Your BNF can now become one of your fleet and hopefully you'll always have one in the air.

Your V911 can load web pages? Mine doesn't have that feature....

I'm assuming that your interference is happening after you turn the V911 off for it to be taking 1/2 hour to load?? That would indicate you have a serious problem with your network.

Network issues can be caused by a lot of things including not having your access point properly setup so that it is in a clear channel range from other access points.

Lots of things like:
o How far away is your access point
o What are other access points nearby using for their channels.
o How old is the Access point (older ones may need firmware updates to get better firmware). This stuff changes more often than some think.
o Possible issues with your computer's wifi settings
etc...

I have my access points staggered so that they are on different channels. The closest neighbors are using channels to not interfere (worked with one of them who didn't know how to do that once). All of my indoor flying is in a location between my Access points and my most commonly used notebook without any issues. If there was a problem, I would get a lot of complaints as there are a number of other household members which use Wifi for phones, tablets and notebooks at the same time. Even the TV area has some Wifi connected appliances which would be very obvious if there was interference (PS3, Wii, several Raspberry Pi's, all using WiFi for access).

There are forums for dealing with network issues better suited to this type of stuff. If your V911 is interfering with it's communication you most likely have other problems as well.

There is a free tool you can download and run on a notebook that has WiFi access to see what is going on around your network. http://www.metageek.net/support/downloads/ It will show other access points, their signal strength and what channels they are using. It might even make suggestions on what changes you need to make for the AP you are connected to.

My Lightning Bird came with one bad battery. I posted it in my Amazon review and Wow! Two hours after mentioning my bad battery in my review they sent me an email apologizing and offering to send me 2 new batteries. I didn't even have to contact them directly. Halley R Us is awesome! The Lightning Bird is so much fun to fly I can't wait to get the new batteries.

I will try that too.

Thanks

I think one of my batteries may be bad, flight time is bad and it seems to disconnect randomly requiring me to wiggle the battery and rebind my TX.

Does the Lightning Bird come with a detailed diagram showing all the parts labeled? If not, does anyone have a link to such a thing?

Yeah it would not charge at all or power the heli.

Does any one know of a charging harness I can use to charge multiple "new style" batteries with my programmable lipo charger?

I second this, I have a Thunder AC6 that I would much prefer using for these.

I believe the new style batter is using the same plug as NANO CPX, so you can use a 6S or 3S harness with any parellel charger. BUT PLEASE MAKE SURE THE +/- side are correct because they may be reversed...
