The "experiment" never lasted more than a few seconds since the blue/white was nearly at the ceiling (2.30m) while the yellow was about a metre off the ground.

Is this difference in reaction to the throttle due purely to the 2g weight difference, or does anyone have any other theories?
From my personal experience of owning a number of all versions of v911's, I'd found that there is a sizable variance in the motor strengths, which translates to lift, even among birds of the same version. So what you observed is not surprising.

It will also plug into a Walkera style battery plug to test.
Thanks for that Steve. I tried that and nearly had to change my underpants Any way to turn the buzzer off? While I'm at it, to save me asking any more questions about the thing, does anyone have a link to instructions on use for it?

Thanks

Edit: Forgot to say, it works on the old batteries as the poles are the right distance apart, but on the new ones they're too close together.

Mechanical/manual trim thread, it should be mandatory reading for us new owners.

In short, cancel your controller trims and adjust the lengths of the servo connectors first, to get a neutral hovering trim.

Once done there is no real need for any trim on the right controller stick, indoors anyway. You will likely still need to trim the rudder per flight.

If this doesn't solve it, look for stock swashplate separation or linkage binding near the head which can cause TBE/precession. But I expect you just need mechanical trim.
Thanks! I'm going to try that today, sounds like that will do the trick.

The linkage is ok I think, I checked for play and/or binding and they all felt good. The problem is it just doesn't want to hover without input from the transmitter. I'm going to try the method in the link above and see if that does the trick.

Thanks for the help so far guys!

It will sound off when you first plug it in or whenever voltage drops to somewhere around 3.4v per cell. Only option I can see would be to disable alarm permanently.

Anyone tried the Blade MSR paddles?
http://www.miracle-mart.com/store/in...oducts_id=8593

Some guy on youtube said it makes the heli more responsive AND be able to handle more wing outside i.e. making the heli controllable with stronger winds.

Try searching this thread with "msr paddles". Be amazed at what you might find

(I am sure I know y who you are referring to - as for me personally, I cant say how they work in wind as I dont fly outside, but it was definitely a huge improvement inside ...)

Oops ! Don't think I want to go opening it up, so maybe it's time to have another look for my multi meter.

I suppose I need to get my F45 first and plug the tester in before I can mess around with the voltage settings... correct?

Thx guys, i will just order it through xheli.
yes the v911 is only $32.00 at the moment, but the $16.00 shipping bumps it up a bit. i found it funny how before the sale xheli had the v911 up for $34.00 and the shipping was $2 cheaper at $14.00. but after the item was placed on sale $2 cheaper, they raised the shipping $2 to cover the cost..... but its been the same all across the site. makes you think its a good deal until you see the outrageous shipping cost they charge you for such a small package.

You can make connectors with plastic clothes pins also. Two screws through one side connected to the wires and simply clip the pin onto the battery.

I flew 2 sp260s at the same time and had a ball until they started to drift away and made me panic. both had about the same amount of power and response.

I could see how you don't want to read the entire long thread. But read at least the 1st post and the FAQ there. Your question was answered there. If you tried to use the search function and look for 9x, you'd see that many of us have been using, or buying that exact Tx.
Thanks sir!
I actually did read the first page, but having modules in Tx are new to me, just wanted to confirm certain things. Anyway, appreciate all your inputs, Thanks!
