New pics are up on banggoods page and reveal some good info

cpu has KN on it so has been programmed by the same company that did the wltoys v970/v930 etc and likewise radio looks to be a beko i.e. nrf24l01
also a spare 3 pin socket so maybe brushless compatible













Tx is mode switchable like the v912 tx. Switch is on the back of the tx.

I have one on order and want to get a spare lipo for it. Do you think this one will work? Of course I need to change out the connector.

I'd say that will be way too thick to fit without modifying the battery holder, even then they may be to heavy

A friend of mine, who travels to China once a year, bought me two helicopters made by the same factory: Fei lun: The FX056 and the FX076.
Both of the helicopters came cracked, as my friend squeezed them really tight in between his luggage, but I managed to fix them until I order some parts (hope Banggood spare them soon).

The good thing is that one of the 2 helicopters is FBL. I got to say it’s awesome, a world of difference. The FX076 FBL made me feel that my V911 is a turtle!

One thing that made me mad, is that the two helicopters used different protocols, despite they are from the same company, I don’t know why most of the companies now follow the same policy of producing helicopters that are not compatible?

(P.S: Both of the transmitters are not FlySky compatible, as my V911 doesn’t bind to any of them).

The PCB of my FX076 is different from the one that is shown on Banggood. I don’t know for sure if mine is from the older or the newer patch, but it works fine.

The anti-rotation pin is very weak, but overall the heli is very tough. I crashed the hell out of it and it still flies very well.

The main motor is brushed, so it’s probably going to last for around 50 flights more or less, but that's not a problem for me. I like brushed motors
The tail motor is very powerful. It holds the tail tightly even in hard punch-outs.

Each servo has 5 wires, which I don’t like, as most of the after-market servos have only 3 wires, so you will never be able to use any servos but the stock ones (the same problem with my MJX F46).

Another thing that pi* *ed me off, that I have to adjust the Tx sutrims every time I start to fly. I leveled the swash-plate and adjusted the servo arms manually and it flew great. Very stable and very responsive, but once I turned the Tx off and then on again, I had to adjust the subtrims on the Tx !!!

The heli is not suitable for indoor flights (I am used to fly my V911 which is slow in comparison to the FX076). I am flying my FX076 on the beginner mode on the Tx, and with the servo buckles connected to the inner holes of servo arms. Yet the speed and cycling are not controllable in a tight area. Imagine it now flying on the expert mode with the servo buckles connected the outer holes. It will be a blast.

I captured a short video for it flying in my small room, but I am going to try it outdoor soon and post my experience here.

FX076 4CH FBL helicopter - Indoor Hovering! (3 min 27 sec)


Overall, the heli is very good for the price, very responsive, very fast and crash resistant.

I hope you enjoyed my mini-review.

This Force Power 600mAh battery is for the 120SR which is a little bigger heli, so it will not fit the FX076.

Force Power 600 mAh:
Size : 58 x 19 x 7mm
FX076 stock 350mAh:
Size: 58 x 13 x 6

You will need to modify the skids or change it totally to install that 120SR battery.

Another thing, the 600mAh battery weighs 20 grams and the stock FX076 battery weighs 11 grams. So even if you managed to install the bigger battery to your FX076, it will make the heli very heavy as it has a smaller motor in comparison to the 120SR motor. I recommend to use this battery (of course after modifying the skids):
http://www.banggood.com/5-X-V966-V98...-p-924648.html

It has the same plug, and higher capacity (380mAh), yet lighter than the stock FX076 battery (10.2 gm)

I searched the net, but I didn't have any luck finding a battery that fits the FX076 without modifying the skids, so I may change the skids entirely, if Banggood didn't stock the FX076 parts and batteries soon.

Thanks for the tip, how about these lipo that goes to the V930? They look like they are more narrow then the one you post.

Nice find Vincent. These batteries are going to fit perfectly, and the weight is only 2 gm heavier. This is the battery to go with.

I am going to place an order.

Thanks man

Edit: I looked again at the photos of this battery, and I think the dimensions written on banggood aren't correct. The battery hight looks bigger than the stock FX076 battery. I hope I am wrong.

I hate that Banggood doesn't provide accurate data on the products they sell.

In the photo below you will notice that the V930/V977 520mAh battery is almost the same size as the Nano-tech 600mAh battery:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...QX_120SR_.html

And according to Hobby-King, the size is totally different:
Dimensions: 79x7x19mm

I think, the only solution is to change the skids and use the 380mAh battery (post #8).

I'm probably just going to go with the battery I post and do the skid mod, it has good specs and BG has a lot of it.

The FX076 was very heavy and very slow with that battery.

Put in mind that this battery weighs 16 gm (5 gm heavier than the stock FX076 battery), and the FX076 motor is not that powerful (it's N30 motor). May be if you convert the FX076 to brushless, you can use a heavy battery like that one.

For me, I ordered the V988 380mAh battery as it's lighter, yet has a higher capacity and higher C rate. I also ordered the V988 skids. I am now waiting for the slow boat.

Hope that helps.

Happy flying
