As far as I know, the warranty applies to transmitters only and nothing else. The warranty period is 12 months and Walkera will honor it. However, you may have to pay for return shipping to China. If something does happen to your transmitter, it is best to contact the vendor first.

Actually I think Tom was referring to a old JOKE we had going around about the Walkera warranty cards..

I thought DK said he had to do it and was not having any problems with the v100d03 grips on his genius. I flew it for three packs. It is raining so tough to really comment. I turned on the 3 axis, didnt rally like it too much. Lots of back and to the right drift! I see what Jason and everyone is talking about. I will have to reread what everyone is doing about this.
I put it back into 3 axis, and it appears as stable as mcpx! I am running bone stock settings on the TX, but have my rx ail and elev at maybe 3:30. I think I will put this thing on hold until I can take her outside. I also have to order those damn blade grips.....if anyone else besides Hellraiser thinks there is reason to believe they will not work please let me know! I respect Hellraisers opinion highly, but would like to hear from someone who maybe has tried or at least test fit them. Thanks guys,
I did not say they will not work I said they are not the same grips - but its possible they may work - the sooner you get your present grips replaced the better its pretty iffy gluing head parts that are traveling at such speed and under such stress.

They are not the same grips. They are just compatible. I had to replace the feathering shaft on the sample heli and the V100 shaft was perfect. That means the rotor head and grips are the correct width to use on this heli. I have not tried changing the grips yet so cannot verify whether there is a phasing issue or not by using them. I 'm kind of waiting for some MH upgrade stuff which I am sure is coming soon.

My next "mod" will be to stiffen up the rotor head to eliminate the see-saw rocking with the blade grips. This should provide a more crisp cyclic response.

I thought so as well, but the warranty is real and has been exercised successfully.

That is just a joke as Walkera offers no warranty for us in the USA.

There is absolutely no warranty on anything else other than the transmitter.

It may be worthwhile to find it whether you can deal with Walkera directly if a problem arise with the transmitter.

I was joking - it would cost more to send most things back to walkera that it does to fix them.

Doesn't mater to me as I have never had a warranty claim against Walkera.. just HH stuff. If a Walkera product doesn't work right I just buy another one, and repeat as needed till I get a good one...... It's the Walkera way.... Back in the old days you got what you paid for as it was half the price of other stuff you came out ahead most of the time... True some don't seem to understand this..

I'm really afraid to mess something up to the point the heli won't fly well for me.

I'll have to take it slow, I guess.

The Devo 7 is difficult to figure out and navigate through but my
Menu Navigation video I just made should make it easy for people now.
With the step by step video all you will need to do is play the video and
follow me with your Devo 7. This should make it quick and easy for everybody.
As soon as I finish with all the settings to post I'll start on the setup videos
which will have to be done in many parts.
I will cover how to copy a model into another slot also.
I will get all this done as fast as I can as I know people need help with this.

I didn't know the LiPo question included frame modification. I've removed the battery cages on 95% of my micro helis so I can use different sized batteries easily.
