Photo of the batteries that arrived:

The listing had batteries marked like:

Okay.. the Vendor replied (tonight of all nights)... and provided a picture of what the original 120mah battery looks like compared to what they are now shipping with their products. The image shows the same part number as my battery.

Comparing that, and the image posted earlier by LarryCnAZ it is clear that both the batteries that came with my V911 and the 5pk are in fact upgraded batteries and are 200mah batteries.

I measured my batteries and they are in fact just over 2" in length.

Having never seen these types of batteries before and there not being any clear description in the V911 product that I purchased as to what it included, it was easy to assume that the batteries were 120mah as most V911 apparently come with.

The vendor Halley R Us provided the image below (I added the text)



I will be adding that part number to the various wiki's and will be updating my recent reviews to clarify now that I know.

Couldn't resist.
We should rename this thread to "Diablos v911 thread"
Sorry, you criticized this thread to be too big, but you are always posting huge posts in serial.
Hard to read "quick".
I personally like short comments getting to the point.

Just like to apologize to the community if my posts contain too much structured information.

I can try to summarize things into point form but alas, its will lose its DIABLOS signature.

Happy flying guys

Diablos , ive read your thread , and your other thread and your other thread , now be realistic.

This a forum for ALL
We ALL have different ideas and ways of doing things at times.
We ALL know when its gets to the point when we need to step away from the keyboard.
We ALL know when its time to take one of those pills and chill out.

THIS is a HOBBY , at times we disagree and at times we huddle together and work issues out because when all is said and done WE are a COMMUNITY , a million different minds trying to work together, there are going to be issues because we are ALL free thinkers and we ALL want to help or need help.

Its obvious from your posts that your not happy and its obvious that you think some things need change, specifically to how you think they should be run ,well theyre not , because this forum is made for us ALL not just one.

If you can do better then feel free to try no one is stopping you but i guarantee you will be back if nothing more than for the community.

Try a search on this thread with keywords : 9x setup
I think you will find some stuff

I've read the f45 rx board says wltoys on in so the Tx will bind. I bought 9116 Tx on hobbypartz for 7 plus 5 shipping worth every penny for sure. You can set dual rates on every channel in two positions of the D/R switch. Just no charge jack but I'll bet some one has a mod for that too.

What skids do you have on there? Haven't seen v911 skids yet with the bit at the rear holding the battery but I'd sure be interested, especially if I was thinking about doing your battery upgrade. Have you tried any kind of measurement on the main and tail engine heat after flying one of those batteries?

Thanks for all the help guys. After key word searching crystal I think this is my problem. While my led does not go solid (flashes slowly) it seems to be the logical explanation. I have the latest version and the crystal is flat, square and very small. While it has been crashed I have broken nothing so this is very disappointing and I'm not in a position to fix it. Maybe a will get a bnf.

My only mod works well to cool tail motor. I see less drift at 2/3 battery. You can anneal popcan aluminum with a lighter so it doesn't crack easily when bent " didn't think of it at the time just didn't bend so sharp after cracking several.. I tightly curved longer strip back bent to shape 5 min jb welded it then trimmed it.Also used from LHS Epic/Trinity oil on shafts.
