Outdated before delivery so angry with myself for not noticing this. I chose wow because i thought that they would alwas have the latest model, but now it seems i have to revice my chosen vendors.

to make the the V1 into a V2.0 verson what do i need to change. rx, motor and maingear. already ordered the slipper cluch so i will keep onto that.

You just need the new receiver. The rest of the heli appears to be the same except the canopy. However, I would hang on the old receiver as many experienced fliers do not like the new receiver with 6 axis gyro.

Mmm, but on the other hand it seems the new gyro compensates windy conditions better. Friend of mine did mild 3D in bft 3-4.

Another question. My tracking info says I can expect my V120 any moment now. What I already did is copying my Genius model to model 2 on my Devo 7. I guess that will do? (I will check swashplate movement).

I would go to the Walkera site and download the basic setup for the devo7 there.
I started with that and adjusted to make it more flyable.

This only happens after many flights with old motors and batteries. If you get to this stage, it is best to replace them.

Agree .i ve tried 2 new batteries with the 8 months old motor , things were better but not huge difference.You need to replace the motor with a new one you can find it for only 21$ http://www.ac-rc.com/product_info.ph...284ksjrkhbtab5, or you can uograde with a turbo ace 215 or the xrteme spin which doubles the cost but doubles the fun also.

Thanks a lot for this small but brilliant invention Bob. Kudos to you!

Regards, Notker
Thank you,, it was a sort of cheap and easy way to get the job done. Till something better came along.. I have never had any problems with mine so no need to get the BenMlee one in my case...

In my opinion your simple but reliable construction is really ingenious. I doubt that other more complex constructions are as reliable as your design. Well, time will tell. Until now I've never had any problems too and I'm still using the first fuel hose piece. The only thing I'm worrying about is losing that small headless screw.

Btw. I always thought that every screw on my V120D02S has metrical thread whereas your small replacement screw seems to have an inch thread. But no matter, main thing it works

Yes it does, specially hovering this 6axis gyro.

Flew mine all morning yesterday. Brought several lipos & a charger. Was calm early morning, then got a bit windy later.
My observation:
- Right roll is not impressive, drifts to the left a lot after the roll, then noses up. Needs some good collective management.
- Left rolls is very nice and clean (pretty axial).
- Love the forward flips, nice and clean.
- Back flips is nice
- Inverted is very stable.

SUMMARY:
- OVER ALL, I LOVE THE HELI
- Difficult to keep SMOOTH fast forward flights. Flying fast forwards, don't let the right stick sit in the middle too long (like over a second) or this thing would "want to level" back (loosing my angle of attack) like my thumb is shaking.
- (Occasionally), Flying back and forth, climb up, then turn 180deg, to come back around is a bit ugly. The heli "seemed" to hit an "invisible wall", then, noses up, but again, it's probably caused by the right stick, stayed at the center, unknowingly.
- Be prepared as it could mess up your planned maneuver coming from fast forward.
- I wish I could turn OFF the 6 axis if I prefer to. As someone and
Ali had mentioned, the 6axis is always ON with this heli.
- It seemed to me that when the sticks are constantly moving, the heli stays on 3 axis, so no effect with the flying, or it (6 axis) doesn't messes up with the flying, maybe (?). If the sticks hit & stayed at the center for a second or 2, the 6 axis kicks in (?).

*All these comments based on stock set-up, and settings. I may play around with the gains next time.

Just my 2 cents,
-Spyro
