I had issues at first also, I had to hold the throttle down while turning on the TX and inserting the battery at the same time, It took a few times. Make sure your trims are at 0.I read that one member had to switch mode 1 first then back to mode 2.
here is the link to the manual in-case you do not have it.

Would almost bet money that they would ask you to patiently wait.

Note the board is Rev 1. They sent me a very old heli with the old style and one of the batts would not take a charge.

In the pic, notice there is NO crystal to be found!
The picture is hard to see any details. The board is a newer board. Don't let the Rev 01 fool ya. You have to read the whole thing. It is a WL-4CH02R board, so it is a newer. The newer board uses a SMD crystal instead of the cylindrical one.

However, your board not working is a completely different matter.

Are any heli's packaged and sold with the 9X?
The 9116 is considered a decent fixed pitch heli, and for $70 shipped with the Tx from Amazon, it's not a bad deal.

Yeah.. I figured get the 9116 Tx I want for my V911 and get a oversized V911 to boot which would handle more wind for $60. Not sure yet.

What I do know is the new 190mAh 25c batteries I just received work pretty good with my V911. I choose to test them on my first one since it seems to have the most TBE. I have at least 1 min more fly time and have a battery which I can slide back and forth depending on my flying style. sliding it all the way forward allows the V911 to haul ass. . I removed the stock plug and opened the holder up so the battery is snug.

Just weighed everything..

Stock 150 battery 4.5g
miniaviation 190's 4.8g
stock v911 32.6g
stock v911 with miniaviation batteries.. 32.7. yes only a tenth of a gram heavier.

If you're not commuting to the office in it or taking tourists for sightseeing rides, it's a toy. Varying degrees of sophistication for sure, but all still toys.

My order of 5 batteries from Amazon arrived 2 days early

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AAPHZVW This is for my new V911 which has the new type of battery.

The problem... they are EXACTLY the same batteries that came with the Heli in the original purchase when they are supposed to be 200mha batteries. They don't match the markings that were in the listing.

Photo of the batteries that arrived:


The listing had batteries marked like:

While I can't definitely tell you what those marking means, as long as they didn't state the capacity, they could mean anything. They could be location, manufacturing date, etc. Also, we don't know what batteries were used to shoot the pictures they use on the product page. I am advocate that batteries be better and clearly labelled. Each battery should be marked its capacity, cell configuration, voltage, max charge rate and discharge rate. Unfortunately, there is no regulation. But since these batteries are not well labelled, you'll have to test them out the hard way.

The second line on the battery marking could be a date code, a scheme suggested by inactive member proudinfidel a while back. So "LJ20" would mean manufactured on 2012 (L), October (J), 20. The meaning of the first line is anybody's guess.
