@Greg Head. Maybe keep the original skids, and trim the battery holder off. Then use some light velcro to hold the battery on. Also the new style skid my hold your msr batteries in place.

I've about worn that one out since then. I guess I've been really lucky. They're tough little birds.

Well 2 weeks ago my bird went inside my fish tank, pulled the batt out asap & used a blow dryer & it worked fine after that. Just because it was fine that time doesn't really mean it's water proof. lol I'd rather take the extra precaution instead of trying my luck

Also, is it normal for the main gears to wear out / strip after some time? I'm going to buy the main gears, just thinking about whether I should buy 1 or 2 of them..

Hmmm, cheers stoney - never thought about the tx since it doesn't seem to happen on the other birds, but I'll give it a try once the wife wakes up... or give her a rude awakening

I replaced a couple of them, but I fly 4 V911. I advise V911 pilot to slowly turn the rotor of their " normal flying" V911 in theirs hands, if they feel little resistance always at the same spot, the main gear may be slightly broken. A new one will change the sound of flying and could add few seconds to the flight. Probably happen in crashes.

Some updates to my heli

- SP 270 blades
- MSR carbon vertical tail fin
- batterytray flipped 180 degrees (to get weight more forward)
- black Derlin main gear
- some carbon tape over the battery

(still waiting for the Hughes s300 canopy from China)

yup, thats what I noticed.. Some resistance while turning the rotor (though the gear doesn't appear to be damaged).. But I found a short term fix to it..
If the gear touches the motor's gear at the bottom instead of middle, it rotates freely.. So I just stuck a piece of plastic at the bottom which prevents the gear from rising up while blades rotate (and provide lift).. Its working as good as new now!

I was told the v2 connector was an eflite variant but all I see when looking for some sockets to make a charge lead is the smaller eflite spectrum connector.

What is the v2 battery connector called?

Last night I managed my first major repair. I replaced my broken skids, cracked boom and the mainframe. The pin in the front of my skids had broken off in the mainframe I had driven a screw through to hold them in. Anyway, despite my immense pride at a job pretty well done, I noticed that the pinion and main gear don't fit as fluidly as before. when I rotate the blades by hand, I get some binding. I have noticed that my pinion has some wear on it from maybe 50-75 flights. The copter flies flawlessly, albeit a little louder now. I tightened the 2 rx board screws pretty tight which seemed to help a little. Anyone have any suggestions? A new pinion?

These budget birds have wide manufacturing tolerances and there is a lot of variance from bird to bird.

You said "The copter flies flawlessly" and so...

I seen them referred to as "JST PH 2 pin", "micro JST", and a few others. It's the same connector as used in the mcpx.

I've seen that a lot of folks use the black Delrin gear, but does it actually have any advantage over stock or is it just a cosmetic thing?

Thanks

The Delrin gears have fins instead of "spokes" suposed to give a little more lift
