The fact that you (at least appeared to) have them backwards and the heli still flew well is indicative that lift is not an essential element of paddles, but rather stability while reducing weight.

After losing a few weights I put one layer of scotch tape around each end. Cheapest solution yet.

I flipped the paddles, but there was not much change in flight.I noticed I typed backed instead of banked.

Hey everybody...
I am rebuilding my V911. Getting a Bravo SX main motor.
Wondering if there is a good upgrade tail motor or stock is preferred?
Is there a "cheapest" reliable seller?
Also, what are the Hobby King equivalents. I do not see SX on there sight thought Solo Pro FP100 looks close...

Great little copter! Great thread. Thanks M.O.

FP100 = v911 !
What about this complete tail unit ($2.75)
http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-V9...t-p-49036.html

This should also fit ($1.99)
http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Be...0-p-49270.html

I've just checked some cheap 6x14mm motors (10pcs $9.88) I bought several weeks ago (rahter using them for a diy quad):

If you need the short version 6x10mm :

Welp, two part acrylic glue doesn't work for fixing delicate broken bits. Grips the plastic very well but it's not as strong as the plastic. Smells terrible, like burning eyes and "take the skin off your face" bad.

so just glue it with regular CA and stick a CF tube over it for stabilization - thats at least what I did with my mCPX skids (before airtime ...)
(Ok, wont work ALL the time, depending on where it actually breaks, but a lot lot of times its the best way I have encountered so far ... .)

Yeah, my problem is that it broke right at the corner where it both curves and gets wide so a rigid tube won't fit over it. I think for my next try I'm going to put some more of that acrylic stuff on there then shrink tube over top.

My experience with gluing the broken skids was bad. They will keep breaking no matter what type of glue I used. I also tried heat shrink wrap but it wasn't perfect. The easiest way for me is to buy replacement skids. The new version skids are tougher.

My new TX for my 9116 arrived which was to replace one I had dropped causing the antenna to break off. Well the 9116 is not really worth flying now that I have the F45 so I decided to bind the 9116 transmitter to my white V911. Boy does it make a difference. One thing I believe that is different between the white V911 and the WL Toys V911s is the white doesn't seem to have as much forward movement (unless I'm imagining this). Well once you configure the 9116 TX and set the elevator to 100%, boy does it fly fast. Plus you can then adjust your rudder to less sensitive and everything is saved in the TX. I also had to correct my rudder stlightly each time I binded with the default TX, but now I have saved the correction in the new TX.

Great TX for $11 ($7 + shipping)

I gave up trying to fix broken skids, especially the WL toys versions, which are super thin. I fly with skids usually severed at the front.

You should try the new ones. I have not broken those.

Use heat shrink that is slightly thinner diameter than you need, open the diameter a little with needle nose tweezers, place on the skid, use a tiny drop of can to fix the break and then slide the heat shrink over. The heat shrink will have a tighter fit once its heated.


Or just buy the Helios skids which are tougher.

On my Nano I have used a small section of 14 ga stranded wire insulation with the wire removed. This is more substantial than heat shrink and can be CA to the skid. I had to try several different wires to find one that would just slip over the skid. Only problem is it is the weight but, it is a very strong splint that will conform to a curve.
