OK, OK, OK. Take a look at your V911 box if you have one.
I no longer have one. Look at it.

No tabs on the left because the image was flipped and you are really looking at the right.

Dont bother with using the Extreme Production Solo Pro blades on the V911. I wanted to try them to see how they did since they had the canard type wing on the tip. They are not worth what they cost at all! (they were $4 or $5 something).

First to me I think it reduced my battery times although I didn't time it, I did do many flights with them on. I obviously changed the rotor head to a solo pro one as well.

But where the screw on is the big issue, they are considerably thinner than the stock solo pro and the stock V911 blades at that point and on a crash that wasn't all that bad, one broke at that point. The V911 blades have taken MANY crashes at much harder impacts and I only cracked one blade since I started flying so far (and not at the screw point anyway).

Since I have a set of stock solo pro blades by mistake I am going to use them on that heli for now while I have that rotor head on it. But I think the extreme blades were a waste of money for certain.

Mirrored Image maybe? I don't really see that as a postive change. It dilutes the market of original batteries with more proprietary stuff.
Be nice if they're efforts were put towards a newer heli.

Had they sorted it out faster I would be ok with it, people mess up and ship the wrong stuff, it happens we are human, but the bad Customer Service is what made me decide to not bother with them anymore.
I know you had a bad experience with them, and I so did I, but my last one was a positive one. They knew me and knew that I had got bad helis from them before, so they offerred to send me a $10 replacement, should there be a problem. They even contacted ME when they hadn't heard from me, just to make sure.
But, I understand Tapout's feelings. I feel that way about cenn2010 now. I think they are a joke, and wouldn't buy toilet paper from them now. lol

For me, it's now Yallstore for my helis, and Aliexpress for the misc, oddball, and non-time sensitive parts from now on. Of course this could change. hehehe
Still waiting for that CF shaft, fisheye swash, and 2 145mAh batteries. It's been in transit for 22 days now.

You might be able to manually set maximum negative trim on the 9x without setting up a model but I haven't tried that.

To bind:
Turn your 9x TX off, put a battery in the V911 then very quickly turn on the 9x while holding the bind button on the back of the radio (kind of tricky to do). Keep holding the bind button it until the V911 goes to a steady slow flash or solid. Then turn off the 9x and the V911. Now turn on the 9x like normal (do not press the bind button) then put a battery in the V911. The V911 should eventually go to a solid light and you're all ready.
appreciate the help. wow, i never saw those instructions in the manual but its probably there. LOL

i'll set up the model prior to bind.

i have 4 v911's. i'll need to setup like helio1..4? how will the 9x know which heli of these 4 to bind?

You select the model before starting the process.

The 9x radio doesnt have Model Match like Spektrum radios. It doesnt matter what model you have selected when you bind. The radio binds to the receivers, not a specific model. If you have 4 heli's and 4 models, you can use any model to fly any heli. The only reason you may want 4 models is so that you can have specific trim settings for each.

ok, and yeah, that is why i would want 4 models stored in memory. each of these v911 fly a bit different.

I didn't know it would bind no matter what model you had selected, but like you said, there's different trims for each.

I'm not used to the 9x either, but it sure is nicer than the stock Tx, that's for sure.

Bell-bar weight changed light.


Last week I bought 4 V911.
Today,I found the weight of bell-bar is changed light(short).

And I found,the RX of Ver06 is not completed.
My 2 RX of Ver06 is repaired.
So I think Ver07 will appear soon.
