Jim, you are correct. But which mode you like is a personal choice. I used to feel that low rate is safer. But I feel the opposite now. Not because that I'm a better pilot, but I feel that the low rate dump down the responses. In tight quarters, when you need to bail out the most, the responses is not available with low rate. So, IMHO, even for beginners, you should use the high rate, and as you said, tough it out. Learn to make small movements in general and not to over correct something. But go 100% when you need to bail! Then quickly go back to smaller stick moments. This is the skill required to fly FBL and CP helicopters - something that I'm learning. You might as well start early.

Hi guys, got one of theese birds for xmass, unfortunately, mine came with a faulty Rx (the crystal is bad I think) as it won't bind, just goes to red after 2 seconds..
The good thing is I got a full refund and they don't even want it back! So I've go a free v911!
So,, I'm now ordering a new rx. Mine is a rev 5, but the one on ebay (I'm in the u.k), is a rev 4.. so I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to tell me if I will experience any problems going with the rev 4 board?
And also, does anyone know the difference between the two?

Sorry for the newbie questions, I've been reading this thread on and off for a few months now and have came accross the rx questions above, but I was hopeing not to have to read through the 1000+ pages again!

Thanks peops..

(P.s I've also already got a few upgrade parts including the bravo sx motor and solo pro 270 swash, but the swash looks diffrent to the v911 one, have I made a mistake with that? Also is the bravo sx tail motor a good upgrade too? As I had a modified solo pro 2 before this (until it flew away! Arrgghh) with bravo sx main and tail motors which made sooo much difference..)

But thanks again..

James.

Any wire that isn't shielded. You want it to be around 30mm long.

My V911's antenna appears to be somewhere between 25mm and 30mm long (hard to measure because it's bent and glued in place).

With the exception of rev 6, the particular sample of which I got had a servo hesitation, all older rev's are good from my experience.

For your information, many sellers use a reference photo for their auctions, so you may end up with a different revision than what is shown.

Hero H911

Got mine from xheli. The H911 seems to have a wl toys rev 7 board, and everything appears interchangable between wl toys versions (based on my best recollection, since I don't have a wl toys version on hand), and yellow and white clones as well. I did noticed the servo throw of the H911 being wider than that of the y911. Here's a vid of the comparison.

H911 vs Y911 servo throw comparison (low and high rates) (0 min 42 sec)

Oh, and here's a vid of my first flights (w/o canopy for quietness). It's like learning to fly all over again.

Just got a turnigy 9x gifted to me by a coworker. I searched the post but can't find recommendations on how to configure it. Anyone have good ideas for settings? Or is it trial and error.

I've attached a picture and am wondering if the swashplate looks right. It isn't level. Any other ideas would also be appreciated. The servos are level in that picture.
I am having the same problems as you. I am working with Halley R us on a solution. I will post back once things are worked out.

I'm waiting on my 9x to arrive in the mail. From the research I've done it looks like the best way to go is load the 9x with er9x firmware, and then load the EEPE file on this page to fly the V911.

Makdaddy has some stock setting to play with until you go er.
