What else should I order from Tmart..? V911 related. Am I better off custom fitting better/different batteries later, or are the stock batteries adequate?
Second. Iv got a older JR XP8103 DT PCM Can I use it for any of the latest micro Helis with a spektrum rf 2.4 module installed?
TBH I would order them from BG. I got one from t-mart yesterday and was glad that only the box was crushed and not the heli itself. OK with BG you don't get the original packaging but, unless you want to give it as a present, who cares? BG pack their stuff so that it survives the journey... 'nuff said.
I find the stock (esp old-style 150mah) batteries sufficient for my needs. I know that some people change the skids and add connectors to use blade batteries. Maybe when my stock ones start to give up the ghost I'll think about it myself, but in the meantime I don't feel the need.
The only spare parts I would think about getting are skids, flybars and bnf's. The skids, cos you never know, and the flybars cos you can get the msr paddles from miracle mart and try a bit of modding (apart from the fact that I busted a flybar last week, but you could possibly go for months without breaking one
) Let's face it, you can get 4 of them for about 2-3 Euro, and it's crap having a heli you can't fly cos the flybar's busted and you were too mean to get spares
Edit: ... and don't forget the cf main shaft/fisheye swash kits if you're not buying white & yellow V(Y?)911s
