that is a very good fix. popped end caps were the number one failure mode for me. most of mine didnt even get a chance to wear out brushes. then i did something similar: push the prop ALL the way down on the shaft and no more popped caps.

Enjoy, these small quads are great. I almost never fly my bigger ones anymore. Welcome.

I bought 2x U816s thinking I could give them to my nephews both 10 and 12 yrs old. They both fly great once trimmed but the throttle stick feels a little vague at times. I have only flown CP helis so it took about 4-5 flights to get use to how they fly. They are pretty responsive even on low throws. I crashed both a couple of times flying in the living room but have yet to break or loose anything...no blades coming off or anything. With all that said, I might have to reconsider giving them to my nephews.

They're certainy toys for all of us, but I would say maybe not for younger children as they move extremely quickly and those blades although small and not too harmful, definitely spin at a fast enough rate they could hurt someone if hit like somewhere in the face.

My V939 smashed into my mouth at near full throttle (note to self: do not dream) and it was painful. Good thing my lips were intact, no cuts or bruises, just pure throbbing pain for 5 minutes.

I'm pretty sure V939 does not have mode 4, other one maybe. I had my first 4ch co-ax on mode 4. It tis easy to change flying habit to mode2. Most RC quads are mode 2 here in USA, euros maybe mode 1 ??

As I understand it...just provide a remote running in Mode 4 and can bind with the quad and it will behave appropriately.

The Turnigy 9x running er9x has Mode 1, 2, 3, 4. And can bind with the v929, v939, v949

I don't know for sure what is the stick arrangement for mode 4 (throttle and rudder left or right) but the MJX X100 mini quad Transmitter can be arranged for whatever mode or stick combination you wish. It has a propietary (& patented?) lever system for changing throttle stick to left and right, and you only have to press a button to switch sides for the rudder and aileron. I fly mode 2 but with this Tx my friends that fly mode 1 (or even if any of them fly mode 3 or 4 for shure) can have a go in my X100 . I find this Tx itself very nice, it has metal thumb sticks and ratchet on both sticks when assigned for throttle function.

Regards.

If mode 4 is Throttle and Aileron on left stick, Rudder and Elevator on right stick - So, the Mini Pet has this option.
It ha a switch for changing from Mode 2 to Mode 4.

P.S. The text labels of this switch are wrong - Mode 2 is really Mode 4, an vice versa. But both modes are supported.

imo mode 4 rulz. 1, 2, 3 = fail. mainly because i hate having to learn how to fly all over again going from 3ch to 4ch (and back). quads, planes, helis, boats, cars.... all the same now.

in fact ive gone to considerable effort converting all my non programmable radios for mode 4.
