Just had a chance fly the V911 with new plugs outside. I've been flying the Jiuchon and was hesitant to invest in something new. The V911 is light years ahead - much more zippy. It makes flying much more fun and predictable. This forum has been a welcome resource! To anyone on the fence, I don't think you'll be disappointed with this heli. My Jiuchon is not the heart of a foamie plane I built.

Looks like you would have to flip one of the gimble parts over and or move the friction spring'' to get friction parts in the right place" and move the rocker to spring centering part and spring to other gimble . The graphic display does no change it will show the throttle on opposite side .
'i don't know if mode 1 one radios have this exactly right anyway"the gimbles aren't the easiest things to fiddle with but not rocket science. A second set hands help holding stuff down to get the screws back in.hope this helps you make a decision.

Crap pics didn't move got to 1009
For the trouble you might want get tunigy 6 or 9 channel in mode 1 $29-49 from hobby king"" shipping IDK?""

Are you sure that changing the mode in the program menu (no soldering) moves the throttle control to the right stick and the elevator control to the left stick? In that case, do you think I would just need to follow "Part One" of the procedure in the manual and skip "Part Two"?

Thanks,

By Jiuchon, are you referring to the 9C002? If you are, I agree with you, the V911 is much better than the 9C002.

However, did you know that Jiuchon makes an improved V911? The Y911 (Yellow 911) that people have been praising is made by the same people. They took the V911 and improved on it, making it even more stable, and durable. So, don't write them off too quickly.

Good idea... cheapest one seems to be this Turnigy 6X FHSS 2.4ghz Transmitter and Reciever (Mode 1), which is AUD 48 shipped. Is that what you meant, and is it compatible with the V911?
