I saw that too, guess I will wait and see how well my OEM parts last before I mess with things.

Thanks

Dog fighting with helicopters is helicopter cruelty! I've been trying to tell you!! It's good that you've learned your lesson. Best wishes in fixing it.

The tail motor holder may be glued on to the boom, but the motor itself should slide out, perhaps with some effort. If all else fails, buy a BNF for $20.

Sheesh, I don't even have my first heli (arrives tomorrow) and I ordered my second. This one from Banggood, the black/orange v911. $37.79 with 5% Facebook discount.

Did you get a BNF or RTF.... $38 sounds expensive for a BNF.

RTF - I was thinking of the BNF for parts then thought with the RTF I get a couple extra batteries I can use for longer flying plus the transmitter (just in case), not to mention a loaner if a friend stops by. Then there is the wife, daughters and son in law - hmmmm, may need more spare parts

First attempt

Wow, I may need some help trimming this thing. it seems to want to turn left and pitch left. Haven't been able to get it flying for more then a few seconds.

I have messed with trim settings and maxed them out back and forth to try and fix the issue but having a hard time settling the copter...

I too had a bit of trouble with this at first. Using the 9x transmitter helps a bit as its trims seem to trim further than the controller that came with the v911.

You also get sub trim's which can help get it rock solid.

Right off the bat, if you require so much trims to hover the bird, it is way off. Using large amount of trims to combat it now, just messes you up later.

I recommend that you center all trims on the control. Find the biggest open area you could find. Hand launch this thing (much easier to hover than to start from the ground) and follow the manual trimming procedures (search the thread if you don't know what I'm talking about). Eventually, you'll have this bird trimmed out perfectly. Reserve the trim buttons for future and minor adjustments. Otherwise, you're going to drive yourself nuts.

Yes, I have. The parts set I received were for the Solo Pro 260a and the rotor head is different. The shaft, collar and swash work OK. The swash I received is much better than both the original and the improved y911 fisheye swash.

After modding the rotor head and installing the rest I discovered what others also have found. The parts are heavy and my little bird would hardly lift off the floor.

solo pro aluminum kit

here is what I had to say about this kit, almost 9 months ago (which doesnt really matter too much, because most of the time if someone checks in my blog for something, they can find in my thread index if I wrote about it ... ok, I have been slacking quite a bit lately, but it is one of my new years resolutions to catch up with that ... ...)
Anyway, this is the first post and it actually goes from 68 to 73 ...

Here's my 2 cents, forget about swash and/or head upgrades, the best and only mod for the v911 is a msr paddled flybar. Keep the stock as back up in case you don't like it, or switch them according to your mood.

With the stock TX you have to rely on manual trimming of the servo links. I am wondering if these big batteries are causing odd flight behavior with the helicopter.
Two other possibilities could be flybar tightness, or link binding. With one of mine i had to sand the nubs a bit on the blades to keep the links freely moving.

Other than getting getting the tail motor out of the seat which I've already done, is the repair difficult? I assume I need to bring the new wires back to the board?

Either chop close to the motor and solder the wires, or feed back through tail(pain in the &$$),then sold them to the board.
