Thanks. Yeah, it must have flown okay when I first modded it, or I would have noticed it sooner. I think I put it away for a while (possibly after a wreck, or just to fly planes), and when I came back, it was acting up noticeably.

Still a bit odd that the stock flybar would "fix" (or at least mask) the problem.

Probably a servo or control rod issue. I'll reset it all from the ground up and see what happens. Maybe even swap the servos and see what happens.

After a few weeks with my 450, this one doesn't seem as intimidating.

that was my experience anyway....
Thanks for your feedback, your experience does not sound all that encouraging.

I have rubber o rings that might act as a dampening force, plus I can probably experiment with different distances under the flybar, but not holding my hopes and will report back once my motor arrives.

you're going to want the i6 charger anyway to make sure your batteries aren't being abused or becoming unbalanced.

as far as the cable, I may have an extra here soon, I could send you if you still need it.I'll post when the extra comes in.

Every hausler rtf comes with that wire, post in the classifieds that you need that wire someone is bound to have a few extra lying around.
maybe ask in the hausler thread.

From what I can see in the pic the mixing arms on the MJX-F645 are offset when looking at the pivot point. That would lesson the movement up to down from the flybar perhaps. I noticed the V912 mixing arm is the same.

If you look at both birds from the side, is the maximum angle of the flybar the same?

I wonder if every other manufacturer knows something that
Double Horse does not?

See photos:
Interesting, I wonder if the V912 arms will fit. Might order some.

Have a set from Banggood ordered. Lead time looks long tho with their New Year thing. $1.00 delivered.

Could you explain the physics of latency in relation to the flybar, I am not understanding?

Hi Guys..........just an update from last and thanks again for all your replies and help. The vendor I puchased from is sending a new TX, at least thats the note I received on ebay.

Next, I have a question, regarding the PCBs, if and when I have to replace my pcb, am I going to have to do soldering??? because it looks like in the photos online of replacement 9116 pcbs that there are no battery leads connected...........I hate soldering and am not very good at it..............but it looks like I may no choice but to learn and get good at it !
