Dont forget anyone who would want to see a dedicated V911 (and similar helis maybe) section, go here and say so: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1731969

I wonder how much they would weigh. Looks easy to make though. I have only had one bend some overtime but never broke one yet either.

*edit, On second thought, unless it was some sort of thin (and still light) spring steel (or other material) I wouldnt want this on mine though because unless it can flex then it will transfer any impact right into the heli frame and maybe the electronics. Rather than the current skids absorbing it somewhat. This also may cause new week spots that you need to fix once the force is directed to the frame etc... I know from all the frame work I have done on 4x4's and lowriders with hydraulics, if you re-enforce one spot you will need to do more or it will just break at the next weakest point (until you have fixed all weak spots well enough, but on a heli weight is a major factor).

I was thinking last night if I could use a brush-less motor and maybe larger battery on the V911. But I wasnt sure if it would be worth the hassle or not.

This is the "main" V911 thread, but after someone suggested it, I started a request to have our own V911 forum section so we could still have threads like this but start compiling stickies for just the V911 (and similar maybe) heli to make it easier for people new to the heli and site to find stuff. After all this thread moves fast! So go to the link in the top I posted and say so if you like the idea. Then after 50 people say so, the staff "might" hold a vote to have a section for us.

I notice the new model v911 have plugs for the landing skid and motor.

I thought this would be cool since you could just buy replacement sets and not have to solder.

But it seems like no one sells it like this?
Or am i looking in the wrong place?

Tried to do a servo transplant on my favorite corter. Epic fail!

servo transplant. That's hard imho.

The middle pin is connected to a plate that touches the plastic wiper. Very easy to melt.

Where did your attempt fail? Please elaborate to help those of you who attempts this in the future.

Not sure exactly. First attempt resulted in the servo turning fully in one direction with no response from the tx. I removed it and replaced with another servo. Second one had constant chatter from the motor ( also got hot) and any input from the tx result in the horn turning completely in the intended direction. Servo wouldn't center either.

This was my first attempt and I was doing it because the servo was sticking, seemed like a broken gear/tooth. Next time I'll leave the 3 pins at the top with the wiper. You can slide the servo case and gears right off of that piece. Then you only have to deal with the 2 wires for the servo motor.

Since it's my favorite V911 I wanted to save it, so I ordered a new board and set it aside. Only thing I've really done to it was drop in a solo pro shaft and cnc head but it flew better then any of my others.

Motor issue?

One of my (two) V911 developed a strange issue a few flights after replacing the main motor (to a bravo SX). After keeping it in high rpm for a few second the main motor kinda "snaps":
V911 Hiccup (0 min 15 sec)

Tried replacing the main gear, but it didn't help...
Thanks for helping.

If you didn't have the main gear on and just let the motor spin freely, does it still snap?

Is it safe to spin it in high rpm without load?

Have you looked at the main gear and motor pinion when running it like this?

It looks to me as the gears are going out of mesh for a split second and when they mesh together again this is what is causing that horrible twitch
