yeah pretty much from the start, but a bit of rudder trim and its fine.

could allways pop another tail motor on. only notice it when hovering its very slight

My y911's are very sensitive to extra weight and so my two 150 mah cells, which weigh 1 gram more than the stock 120 mah cells, don't get any more flight time/quality than my five 145 mah cells, which weigh 1/2 gram more than the stock 120 mah cells.

any suggestions??

9116 tx

I'm looking at buying a 9116 TX.. Are double horse heli's any good? I was thinking about just buying a heli package which includes the 9116 TX but wasn't sure if double horse heli's are worth a damn..

Are any heli's packaged and sold with the 9X?

If battery is good and antenna is intact, then nonbinding issues often times point to the crystal. Lots of posts on this thread about that, search a bit you will find them.

Looks like i have a slightly dodgy lipo, the tail drifts left on one lipo, the other lipo it holds really solid.

Least its not the heli, Does it mean one of the lipos are underpowered i geuss ?

Weather still hasn't changed. Wife and kids are out, though. My V911's are flying all over the house.

Are you trying this (re)binding procedure?:

Plug the battery in on your v911 and then set it down and really, really quickly turn on the tx. Wait a few seconds until it binds.

Also verify your battery conn's from the skid to the board.

The symptoms sound consistent with a failed crystal on your Rx board, although this crystal is usually damaged in crashes. I've never seen it gone bad in mid flight. This thread is long, I know. But you should search back for keyword Crystal. I think you would find that consistent with the problems you're having.

There is no model memory so switching would be a pain. Doublehorse is a durable easy to fly heli. Hobbypartz is only 7 & 5 shipping

Maybe it will get better after a few charges.You can check the voltage and amps with a meter.

Too much wifey cuteness in my house for a v911. Living on the edge of the Rocky Mountains gets you roller coaster weather. This week is lookig like this:

Christmas week was 20'C colder and yes we had a 'White Christmas'. Average is halfway in between and usually too windy to fly outside. I'm ready to test my TX mods at the church hall.

just put two packs through it again, both drifted a bit, two click on rudder trim and it was perfect, then after that it needed no clicks on trim lol i have no idea, only thing is the tx resets rudder trim on start up.

maybe im to used to my hk450 TT heh. still fly great for the price

The 9116 I had moved like a bus.Great FFF speed,but poor handling.What I hated was changing the tail motor out every 10 flights.WL toy has a helicopter in the same class, I believe the TX is compatible with a V911,not 100 % sure though.
I use the 9116tx with my Wl toys helicopters and quads, and I am very happy with it.

Banggood is rocking! I ordered a y911 (as a spare) on the 24th.. It is here in my house now! 5 days from ship to delivery. They shipped on the day I ordered. I have a ton of parts I ordered on the 25th, so I expect them wed. All I really noticed different was a sturdier skid, although I didn't take too close of a look. The swash looks the same from a casual glance.
