My patience with Banggood is wearing thin

I've now had to send this eMail as my patience is wearing forever thinner with this fg company..

Abby,

It's now been 5 days since I received a "faulty" wltoys v911 helicopter, and we don't appear to be progressing with a resolution.

Recent eMails have proved fruitless, including PM's to Mr Aaron Qin at RC Groups message boards.

In order to prevent me initiating a section 75 Visa chargeback or PayPal dispute, I would request that you communicate in a timely manner.

Which would you prefer to do?;
You can either refund the cost of a V911 receiver board, or immediately ship-
WL V911 PCB box Helicopter part
Item No.: SKU026062 (Wltoys-v911-16).

I didn't wish to be so abrupt, but you can probably appreciate that as it stands, i'm stuck with something that hasn't worked from the get-go. My patience has also worn a little thin as i'm beginning to think that i've spent a fraction of my hard earned cash and time on this.

I hope to hear from you ASAP.

Regards,

Damian

I don't recall ever having to deal with a company with customer service as poor as this in my 36 years of existence, really.

If I understand you right, a swashplate for Gen1 or Gen2 Solo Pro (Solo Pro V1, V2, I and II) should be able to be used on the V911.

I've seen parts advertised various places for Solo Pro. I guess if they don't specify which Solo Pro, I can maybe assume its a part that is compatible Gen1 or Gen2.
My thanks too Daryoon, for the concise break-down and Solopro for the work.

Cpuken: I beleive NE SoloPro 260A is the parts you should be looking at.
The swash looks like a great upgrade, inexpensive, higher quality, fast and easy swap-out.

I posted before:
Excess vibration can occur from a "hairline-cracked" Flybar or Main-blade. Blade can crack near narrowing to screw area, if either are cracked... they must be replaced or vibrations will continue and get worse.

The Rotor Head, the part where the Flybar and Main-Blades attach to, are sometimes a little Bent... this will introduce Vibrations too.
Hold heli, spin the Blades against a Light background... and see if your Rotor Wobbles.... if so, remove Flybar and Blades to straighten Rotor easier.

If it still vibrates, well... 1/2 the time I re-assemble the heli.... something is off... upon re-assembly... it's A-OK!

Ok, so you have a nice stable. Can you comment on compatibility of batteries and chargers?

Will any Turnigy (V1, V2, TREX) fit into the V911 and it's charger unmodified?
If I bought the battery connector, could any of the Turnigy be reworked?
I'm really eager to get something with a bit more punch that the stock battery.

Any suggestions, anyone...

this is the 1million dollar question for all of us. No one could ever confirm anything yet, i believe. HK linked one customer to lipos that are supposed to be compatible, but if you look at the images, they seem to be missing the side rail that the v911 batterie have. I went ahead and ordered some samples from HK and also some battery connectors for the v911. it is unfortunate that the v911 battery connector does not come with the actual metal connectors, its just the plastic housing, otherwise you could rework most of the lipos to fit. HK is taking their time to ship my batteries though, stuck "in print queue" for several days

Any orders coming from China... heads up

Thought I'd post this a few places just to give everyone a heads up.
I think most of us had heard about the Chinese New Year possibly delaying any orders coming out of China. Maybe like me you were thinking a couple days delay but that's not the case... when they celebrate, they celebrate
Here's the actual deal:

From Jan 19th,to Jan,28 is Chinese New Year. It takes about ten days.

Chinese New Year is a week long celebration. It gives people time to visit with friends and family living all over the places. The Chinese works hard through the rest of the year. During the New Year, they close shop and celebrate.

Wow, I am glad I ordered before! Mine is now central processing near me, hopefully to arrive at my door either tomorrow or Wednesday. Just in time for rain and I won't be able to fly the 120 sr which needs a couple of minor repairs now...

V911 and Ball Link Pliers

For Heli of this size, are ball link pliers of any real value??

If so , what would you recommend. I see that they come in a variety of sizes and prices.

I made my own ball link pliers from a cheap pair of tweezers using my Dremel, they only took about 10 minutes to do
