I guess Banggood doesn't offer price protection do they.
tmart dropped from 89 to 79 after I ordered.

EDIT: I found this image and it looks pretty beefy, but still no idea what size it is...

Have never done business with Tmart before so really can't say how quick it will come, but there price was one of the best I found when considering the free shipping. I have mainly spent my many years in this hobby flying RC Airplanes...so some of these retailers selling these little heli's are new to me, but I am hoping my experience with some of these across the ocean retailers is a positive experience.

I was impressed T-mart not only took back Ladybird but sent shipping label . No cost to me and replaced bird. They sent tail motor and did not expect that. Orders have been accurate and no 3 week wait. Four or five days you are flying your order. Not all items are USA. X-heli has extreme out of stock, but some very good deals. Wow Hobbies have deals sometimes ut costly shipping.
Direct heli fast and good folks/ Club heli, good folks. Bang good good/ Ali-express, good. Hobbyking has extensive items and good shipping. Some items not to good.

sarivaly i informed tmart today that i ordered a 912 for 89.99 but got a notice it was out of stock, when it came back in stock it was 79.99 and they sent it out
but I still paid 89.99, so we'll see if they give me a 10.00 credit.

My V912 arrived today at work from Banggood.
Box was well packed and is in perfect shape.
Order was placed Jan 7 and arrived today 9 days later via the free shipping. Not bad at all!

Looking forward to the unboxing after work.

I wanted it to fly forward faster so I reduced the weight of its rear. I removed the two tail boom supporting rods, and the horizontal tail fin. It improved forward flight slightly. To really allow the bird to go forward fast, the servos throw need to increase. Sadly, the transmitter does not provide as much throw as I want.

Hi Fyre

Have you figured out what top right button does on the TX?
Nothing shows up on the screen when I press it.

Is a dummy button?

Top-right button of the TX

If I remember correctly, the top-right button cannot be pressed. It is not a button.

But the 4 buttons to the right of the LCD screen, I'm not sure. I don't remember they do anything useful.

Tx

Here is a pic from the included manual. It's messed up. I like WL stuff but they
seriously need to hire someone fluent in English and Chinese to write these manuals.

On my tx in mode 2 the buttons with the red arrows do this:

pressing rudder conversion gives my high / low rates
pressing accelerated beeps but does nothing
pressing any of the four slices of the round button at bottom right does nothing, not even beep.
What gives?

The problem is not with the english. Even the Chinese descriptions are wrong! Haha! The acceleration button does not work, the light button does not on/off the LED light, and the photography button also does not work because there isn't a camera installed onto the helicopter.

Simply put, there is only a high/low rate button, two control sticks, trims, power switch, and buttons to switch between Modes 1 to 4. Nothing more.

Yes, it's a shame because the tx is a good size, looks nice, but they could have added a few more features.

I tried to bind it to my 9X but was not successful.
I wonder if anyone has been able to do it or if there even is a slight possibility to do so.
