Yep, I tried it and a few others have as well. They are junk and do not work well at all. They're also heavy and really bog the heli down. I recommend spending the 8 bucks on stock parts.

I bought one when I had a v911. I ended up using the swash and pitched the rest.

I'd suggest staying stock as well. The Lightning Bird I just reviewed flies great and there are parts aplenty available through Helizone RC. That's simply too small a machine to "bling" with CNC. Just IMO.
