May I know why is this "worthy" for you? While the canopy is heavier, the main shaft is lighter and the swashplate has a "ball".

Glasses on and magnifying glass...

Mine reads 2012/03/03

Where yours says "JCT" mine is scratched out. Then "R4". Another scratch and finally V01

Without my glasses (and magnifying glass ) hehe. I originally thought they were the same

When I originally posted my post about the YellowBird, I went through my email looking for the receipt, but can't find it. Too much trash to go through to check it. I know it was A LOT FASTER than HobbyKing was though.

Also, after taking the canopy off and back on again, the posts are much more robust than my black and orange "copter". Making the canopy less likely to rub against the servo rods.

Sure, makes perfect sense. I guess I'm surprised they'll ship in it's actual box for no extra charge if one simply asks them too. Not that I'm complaining.

Well, I'm ordering one from a US ebay seller. He said to me it's likely the newest revision, as his stock came from the factory 1 week ago.
Should have it here on Monday....in it's sealed retail box for $44
Can't wait to join the V911 club.

...and thanks to all of you who've been willing to help answer some things for me. So much useful info in these forums, glad I found it.

I notice some metal parts on your V911, and I'm curious to know more about them, if you would? Just bling or performance mods?

For $19.99 and free shipping...when I got my RTF v911 it cost me over $50 and 6weeks to get here.

Banggood allows you to buy the heli with the box now. Simply add the box to your order. $3.79. http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Wl...x-p-46007.html

LOL
They take them out of the box and then sell the box...

Customer service told me they'd leave the heli in the box for shipping at no extra charge.
Although, after reading the product page, I'd say the customer service person was wrong.

I think that's likely what it cost them in additional postage to ship the heli in the box. And they might have added the box as an option in response to your inquire.

Main Shaft Ring

The ring is needed so I had to put it back. I picked a slightly shorter screw and trimmed the ring as shown below:



The left is the original untrimmed ring while the right is the trimmed one. The ring still rubs the swashplate but it is not as bad as before.

I just purchased one here from another user for $30 shipped. Then I ordered a "Copter" canopy instead of the "Corter" one as well as extra blades, batteries, flybar, all for only $15 shipped on eBay.

Are there other parts I should have on standby?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've been searching through the thread and haven't found anything on this problem.

I got three of these helis yesterday and two of them are working fine. The third (red/white) worked great for 3 flights. Now, I can't get it to power up correctly. When I plug in the battery, the LED glows about half brightness, but does not blink. If I continue to plug and unplug the battery, I can sometimes get it to blink slowly, but it won't talk to the tx. I messed with it for a few hours, and twice actually got it to link to the tx and was able to fly it for a full pack.

I'm suspecting a control board issue, but just wanted to see if anyone else has seen something like this. Got online last night and was going to order a new board, but it was almost as cheap to just get a new heli. Banggood had the heli only for $19.99 w/ free shipping, so I just ordered one of them instead. This way I will have spare parts from the old one.
