Is the V915 compatible with V911, V912, V913 ?

Yes all remotes work and fly each other I believe the V915 board is nothing more than a reprogrammed V912 board, servos work in opposite directions from each other.

Seems like this heli does not have a fast forward flight like the V912. Question regarding the servos, if you reverse the polarity by inserting the servo plug the opposite way, will the servo move in opposite direction?

forward flight

it has enough and if want to mod it like everyone has had to do with the V912 to make it really good, then it has all the major parts of a V912, someone already adding the white servo arms from a V912 servo, cutting out the battery tray to get a 1500mah 30-35C battery in there so sure you can make just as good flying or close to it as a V912 and it sure will look alot better flying with the scale body, but I got my FX071 today and it will spank any I mean any 14-20in 4 channel helo even any modded V912, DH9116, F46, I am working on unbox and flight videos, I have never seen a 4 channel this size bank this tight of turns. it pitches the tail up when flying forward 75-80%, thank god its flybarless and 6 axis. this in 15-20 mph winds also, monsoon weather here.

This is great news! Can you answer my question regarding reversing the polarity on the servos? Please let us know when you have the review on the FX071 with a link.

well sorry but I tried myself reversing a servo wiring and just ended up frying the servo, but just to give you a small peak here are some pics of the FX071

thxkid, I need to ask you a question, I think it was you who did a review on the MJX F49...? It comes with a 390 motor and I believe you stated it is not compatible with the F45. Is it because the motor won't fit or has to do with the electronic? I want to know if I can use the 390 motor on my v912 & 913.

390 - F49 brushed motor

well here is why, and I tried to use it on the V913 and FX052, its not gonna work

the 390 is bigger around and taller, it uses a brushed ESC, 15 tooth large pinon, it generates alot of heat also, so could burn out the RX board, this 390 motor is the type they use in RC boats, Cars and trucks.
I highly recommend the brushless motor for the V913 it is so much better after installing it, does require a little soldiering though, plus the new brushless motor mounts on top of the V913 not inside which is a bad design IMO.

I agree, I have a bl motor on my v912 and it's powerful! Do you think the v915 has room for an ESC to do a brushless conversion?

Brushless conversion V915

depends what they offer it will require alot of carving away plastic to even fit the ESC, I have put a Esky Black Super motor in the V915 and its better, I have left the V915 alone abit as I just got the FX071 Flybarless 6 axis 4 channel helo 16in, blows the V912 and any other 16in helo away, started modding that one also.

It seems like there is a lot of room underneath the skids for an ESC. That's probably where I would install it. When you install the tail motor heatsink, what do you use to make it stick to the motor?

Heat sink tail motor

CPU grease or you can use the Chip set grease for video cards that drys hard, its a 2 tube part mix I get bought at amazon, $6. I heat sink ALL my brushed motors, if there is room, even my V262 quads.

Thanks for the reply, CPU grease will actually make it stick and not fall off?
