Nope. No probs with skids, but a big prob with HK chat line.
Ignorant " female B" decided that she had other things to do after she answered just one of my Q's.
Terminated the chat & when I tried again, I got her again & she again, terminated the chat.

I know this is totally off-topic but I'm really cranky about her attitude & actions.

^, Dweenie, didn't Steve say that he was using another models landing skids & they were good for the cold conditions?

yea i believe he uses the wasp landing skids...Im not sure if he had to prefab it to make it work or it screwed right into place...The online chat sucks with hk seems like most of the ppl on there have attitudes or no clue of what there doing or saying...

I'm bought the 9116, first few flights, fab. A lot of fun

Since a minor crash/drop from the sky at low level, the heli seem to have a mind if its own when turned in now.

When I switch the transmitter on and then put the heli on, once you hear it 'pair', the blades spin with NO throttle.

Additionally, I now have the issue of the heli doing a very big pendulum effect. Not just a tiny swaying, but a full swoop around the field.

Any help greatly appreciated. Only just started with outside helis and I'm trying my best to persist and increase on budget. This 9116 dh is a good start I've been told

sounds like your pcb is bad if you plug it in and starts up on its own without throttle input

I only bent them enough to clear the canopy + a bit.
