So here are some new info:

-Swashplate has been fixed (He said that the newer batches shouldn't experience any problems with the swashplate separating)

-The next batch of TXs will show the correct mode (instead of mode 1 regardless)

- An icon showing Low/High rates is in the works... but probably wont be seen on recent revisions.

Finally, the word "borken" will be changed to "broken" on the main rotors.

I will talk to him again in a few hours because he will provide me with a list of improvements..
anything else you guys want me to pass to him?

I'm really looking forward to future generation V911s
My personal features wish list in addition to the ones already mentioned:

- Clone Solo Pro 270A, Jiuchon 9C002 upper swash hub/ball
- lower profile canopy to prevent flybar strikes
- stiffer frame
- clone Xtreme delrin head setup to fix wobbles
- plug n play main & tail motor over current fuses
- led lighting kit & other canopy shell options

- another model with Bell-Hiller flybar head setup

Apparently the "revised" tail motor holder is a temporary solution, another tail motor holder is in the works and should be better than the current "new" tail motor holder.

The plugs are coming soon too, so if all goes well... they have soved basically all of the issues we have with this great little heli.

I wonder if they can do a RCGroups special edition..though it might run into some copyright issues...

I ordered a v911 board to install in my SP270. It should be a blast!

I think I will do that myself. Remove the lower canopy mounting arms, cut up the canopy to rotate it forward and lower it.

Best,
Chris

Yep IMHO the V911 Rx is a the best replacement Rx option for NE Solo Pro , Bravo SX and 9958 based helis especially with 9x Tx.

1) Not sure if WLToys has already changed the canopy o-rings to rubber inserts into the canopy shell so they don't get lost.

2) They should figure out how to keep the flybar from sagging so much - use a stiffer material (?). I think the sag due to gravity with time is why it causes flybar strikes.

No more borken corter ... LOL

Tell the guy at WLToys that he has a winner of a little heli and with a few more improvements it will only get better.

I'm currently troubleshooting a DIY paddle setup with 4#3 paddles. They are nice and small and light (0.50g each I think) and thus need extra weights next to them. I've yet to get it flying perfectly, too unstable right now. What is the length between the paddles in a well working setup?

I prefer lighter, and farther out than heavier and closer to center. With them mounted farther out, they have more leverage in windy situations.

My favorite was when they were mounted on the tips of the Xtreme CF flybar. Lots of paddle leverage yet very fast head speed. The 19mph day that alot of doubters are disputing were done with that setup. Regardless of what the actual windspeed was, it was the worst wind I've flown my V911 in and was able to keep her under control.

What's the length of the CF flybar? I've got a new one in the making, maybe I need a longer one.
