unit shipped with the old package.

Aaron,
You might need to explain the prices and differences... I'm not sure I'm following you.

If you mean we can get a lower price if they send the BNF in the current box then I think I can speak for most of us here... the cheaper the price the better, whether it is old box, new box or brown paper bag. Lowest price is best option.

I just received my Red/White V911 today (ordered Jan 9) and it has molded o-rings as well. I would suggest purchasing the Red/White or Blue/White varieties to any potential buyers since they seem to be more recent.

If the canopy now has molded o-rings, then how does that relate to its crash resistance? Can anybody with a Red or Blue one give an opinion.

Yes, the v911 is a direct fit onto the Solo Pro and the Solo Pro's canopy is a direct fit on the v911. The Solo Pro canopy is designed for lightness. So it's flimsy feeling compared with the v911.


My Red/White one has an older RX board than what people have been getting (rev 02). So red does not necessary mean a newer version than the black.

It also did not come with o-rings. But the body stays on very tight so there is no need for them.

The body did appear to have molded in o-rings. But the black replacement canopy I had order also has those same molded parts.

Don't worry. Depending on where you live, Over here in the USA there was a seven day lag between when my package was shipped from HK and when US Customs finally got their fingers on it. It took another week for customs to get tired of it and ship it on to my place.

Unlike others have said, my USPS tracking info was straightforward after making landfall in the states. It was the time it was stuck in HK that it went haywire and broke contact for a week.

definitely cheaper the better, but also keep in mind to package it securely enough to avord any shipping damage.

Nice work on the hard case! I might need to go to harbor freight tomorrow (love that place).


I was flying outside on Sunday and "parked" my 911 in about 12" of water! Totally submerged for 5 seconds, I dove my arm in, grabbed it fast and the light was still blinking. I yanked the battery out fast and ran inside.

I took everything apart on the shaft berings out etc. Dried it for 5 hours, rebuilt it, and it flies just like it came out of the box!! This thing is a flying tank!

Thanks, I updated the post with foam added. Glad you were able to save her. I rarely go out back where my lake is for fear of the same thing happening. If you go to HF, they have a coupon for a digital scale for 9 bucks as well.

Well it's great to see that both WL Toys and Banggood are listening to their customers and offering a BNF version of the V911 as well as looking into possible upgrades for it. I think the price from Banggood for the BNF version should be no more than $25 shipped if they really want to move product. If they do, I may order one for myself, probably with the white and red canopy as I already have the black one.

Also, I would still like for WL Toys to offer a 160mah 25C lipo for the V911 and a more powerful and consistent motor, and of course a better swashplate that doesn't separate. Those changes would make a big difference!

Count me in for 1. I'd pay $30 for it too, I don't need/want another transceiver.

What tx would bind, you would have to have either the original WL or a solopro one?
