Any problems with the motors burning out faster, or more frequent with the higher 200mAh? Longer flight time is great, but I'm thinking the small motors may not like it.

Quite simply the V911 is the best flyer you can have and will on fly on fire even in close quarters.

It is highly customizable, worthy of a custom paint job and collecting EVERY COLOR for 20 bucks.

Like the other V911, I assume it will bind to a Turnigy 9x.

The yellow and white as somewhat questionable as they are NOT made by WL.

There is now an WL H911 Warbird Edition made with a military paint job purchased from Xheli and Nitroplane.

The battery connector M A Y be different.

I'm sure we all hope it BG picks it up so we won't have to pay S&H.
My H911 will be here soon! Just ordered it today... From what all I have read, I believe the battery connector is the same... I hope so. Can anyone confirm??

The battery connectors aren't really an issue because you can always just swap out the skids if you want to use your old or new batteries. The H911 does have the new style connector. The old batteries' connectors wrapped around the end of the battery, the new ones have a small white connector protruding from the end. It looks similar to the E-Flite battery connector but it is slightly larger.

Someone should be getting and posting their impressions of the latest H911 version on here soon. I'm waiting to see if there are any differences to the V3 V911 before I order one. ARGGHHH....................my wife is gonna kill me if I don't stop ordering these things, talk about being a heli addict, that would be me!

I bought a spare Motor set for my Lightning bird(should arrive tomorrow), because I was wondering the same thing. I will let you know how it goes.

Difference between 150mah and 200mah new style batteries.

You're limited to what the receiver on the heli is, in this case it has a FlySky compatible receiver. I'm not aware of other modules that are FlySky compatible but perhaps someone smarter than me will educate us.

I'd stay with the module that mystman linked to. My 9X has the FlySky module that uses the internal antenna, I ordered one of the modules as linked so I can remove my internal antenna, this will allow me to easily change and use other modules that have an antenna attached to the module.

Has anybody weighed these? I am guessing 25% longer is going to be about 25% heavier and so somewhere around 5.5 to 6 grams.

what about a module that links to nine eagles, helimax, walkera, I'm sure some hackers could link any thing

According to my letter scale, the 200mah are 6g ea. My V911 with a battery attached is 33g

I don't have any of the original batteries to compare to so I cant compare between the performance of the same V911 with smaller batteries though.

Is it safe to say that any v911 (or H911) can bind to any v911 transmitter. Assuming so, are there any BNF 911's other than the one found at bang good.com?
