Yeah, I don't know which crack came first but one may have caused the other. It also broke off that little nub/tab on the other blade.

Mine was shaking so often that I was just going through everything trying to find the cause. When I took the main blades off I saw the problem. It wasn't a occasional shake, it would do it pretty much any time I was hovering.

Even when "normal" mine gets similar shakes from time to time. I think that may be related to the general looseness of the blades on the hub. Side-to-side play can be fixed with a washer. This isn't so bad because it doesn't do it very often so I haven't really tried to fix it.

Wow, I am truly sorry I mentioned that T-mart had the new style from US Warehouse. Seems like everyone is getting the older style

Definitely not your fault MD, it says this right on the item description:

NOTICE:

Presently we have two versions of V911. This is the latest one that is different from the previous one. The batteries, landing skids and charger boxes of two versions are different, and the other accessories of two versions are the same.

I just completed 200 flights on my red & white V911. I haven't broke anything and nothing burned out. That's about 16 hours flying. I crashed lots and lots of times. A few of those crashes where very hard, but not one thing broke.

I have 4 130mah batteries, I have been charging them at .5 of an amp which is probably too much but they still work fine.

I did glue down the tail motor wires and the the crystal on the board when I got it.

I would have to say you got your moneys worth out of that bird. The big ones are not as graceful when they crash. I hope I get similar millage out my 2.

Not only that, the product name is different.

The blue/white and red/white v911s have NE battery connectors.
The blue v911 and red v911 have eflite battery connectors.

The blue v911 is actually blue/white but that product name was already used.

Glad to have your blessing! I saw you have or had a solo pro 100d and had a love/hate relationship with it. How's it now? Sorry for OT.
