Ebay has he parts also, but they are triple Banggood's price. I hope their missing parts is just a Chinese New Year thing.

Orientation exercise: "The forty-fives"


Here is a really good orientation exercise I've been working on. I call it: "The forty-fives"

Place a cardboard box upside down on the floor in the middle of a largish room. This is your spot-landing pad. Imagine 4 lines projecting up from the landing pad at a 45 angle in each of the four cardinal directions; North, West, South and East. The task is to fly up and down each of these upward slanting lines, one at a time, as precisely as you can while holding the yaw fixed in one orientation for all four legs. Once you've completed all four lines with one heli orientation, yaw the heli 90 and fly up and down all four lines again. Repeat for each of the four main heli orientations; tail-in, side in left, node in and side in right. All in all there are 16 "out-and-return" legs.

Once you can do this, move your chair (or standing position) so that you are at a 45 to the landing pad and start all over again to get practice with 4 more orientations.

This is not as easy as it sounds because you must be able to fly (and land) from all directions, all (upright) orientations and all positions. The heli is always changing altitude which exercises your throttle management and gives you a lot of different, (and dynamically changing) viewing angles to test your brain. Your landing skills also get honed.

You'll probably want to break out your 4-channel coax at first - this exercise is really hard to do accurately!

Give it a try!

My favorite figure is a 180 Deg. rotation from a forward bank circle to a backward bank circle. The main difficulty is to keep all aspect of the flight constant, same altitude, same circle diameter, same trajectory, same speed no stopping...maximum fluidity. It can be executed from right/left circle shifting from inside/outside. Although good loud music doesn't really help, it cover the bee sound of the V911 and enhance the flying experience.

I recently bought the V911 and its the first time in my life I managed to fly a remote control anything. Amazing device.
I have a question; its very sensitive ( in either mode ) when turning the nose ( not strafe) - is there a mod to make it less sensitive?

My v911 is twitchy too. I think that is just the way that bird flies. I learned to have a softer touch when using rudder. The more you fly the better you will get, and you will get use to the twitchy feel. It's a fun bird to fly.

Keep em flying....

Ppl have put resistors into the TX to make the rudder stick less touchy. There was plenty of discussion and how to in this thread.

Otherwise, get a programmable radio like the TH9x and you have even better control over your Heli. Number one upgrade for the v911 is a better transmitter.

Search "resistor mod". I installed a switch for mine as well to toggle it on and off. Cost me $2 or $3 and 30 minutes. Well worth the time. It allows for much more precise flying without spending big bucks on a new tx. ( although I recently scored a TH9X with module and receiver for $60 shipped off Ebay.)

Would the turnigy or frysky in a 4ch or even 6ch radio give the same benefits as far as
better control/adjustments?..I would only use the remote to fly 4 channel FP helis
and maybe a WL V929 or similar quad.

The Hobby King V2 or FlySky (not FrSky) will work fine. For a FlySky radio make sure it is the type where the associated receiver has that red shrink wrap on the end of the antenna. I believe the model numbers are FS-CT4C for the 4 ch and CT-6B for the 6 ch. Honestly, for about $25 more the Turnigy 9x is head and shoulders above what you are considering and will be all the radio you should ever need in the future not to mention the superior programming flexibility.

HTH,

Ted
