Red wine is actually VERY healthy to drink daily. As long as you don't over do it. Oz. for fl. Oz. It's got one of the highest antioxidant properties out of most beverages. Drink up, i won't stop you No go and try and convince the old lady of what i just told you

Geeze, just logged back on lol My ex wife will no doubt hate the fact that I'm drinking something healthy (in moderation obviously!) haha As for the other women in my life, none of them, for as lovely as they are, are important enough to have an opinion on what I do mate haha

Where did you get the main blade holders for the v120d02s or did you make them yourself? I have some extreme one that holds the blades on top of each other instead of side to side like yours. On my 450 I use the tarot main blade holder that holds them side to side.

Yes, the 130x KDBB tail blades are very close to the same size as the D02S tail blades. They are a little shorter and narrower. The stock D02S blade shown is actually slightly ground down on the tip from use. So it's a little more rounded and shorter than when new.



BAD NEWS! The 130x tail blades do not fit properly without modification. The blade root is too fat. The inside half of the blade grip will buckle to accept it on the plastic v120d02S grips but they absolutely will not fit the D05's CNC tail grips. Not a big deal because i was looking for wider tail blades anyway for the D05. So you can force fit them on the D02S but the result is a boomerang shaped tail rotor:




I am going to try and fly it tomorrow like this. I assume the tail will drift or act funny. Not sure. I'm not sure the best way to go about grinding it to size and keeping symmetry either. So if anyone has any ideas on best practices with doing so, please speak up.



Otherwise, they look great and the length is not an issue with the tail rotor except in a crash maybe. They shouldn't hit in flight. They end up being the same length as the 140mm CF blades are. I flew with those for a while with no problems with the tail rotor. The trailing edge of the 130X KDBB blade has a little extra length on the root side of the blade as well. Not sure if it matters. Over all the length of the blades is equal to the 140mm blades but they are just as narrow as the stock blades. This is exactly what i was looking for and i have great hopes they will fly well tomorrow. Did i mention they look great?

Yesterday I had the first real flight with my v2 outside in wind. No symptoms of hitting a wall or self-leveling but I only did some FFF. I love it. I went for it with my broken rotor anti-rotation guide and it did't fret at all but I didn't push it very hard too. I was afraid of popping the link off and hitting something.

Now I need to stop chickening out and do at least a flip, I can't do inverted hovering for more than a few seconds yet and I don't own a simulator. I think I need to take the plunge and buy one cause I'm progressing very slowly and with winter almost here I won't be able to go outside whenever I have time.

Phoenix or RealFlight or Clearview or which one? From what I've read most people go for Phoenix.

Phoenix is better than RealFlight if you're into heli.

Check eBay if looking for used ones...

And this is how doctors end up extracting micro heli parts from places they don't belong.

Those are microheli blade holders for the trex 250. I think i got mine at wowhobbies. But they should be available elsewhere too. They don't grip the tail boom on the D02, but i kind of just lay it over the horizontal fin. Stupid Walkera putting their rudder control on TOP. It's in the way. So the foam fork kind of rest over top of it. The extreme ones might grab the boom from the side instead of the top? Not sure. I just happened to buy these because they fit my 4f200 also.


I seriously can't keep up with this thread! LOL.

Nope it all comes on a roll. This was just a quick result from google:





@amartolos - I don't think i would consider the Nano CPX as a replacement for the v120. More like a toy to use when you can't fly the v120 outside. The guys flying in that video you posted were very experienced. Don't forget you'll need to upgrade to BL motors or replace the motors every 50 or so flights. Plus the tail motor will hold MUCH worse than the d02s in reverse flight. So it would be cool for in the house without worry of breaking it or damaging your house. But for a replacement of the D02S look at the 130X. It looks like it's going to smack the v120 down. I need to fly one of these things. I wish some of you guys lived closer

I use Phoenix. It has all of the Align and Blade helicopters for you to pick from. It has a nice online mode to fly with friends online. Plus the new 3D mode is pretty cool with the ability to fly from in the cockpit of your heli and fly though 3d landscapes. This might get more development later, but it's a nice little add on feature of Phoenix that i don't think the other sims are doing yet. Phoenix 4 is constantly being updated and adding new aircraft models too.

Wait, are you talking about getting drunk and experimental, then putting Walkera back where it came from? Because even though they are a POS, i'm pretty sure that would hurt!

Clearview is ok to learn you to hover lets say the first 1-2 months.I ve started my practise with clearview bcs with phoenix i couldnt hold the heli steady during hovering over 1-2seconds .When i ve mastered hovering at all directions i moved to phoenix which i am using almost every day the last 10 months.

I'll get a sim to begin 3d training, which I suck badly at. Except some flips I can't do much, so the sim practice will help be get better over winter. It's a win-win, I get to fly and get better at it.

As you seems to be located in europe, where did you get them from? I just find them on US sites that do not do overseas shipping.
