looks like they're a popular item at the moment, cos there's a back order time of 2 weeks

Try the 150 mAh's instead, cheaper and better.

Already have them for my heli with the old style plug. Suppose I could just buy a bunch of the old style skids, but I think I'll just use up the batteries I have and hope that by that time they've brought out the new style 150mAh

Hey guys, I just made the step up from my v911s and thought I'd share.
I picked up a Genius CP w/ a Devo 7. It's a bad ass little machine. Incredibly fast. I was going to get a FBL FP heli but decided to jump right into cp. The great thing about this heli is that if you leave it in Flight Mode "normal" w/ the 6 axis gyro "on" it's basically a FP heli . I don't know if it's as tough as the 911 but I crashed it a few times tonight and it still good.

Congrats on that!
I did the "in-between-step" trying out the mSRX and the supermini FP but the little bit I did try to fly these, I would claim they are almost more problematic to deal with than the mCPX I got after those - or even more so the NanoCP (which is literally the same size as the 911 and ALMOST as crash resistant to my perception... .)
If the Genius is anything like the Supermini (both walkera) and you are NOT crashing it the way I did my supermini, I am pretty confident it will hold up very well (I did about 50 flights with easily 3-4 times that many crashes - and some of them full frontal into walls - before my supermini would suddenly not react anymore despite the LED being on ... so I guess I @#$%^$# up the board (and for what that costs to replace I might as well buy a new bnf - which I wont because I started focusing totally on nano and mCPX .... .)

Anyway, enjoy flying your Genius (I bet you it will get waaaaay more airtime now than the 911 ... no matter how good this little clone is (thats just the way it goes ...)

There are no v911 main gear upgrade as far as I know, people have swap the stock swash (if you have the wl toys version) with the 'fisheye' swash (search in banggood website) and some reported improvement, some not. The yellow and white bnf's already have the fisheye swash.

I thought the Delrim main gear would work from
the solo and the swash plate from the solo also? I ask because
It looks like there are different part numbers, I may be wrong.

This is a set of 2 black delrin main gears that I an confirm work with the v911 with no mods necessary. Stock main shaft. Good deal too.

That's the one I was looking at. Thanks for the verification. Now just need to find out about the swash plate. Was thinking about picking up another v911, but wasn't sure if it would work with the other v911 controller.

No problem! I got a fisheye swash from the same seller (no longer has them). For my v911, it was a fail. Made it vibrate more. That doesn't seem to be the normal experience, however.

Yeah, I was originally looking at the Super FP, but the Genius was only slightly more $$$. I did manage to break the skids on a hard landing last night but it doesn't effect flight at all. So far I crashed it about 10 times indoors in 4 flights. When I took it outside I tried to open it up a little but it got away from me so quickly that I just hit Throttle Hold and let it drop in the next yard. She's super quick.
Unfortunately I seem to have a defective tx. The "DN" function button doesn't work. Seller is giving me the run around and saying I don't know how to program it. So it looks like I have to send the tx back to Cali and wait for a replacement. 2 weeks at least. Major pain in the ass.
