Lbr,
These motors are not the Extreme Pro's though.
They are from AFC Systems. (Don't know if they're the manufacturer of the 180 Pro's.)
& if you consider the small slots at the top of the end bell & the semi-open "brush assy" as ventilation holes, then it has some.

No slots in the can though.

For letsstart78,
You say that the TX works with another heli but not with the 9116?

If you're losing signal when moving away, then it maybe the heli's main PCB.

Do you have a spare?

They do look very much the same as the twin set Xtreme sell for the esky double engined coaxial. Pinion gear in the same position too.

Hey! You've seen one 180 motor....you've seen them all almost all.
Slots a good. Slots are necessary.

I also received my 3rd Tx today. It bound to the 9116 nicely, so...
I transferred the aerial/mixer PCB over to the 2nd, faulty one, that I'd already modded.
I now have a good, spare Tx.


Anyone good a SMD soldering?
I think the aerial connection is stuffed on the faulty one.

Yeah, I saw that one but I just can't "see" the damn small components/pads anymore.
& I don't have a small enough iron.

"The whole truth & nuttin' but the truth."
The 2nd Tx I got has the fault. i.e. it will not bind.
This new one, #3, works fine, but seeing as I jumped the gun with the 2nd one & modded the crap out of it.
I then found out that it would not bind.
I inspected it's innards & saw the aerial was wrongly soldered but it's way too small for me
to fix.
Hence forth, I just changed the new PCB over to the modded one.

The bottom line is that I'm getting a replacement for the faulty Tx after the Chinese New Year celebrations are over & they get them back in stock.

You want a spare, faulty Tx?

Strange though Steve, that the Tx binds with the other heli....or so he says.

I checked the tx with v911 so no problem..

....i got the steady LED but when the tx away from the heli i lost the signal...

Nope. They don't want it returned coz I gave them good reason why I wasn't going to.
Return shipping of $24.00 or there-abouts is way too much for a $7.00 TX & I told them I
wouldn't spend that kind of $$ on a faulty unit.
See above for the result.

Will send it, the brand new case, with faulty PCB, one along with a few other goodies when I receive them.

No $$$ necessary.
Thanks.

Hello gents. The 3.8mm ball studs I purchased on eBay arrived yesterday and fit the mixing links perfectly. The bad news is that I had to approximate the holes for the threaded ends of the ball studs on the printed mixing arms and they will be too big, as in over .5mm too big! I don't plan to print another set since shipping is $6.50 and I had the first set printed up with a few new chassis to offset the cost.

My lesson learned? Be more patient and take actual measurements instead of guessing...

Good price on V912

My second thought is V912?
Apparently I can't trust reviews on YouTube... I trust you guys :-)
Banggood has the V912 for $79.00 with free shipping. If I was starting again I would definitely get that before the DH9116. It's basically an improved 9116 and WL Toys has a better reputation for qc.

As Bair 14 said, it won't teach you much, but not everyone aspires to be another Bert Kammerer. For some of us it's the journey, not any destination or skill level that counts.
I have a brother in law that has been flying a stock 9116 for approx. 8 months now on slow rates. He tried high rates once for about 2 minutes and gave up because it was too hard for him. Now don't get the wrong idea about him, he's no moron. He owns two beautiful houses, one up north and one in the south and makes lots of money.

He is about an enthusiastic a flyer as you will ever meet and flies every chance he gets. He's having a ton of fun and will probably never progress to anything more difficult. Does it matter? Not in my opinion. Fun is what this is all about. Just my 2 cents for what (if anything) it's worth.
