Hey while I'm here, what battery and charger should I get for this heli?
I know I've seen it in the thread, but I can't recall where I found it. Thanks.
For the charger a Turnigy Accucell 6 (you'll need a banana plug to red jst adapter cable and a 15vdc 2.0amp power supply with the appropriate pin plug or get the charger and power pack deal) or Imax 6.

And the upgrade battery for the DH9116 is the Akku 7.4vdc 900mAh 20c 2s LiPo.

Both can be obtained via ebay or online hobby shops, including hobbyking.

Well no luck with banana hobby have not got a phone call or email back from them, the kids heli is nice and he is getting good at flying it, and mine looks pretty on the book shelf, I almost want to pack them up and ship them back and dispute the charges, but that would probably cost the same as buying a new tx. So guess I'm just screwed I will give my full opnion and his store on reseller rating hopefully warn others.. wish I woulda looked him up before I bought from him...

Hey guys, anyone who loves their 9116 and wants to upgrade please stay away from the 9117. It's a piece of . Third flight it smoked the pcb went full throttle into a tree, plus it's flying capabilities were comparable to a brick. The 9116 is better by a mile in every aspect!!!!

Amen on the 9116 with a few mods still one fine bird in my book, Took my Heli-Max out and blade grip holder bolt sheared at about 3 feet off the ground . Darn near cleaned my clock, got to get metal upgrade (or park it) Something about flying wooden blades coming at ya took out all the fun out of it. Some of the Videos of things that go afoul would be priceless (or embarrassing)

I bought the 9116 a few months ago as a step up from a co axle machine,after some frustration with the factory set up,this baby is the bee`s knees.
One question though,has anyone bought a upgrade battery that dosen`t start to die after 8 flights?
RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE.

50 or so flights on my 900mAh LiPo upgrade battery and still going strong...

Are you using a programmable charger or the oem charger, as they will kill a cell quick as.

I have seen a few stock chargers melt down...and I hate how long they take to charge, when they work, they work. At home though, I use a6/ac, fast charge thenwhen done another 15 minutes on regulator charge gives 7 minutes instead of 5 minutes the fast charge.
At the store, been using two stock chargers for four different Helis the last 2 years...just sayin...
The reason I use them at the store is that's what comes with the box...I do tell people about better chargers, what to watch for...I have been seeing that the charge that blinks while charging does some times not balance charge as well as the older ones that did red led lit green led off until charged. I do use a battery checker to check the 2s batts at store,

Cheers for the reply and info. My batterie`s are lasting about 5 min with light flying/hovering,there`s somethings wrong as the batteries are a week old.
New quality charger on the way.
