As for a review I will be doing one, but at the moment I am in the middle of moving house on Wedhesday, but it is going to take anything up to 1 month to get the internet sorted out.

Fortunately it wasn't badly damaged even though it dropped from just under 10m. The repairs were quick and easy.

nice flight but the damage could be not from falling but from smashing into lamppost. hitting iron things is never good for heli

Ah yes good idea. It can be really hard to work out where to start.

All the best with the move, hope your internet isn't down for too long!

That got me laughing pretty good, thanks!

I have tried the stop watch idea. (Went to WalMart and bought a cheap $10 watch with alarm and stop watch) The problem is; I get to fired-up to fly and don't always remember to use it until I'm already in the air.

I'm pretty sure I can get this thing back in the air, but I think I'm going to take your advise and order a second F45....LOL, I'm quite certain there will be some pile-up's in the near future.

BTW, is anyone selling a BNF version of the F45?

I can get you a bnf version from LHS here for just $77 (excl. shipping).
As for the new Esky D700 3D 6channel RTF, I can get you one for just $252 RTF (excl. shipping).

Are you interested?

Just bought the Wild Scorpion lipo battery but as you can see it's using t-plug connector. So I also bought the conversion plug t-plug to jst.. I'm just wondering whether based on your experience & knowledge, will it be okay to use with MJX F45? Is there any risk to damaging any parts of the heli later on? (I'm using stock motor and everything is stock parts)



Wild Scorpion 7.4V 1500mAh 25C LI-PO 2cell RC Battery
Voltage: 7.4V
Capacity: 1500mAh
Discharging rate: 25C
Charging rate: 2c
Battery: 2cell
Size: 15.6x35x68mm
Weight: 82g

One more thing, can someone tell me why my tail wobbling up and down especially in the air? and also it's flying more backward including the wobbling issue no matter how I trim it. I'm still using the stock battery, I just crashed my heli the other day and I've changed the tail boom and the blade.. but suddenly now I'm getting the wobbling issue. What exactly can cause the heli to wobble up and down?

That battery will work just fine.
Check the flybar links and flybar for damage. Also check the blade holder for damage and looseness. If the blades can flop up and down, bobbing will occur.
It should be something above the swash plate.

Whoa, I dont know what happened , but I just got 3 pages of updates for this thread from the site today.

Thanks for the input on this Shenzen Huowang guy, I did get back to him and made mention that in 14 days the tracking should have moved along. No reply this time, I think on monday that I will file a dispute with Aliexpress and once I get some more money in a few weeks , order a F45 from some one else.

Man , I was so psyched out about getting this heli......

I was just laying back, had the earphones turned-up rocking-out, enjoying the vid, then I let out a giant.... OH $H!T....!! Hahahahaahaa! I'm glad to hear the damage was minimal.

I always enjoy the vid's rexless, keep'em coming,

BTW.....Due to the fact that you're a Canadian, I believe it to be your civic duty to mix-in at least one song from RUSH in your next vid.
