I would rather pay more for the parts and shipping then have to wait 2 weeks for them to figure out what to do. As soon as I get my money back I will be ordering from the place linked earlier, now just how long will it take BG to refund my money plus what I paid for expedited shipping, I will give them till midnight tomorrow then I will start to move from frustrated to angry

Time to start looking for a new heli that you can actually get parts for when you need them without having to jump through hoops, too bad because the V911 is really a fun one to fly
What about solo pro parts, they are sold on hobbyking very cheap (add postage though) or elsewhere?

I was just there checking and they don't have tail motors in stock and I know mine is starting to go because I am always having to trim the yaw and it is starting to get hotter each time I fly it

I am pretty much done with over seas shopping, the communication barrier is just a bit more than I can handle

I thought you said the motor spins all the time, even with the Tx turned off. If so, then the only way the motor could be getting power without any commands by the TX is if there was some kind of power short to the motor wires.

Last order I got from Banggood took slightly over 60 days to get to me ... yes, not a typo ... 60 days. I think they are sending stuff by boat, not plane to save shipping costs. How does it take over 60 days otherwise?

i ordered a new tail motor from myrcmarts (arrived in 10 days... this is the fastest shipping for me until now).
Installed it, and the heli seems way slower then it was before. Is this possible? Everything works perfect, just slow.
Motor aint hot, but a little bit noisier then the original.

You want a V911 tail motor from a US vendor, here's helircstore.com

Nope, its still out of stock. I am set up to get an email notification when it is available from them though.

BG refunded my money very quickly, but there was no product exchanged, just the money out of my account. Only thing is that now PayPal has put a temporary hold on my account while they review the transaction. I know that they just did it to protect the seller, but its a little frustrating that I have to wait till they look at my refund before I can order parts from a different supplier. Oh well maybe by the time PayPal gets everything sorted out the other store will have my tail motor.

If there are no shorts on the PCB, the transistor controlling the tail motor is done. Sorry to say you may need a new RX.

BTW, did you replace the tail motor with another make by any chance?

On low rate I think it is on the slow side but we could always use a big rudder as the max yew rate is not changed. If it is too slow for you, increase the value of the resistors.

I fired up my old camera. Here comes the picture.

Hope you can see the two resistors I added inside the red circle.

Enjoy.
I liked this mod! I have to do it my self. I might try 1.5 kohm, what do you think?
Best should be to have a 2-pole push-switch mounted att the top left silver-button connected to the resistors. I just have to find a switch that fits.
