Chek the three solder points where tabs go through the RX board at the top of the servo.
If you decided to resolder them, try to use very little heat.
They connect in ternally to plastic parts that melt easily.

You can buy replacement servos (banggood qty five).
I did that, but by the time I got it fied and all, I wish I had just bought a new BNF instead.

Look inside the servo to check if anything stuck on the gears. if you find a broken gear, see if it can be reused by turning it around.

Just 3 screws to remove. It is easy.

I found a piece of debris from the casing inside mine. Clean it up. It has been working fine since.

Thanks. Very little heat. Ooops! LOL
Live and learn. Probably why it doesn't do anything now. I'll get a BNF.

Thanks, that's the first thing I tried (having seen your earlier post) and everything was ok.

Just received my V911 and love it. Flys great and so stable. Quick question about dual rates on the stock transmitter. Does the top left button turn it on and off? How do I know what the setting is? There does not seem to be an indicator on the display.

The question on dual rates has been coming up on several occasions. James, you might wanna include this in the first post.

To determine high or low rates, simply move the stick for aileron and elevator. If it shows all 4 bars, you are at high rate. When the TX powers up, it is always at low rate.

Well after all the cleaning, laundry and preparations for a fathers day dinner with my wife and i's parents I had enough time to fly 4 batteries worth outside. The wind of the past few days had died down to light and variable (have a home weather station in backyard. I can tell you this much: V911 flies way better than original mSR. Way better! it's a tad larger so it is easier to see and i had fun chasing the dog around the backyard. The cats didn't seem to mind.

I do have trouble flying circuits to the left compared to the right though. This could be lack of flying time on my part though.

I'm really going to enjoy this little heli and can't wait for the TH9x to show up along with 2 spare BNFs.

Since the can was on the floor you fought against massive turbulence..

Perhaps the challenge should be reworked to

Landing on a tuna can that is on the edge of a table

or

landing on a tuna can that is on a can of coffee on the floor or table

to reduce turbulence and then it becomes more about pinpoint accuracy rather than waiting

Wow well done pancari, truely a difficult task, i will keep trying and hopefully someday will land it... Is your 911 stock? I have made no mods to mine yet and flybar strikes are annoying, what mods do u guys recommend for precision flying?.. When trimmed it flys pretty good but does sway a little bit instead of perfectly still in hover.

As long as I don't command suddenly direction changes, there would not be flybar strikes. Even during high rates, banked turns if executed smoothly and gently, the flybar should not strike the canopy.

Try bending the flybar upwards. Apply a little heat using a hair dryer to make the bend permanent. It helps.

Perform mechanical trim (permanent, persistent) so that you need not trim it every time you power up the TX.

First real damage

Tail motor got hit :




It didn't work in this condition , and didn't work after I pushed the back part back to the motor cylinder with nose pliers .
Any point in trying to save it ? (I got my BNF for now , until next crash )
