. Once it's on the Plane the tracking wont tell you any more.

If it says it's been received by the post office, then it is on its way.

The tracking number doesn't even indicate it has been received for shipping, it's like the number is invalid.

Hi all.

I've a strange sensation...

weeks ago, I gave my helicopter to my nephew and yesterday I've bought another F45 for me but during the first flight I had a different feeling. The new bird takes off with about half throttle and i guess to remember that my old one took off, with much less throttle.

Can be possible? my memory is wrong?

Thank in advance

Just as a heads up, with this heli being as good as it is, chances of someone selling it are fairly slim

Even someone moving onto bigger and better things will probably keep it as a fun flyer

Half throttle sounds about right... Do your flight times feel any shorter/longer?

If they are considerably shorter, there is a chance the battery is damaged.

Interesting point raised by Serpicus.
The last (of four, one alas RIP now) F45 was definitely not performing as well as the first 3. Maybe something has been changed to make it easier for those stepping up from Coax? - but it's not a battery thing, or anything immediately obvious. I'll try to check into the difference as soon as I catch up on work..
