URL? I tried looking for it at amazon but 949 didn't come up with any quad copters. of course, I'm seeing the 929 called a "UFO" and "X-copter"...

Woot! Thank you. Added to wish list. I guess it was buried in the searches when I first tried. I should have tried limiting it to Toys and Games.

Does anyone know if these batteries fit the V949 ??

http://www.amazon.com/2-Pack-3-7-vol...ds=500mah+lipo

As long as I was ordering the v949 from there, thought I would just add on a couple batteries.

Thanks.

Thread been sitting with no post since Oct 6.

Anybody get a v949 in from Bang Good yet? We've got any order sitting, waiting to be fulfilled for over a month now. Originally, they promised stock on Sept 15.

Sep 13 - ordered v949 and other stuff
Sep 19 - notice of backorder, asked if I wanted to split the order (get the other stuff now) - I said yes
Sep 24 - got notice of shipping (5 days after I said yes, ship the other stuff). Not sure what was shipped...their shipping notification listed my whole order but when I go to my Banggood account online, my order shows the split and when I go to split order it still says backorder.
Sep 26 - this is when the order actually shipped (according to the shipping company).

They took the money on Sep 13 - so much for what they say about not charging you until the items are ready to ship. I don't really care but I do care about selling things that aren't in stock without disclosing it.

Several emails to banggood and still don't know what's happening. The last email was them asking me for the order number, which I included in my original email question! When you get a reply from them it doesn't include your original email - no wonder they don't know what order is mine....at this point I'd have to say their service sucks. My first few orders were ok but this is nonsense. I ordered a product in stock (as a birthday gift which will not be here in time now) only to have it labelled backorder 6 days later and then hear that people who ordered later got the product. LIFO vs FIFO?

Heli Pad ordered the v949 on 8/30. His cousin ordered after us. His cousin just received his, and HeliPad is still awaiting his order to be shipped out. That's messed up!!

I also am still waiting. Ordered two pc. plus several spares inluding a couple of V949 pcb's for converting the original V929. Not seen anything yet. Orders I placed on Sept. 11th. But hey I'm not complaining... free shipping though.

Hey everyone, I understand how excited you guys must be about receiving the new version quad, and wltoys assured us that we would receive the products on time.

However due to the supplier messing us around (we are also feeling extremely aggrieved by this) by giving different dates of when we would have the product available.

As a token of goodwill, here at Banggood we would like to offer an apology and also a 2 tigers battery to the v949 for anyone who was affected by this, just drop me a PM, that’d be amazing.

Really Sorry for this.

That's a good move by Banggood. I wonder why WLtoys failed to deliver the products. My wild guess is they discovered faults with the initial design and are fixing the V949 now; or they are getting the new transmission protocol onto the new V949 boards.

There are rumors that they would be moving towards a proprietary transmission protocol. Particularly, the new version of the "6-axis" V939 is incompatible with the TX of the V929 or V911.
