very sad to have the tx arrive borken .
dark and windy out now and I don't want to bash around in the little house.

Alas Tony, I had the same problem with one of mine. Fortunately I have two, so I was able to use the one transmitter on both hellis. I took the broken transmitter apart and the upper post on the (starboard control stick) was missing and it was also pushed out of its cradle. I think it was damaged in shipment. I managed to get it all back together but couldn't replace the missing post. I can fly with it but no left/right movement on the helli. Got a replacement coming on the slow boat.

If you can relay how you fixed yours, maybe I can figure out a way to fix my broken one.

Thanks,

Jim

Yeah, my local church. It's definitely a great place to fly!

No helis allowed at yours? What a bunch of party poopers :-P

The walls are very solid - a swoop of my v202 into it broke my ladybug cover, heh.

Thanks for the encouragement, Jim! Apart from the wall incident I also hit a metal chair leg on landing of my v912 which sounded bad but not even a ding in the blades, thankfully :-)

I am curious about the V912, for comparison, what is the main rotor diameter size ? DH 9116 is 380 mm , Walkera CB180Z is 440 mm.

Thank you

I've used the CB180Z blades on my 9116 but switched over to the Novus 200 FP blades (part # HMXE8309) for 2 reasons. They are an exact fit on diameter (no trimming required) and more durable than the Walkera blades. The Walkera blades shattered easily if they hit anything. Both need a 5/32" drill bit to enlarge the hole for attachment. Both blades are stiffer than the stock 9116 blades if that's what you're looking for.

I have those 2 helicopters. Just wanted to compare the size. Rotor diameter is more reliable then fuselage length.

Walkera blades are fragile. The last time I ordered blades for my Walkera, I received 10 blades for a cheap price from China. The graphic , the same as my old blades, is not very clear, I thought they were probably copies. You know what, I didn't break a blade since that ! they can take more strike then original blades.

Mine are attached to the long arms on the swash plate and the short arms on the mixer. The long arm on the mixer is then attached to the flybar. They came that way and I have not made any changes.
