I think you'd be interested in reading Daryoon's latest blog and click on the Hacksmods link.

I like the concept of the all in one main shaft drill jig for 9958, Bravo SX, MSR, V911. I plan to get one.

I just noticed the price increase for V911 parts at MyRCMart.

Probably because parts are scarce? Didn't someone mention that WL Toys is not producing spare parts. But using all the parts they produce for assembly into actual v911 helicopters? I guess the demands for this heli is exceeding what the factory can produce.

Even MyRCMart has a disclaimer that they won't get new parts until Feb.

it happened whilst i was raising an order, just got down to the last item updated quantities and wham!!!

took me 5 mins to find out where the extra 30 quid charge came from, now banggood prices are better once you take into account of the carriage, oh well they lost out on over 200 dollar from me

I think I saw somewhere that some of these are landing in California as their 1st stop in the states...
You may not have to wait as long as you think...
Maybe...

It seems they come into the US through New York instead of LA ... so us guys on the West coast have to wait longer.

Thanks to CPUKen for going through all of the trouble of scanning & uploading the manual for us! I merged the 2 PDF's and made one single PDF manual out of them if anyone prefers it that way

Who else sells the Turnigy 9X? HobbyKing lists it as "out of stock" and says it could be as much as 30 days till they get it back in stock. I was all set to pull the trigger on this tx.
