WLToys V949 Binding?


How do you bind the transmitter and the copter? The instruction manual doesn't say. My lights flash and the transmitter turns on, but doesn't control the copter.

Thanks,

Rick

Plug in the quad first and put it on a flat surface. It will blink.
Then turn on your TX and wait until the red blinking led on the heli turns to fixed light. You're done.

The effect is sadly temporary

Has anyone tried binding the WLToys transmitter to a regular FlySky receiver?

You could put servos on all the channels, and then see what if anything is really happening with the different transmitter buttons. This could help us diagnose what is needed to get it all working with the 9X transmitter.

I'll try it when my v939 gets here, but that could be weeks away. (My v929 was BNF, so I have no stock transmitter to test with)

antennahead: I think we got your v949. It's blue. And only one arrived. Our order suppose to have 3 v949 and 6 extra lipo.

----------

After two months wait. Heli Pad's and my order arrived.
Except, instead of three v949. We only got one.
Label says 3 though.


Only one battery arrived. It's charged was 4.0v. Wierd. Usually these lipo are at storage charge of 3.8v. We were promised two additional Tiger LiPo each, for the long, long, long wait.


Then, to top it all off...one of the rotor was damage. And that same motor doesn't appear to fly very well either when a new rotor is put on.


It's a Rev02 board. I wonder if the sticker "A" over the chip denotes it's flashed with the v949 firmware.

Anyways, this is not a rant post only. More of a joking response to antennahead above. More relevant to the topic...my question.
Those of you with v929 Rev02 board with 8plug. Do you have a different letter sticker?



Anyways, so disappointed thus far. We don't know where the other two v949 are. Hopefully, we don't get shafted and it arrives tomorrow. But it's wierd that the label say 3 v949...but the package only has one inside. Have you guys who purchased from Bang Good have any idea how this could be? Can they split the order despite the way it's labeled?

Hopefully Aaron can make this right.

I hope they arrive seperately, I would think that if BG taped all of the boxes together the dimensional weight for shipping would be dramaticly more. Me and pinky here are pullin for you!!!!!!

I don't have mine yet, but in Fire Singapore's picture on page 1 you can clearly see the "A" sticker on the chip. Hope this helps.

FryeSG sounds like "frying" my country. I know it's hot over here, but not that hot.

Sorry, I meant to say those of you with v929 Rev02 8plug. I want to know what label is on the v929 board.

I finally tried out the 8 plug replacement board I had ordered from Banggood, the one I posted a pic of in the earlier posts, and the TX left top button does what it did before, toggles on/off LED's or whatever you plug into there. My v929 board was acting really funny, seemed like one of the motor was going bad, kept dragging to that corner. Swapped the motors and it still dragged to that one side. As I was taking the 2 pin jst-xh male out the whole plug comes right off, one pin was still on the board the other broken off in the plug.

My 949 arrived with 4 free extra tiger batteries, and the same bent blade.

How did you score 4x free batteries?

Another friend of mine got his V949 with a bent rotor!!! Banggood really messed up their packaging this time.

Free 4 x Tiger batteries!?! Where did you buy it?

Same as Daryoon, the 1 x battery came fully charged.
