Terence at Chinese Jade or Miracle mart are good vendors.
Terence often throws in extra spares or Chinese Jade too.

Good deal! That's a big step and harder than it sounds for sure. I'm trying to learn tail in inverted hover now and it reminds me a little too much of when I was trying to learn nose in hover...

Keep it up! And try not to crash

V400D02 owners may want to look at the new Master CP as well.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1664447

I have just flown and it was fine. I was confident to do inverted circuits on the maiden flight and also did many flips. Obviously, it was not to the same power level as a Trex 250. It appears to use same motor as the V400 which is obviously of some concern. The V400D02 never sold well in China but the Master CP seems to be doing very well in China at the moment. So there is much more confidence in this model, perhaps because Walkera has not released a bad model since the Genius CP.

In fact, third party manufacturers got round to making batteries for it even before Walkera could get in full production. Another potential problem are the 7-6-6 servos that are used in other 200 sized Walkeras. They tend to strip easily and have suffered occasional burnouts. We will have to wait to see what the long term durability is like.

Yep, option A, treat it like the main motor. It should spin counter clock wise, with the tail blades spining up into the main blade down wash. If its going the wrong way swap any two wires.

If you must buy a clone, you should probably consider a Tarot, EXI, or CopterX.
I don't buy clones but have been told my many club members that these are about the best.
Even better, just get yourself a Middle of the road Align Trex as you'll probably end up using Align parts anyway.
If your budget allows, get yourself a Gaui or Mikado and a decent sim as they are leaps and bounds ahead of anything by Align.
I have a Gaui x5, am a beginner, and have only crashed once out of around 90 flights, so it's entirely possible to start with a bigger (more stable) and more expensive ship without killing it on your first flight.
If the bird falls out of the sky, at least you can blame it on "dumb thumbs" and not call yourself a fool for buying garbage electronics.
I use the V400 as a basher and for honing my skills, then transfer my skills onto the larger and much more stable and reliable Gaui to refine them.
