Yes, just looked it up. Good!
Amazon is taken seriously by businesses.
Still, haven't heard a thing from them though, not good customer service.

Did a search for other sites selling the H911 and they still list the larger battery size, which is likely incorrect, but I don't know since I didn't buy from them, so - buyer beware.

I agree with 2_Crash_Thumbs, the Y911 is a bit different then the true wl toys V911 when powering up.
The process above works on the Wl toys V911, but my Y911 clone I have to bind it each time. Battery first then power on the TX

Ordering my V911 this weekend from banggood...Any of you thread vets have a short simple list of all the mods that were discussed on here that you can list off hand...over 1000 pages is alot to look through to find all of them...Im aware of the motor and flybar paddle upgrades.. Im going to keep the stock flybar set up for less twitchy control....Wanting to replace the main shaft with something alittle lighter if possible..I recall reading about the Y911 version having a carbon main shaft but using the fisheye swash...any chance i can use just the shaft with the stock swash from the V911 version like im purchasing?..Anything on blade upgrades using the stock head?. Also the new 200mah batteries being offered for the new plug version like im ordering; are they overkill as far as runtime...i know the motors get hot pretty fast but would rather fly less time than 30 seconds to a minute more and really over heat the motors..Any thoughs on rather i should get the 200s or stick with the stock 120s?.What about the 150s?..Thanks for any and all help and opinions.

actually no need to rush and upgrade anything on stock v911. they fly great in stock parts if the pilot know how to control them. they can make bank turn very fast and recover beautifully.

imho .. just use the stock v911, get the feel of it, and if you are not satisfied, you can always upgrade later

I just ordered this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o01_s00_i00

It should be here by the 25th & I can't comment much on the battery, mine came with the 200mah & I've upgraded it to 240mah. My main motor doesn't really get hot but my tail motor is starting to go so I think you should order extra

banggood has the fisheye squash with carbon shaft in v911 parts. Just search my posts for the heat sink for tail motor out popcan metal I made tail motor stays real cool with it . For some reason banggood doesn't have the 150s with a 5fer deal in new plug i was hoping they would they just did it in 200s.

Well, if you can afford to be patient, I would recommend to get it from here:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Shaft_Set.html
ordering 3 will be technically equal to order super saver shipping from Amazon plus, if you use the SP260 head, you will also need SP260 blades, so IF you order THIS from either store, and you DONT already have a SP260 OR the spare SP260 blades, dont forget to put those on your list as well.

One thing about the 200mAh batteries vs. the 120mAh ones is that they are basically 50% heavier ... so the actual GAIN from using them is in fact smaller than you might think as the added weight counters part of the extra mAh ...

As far as I know they don't offer a screw package for the v911. You'll have to source from a donor v911 or another heli. Don't lose the flybar screw, I haven't seen that one anywhere.

I was actually hoping to get the 150s as there was much praise for them in the old style. The price isn't too bad just no 5fer price as all the rest of the batts offered

Link to tail motor heatsink it works very well. I would say motor is 20-30 degrees F cooler after full battery. I even seem to get less tail drift at last 2/3 battery power. I didn't protect it from a tail crash into 3/4" steel plate bench.

If you have a (Tacoma screw) in your area they can make you a screw for really cheap 10 cents maybe
