Is this correct and is it usually like this on the transmitter ?
Thanks
That is correct for Mode 2, which is pretty much the standard here in the US. Mode 1 has throttle and yaw (rudder) on the right stick and pitch (elevator) and roll (ailerons) on the left.

I'm sure that's the seller's shipping weight. I fly with those canopies, and I can assure you they are much lighter than stock. They are very thin vacuformed plastic, and the door areas are wide open. I tried to weigh one, but it doesn't even register on my cheapie postal scale. I found that I had to physically trim the the heli to go more forward because of the lighter weight of the canopy. The paper thin E-Flite MCX S300 is even lighter yet.

Thanks mate, it was quite long time ago, and I couldnt remember correctly...maybe it was some problem with my mSR...maybe a tail motor problem...(due it was annoyingly slow one direction...it couldnt have been normal....) My 120SR didnt suffer with that issue, at least it was just hardly noticable...

Thanks,
Could you also tell me please the steps to bind the heli to the tx since I hear all these conflicting ways. And what is the advantage of having a metal head replaced? Does it make it more stable ?

I may have added some confusion. The yaw rate (rotational speed about its vertical axis) turning left and right should be the same, but the forward speed changes as you turn. Turn right, and it goes forward faster. Turn left, and it goes forward slower. I hope this cleared it up.

To bind the heli to the stock tx:
  1. Insert battery into heli.
  2. Place heli on level surface. ...or hold it very still and very level. This allows the gyro to calibrate.
  3. Make sure the throttle stick on the tx is all the way down,
  4. Turn the tx on, and wait for the beeping to stop.
If all went well, the heli should be bound and ready to fly.

I don't think there is an advantage to the metal head. I think it just ads weight, thereby shortening the flight time, unnecessarily overheating the motors, etc. I think it's just for looks.

The yaw rate was different to right / left with the mSR...so with the V911 is it the same?

Hard to say, both directions are fast (stock tx). But left turns are tighter than right turns due to the natural right-ward lean.

Yeah, the yaw rate is faster than anybody needs. The poor, poor little guys flying in there must get dizzy! I doubt if you'd notice if the left and right yaw rates were different.

Give the V911 a try, and I'm sure you'll be pleased with it.

The batteries LOOK ok, but when I see a professional seller has < 99.5% positive feedback, and especially when I read his replies to the negative feedback, I don't think I'd have bought anything off him.

Reckon e2 could be right about you having the new-style batteries though...

I have seen only 120mah cells for the new plug version WL Toys v911: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-5-...t-p-52374.html
