Flying V911 Inverted

So I have been planing to try inverting my 450 but always chicken out.. since the V911 helped me with head in hover. I decided to modify it to practice inverted on it 1st before trying it on 450. have a look..

Great idea! It's a very good way to get used to inverted orientation

thank you guys... if you want to do the same it is very easy... just need a set of blades from a coax heli.. I used the (B) blades from the drift king (my 1st heli).

This is defenetly helping me with inverted hover. I have been using the SIM but it is not the same thing at least for me. I can hover inverted with the SIM but I think it is harder with the real thing.

Would it just not be enough to put on the v911 blades upside down?

no, you need a set of blades with diferent pitch.

here is a picture

so basicaly I had broken V911 blades, I cut them leaving a small section big enouph to make little holes and mount the drift king blades using little screws.

How do you reverse your throttle?

do you use a different TX?

I have the standard v911 TX

I don't have the original TX, I got the V911 as BNF. so not sure if the original TX has option to reverse channels.

If not and you are handy... you can open the remote and reverse it from the inside... just switch the throttle Potencimetor connections.
