Got the MP replacement board a few days back. Thanks! putting it all back together again today was a piece of cake. Of course count on me to lose the those small screws that secure it but luckily I had other ones that fit right in.
Nice to have it back to life again. After flying Planes all day, and after not having it operational for a few days, it was a pleasure seeing how stable and how it just hovers effortlessly in your living room (in a mini-miraculous sort of a way).

Of course also count on me to put it all back together with the battery opening oriented the wrong way (side to side, as oppose to front to back where the antenna is). I didn't notice any adverse affects, but if you think I should rotate it back please let me know...

I am looking forward for more fun with it tomorrow....

Hey Arnav, been there done that Glad she's back in the air. The only drawback I can see is that in a crash the battery holder's sides are the weak point and now that weak is exposed to the direction of most crashes (well at least in my case). It shouldn't affect flight being turned 90 degrees though.

I believe you meant to say "it should not affect flight."
Unless I'm missing something?

Actually I think the battery will come out less. You could cut some toothpicks to size and super glue them on each side of the battery holder rails to beef up that area.

Yeah, I am trying to think about light weight ways to beef up that area to avoid battery ejections. Maybe the manufacturer can enhance the die to have a smaller version of an enclosure such as this for the base of the MP.

I removed the '/' from the description and replaced it with 'aka'. I'm betting that's what's scewing up the software. I'll take care of your order bud, the connector is on us, thanks.

Awesome, you guys are great. It really is nice to have a US based dealer for these parts and not have to wait 5-6 weeks from China. Thanks again!

Got my MP today, ordered it Sunday, fastest delivery I ever had, even with Christmas. Sure wish I found your site before I spent $210 for two 1SQ's for myself and my son. Love the MP's lights! With the great customer service, you guys will go far!

+1 MO, keep this up and you guys might wanna think about asking for investors if you haven't already. Just make sure you let me know when you do.

Thanks BD, things are really picking up now that the word is getting out. We still need Facebook likes though.

Actually our Hubsan order was bought with 1/3 investor money, but it was a former co-worker. Gave him 10% return in 3-4 months but there's no contract or anything, just my word to him and the safety of Escrow service.

Not sure if this has been discussed already. Does the V202 have to be rebound to the TX each time like the V939?
