Another post for you guys.

My Mini CP is back up and flying after a servo quit on me. I retrofitted a hobbyking HK-5320. Not exactly a "bolt in" deal....first you need to switch the power and signal wire on the servo plug (easy). Then you need to open the servo up, and switch the 2 motor wires, AND 2 wires on a circuit board. This involves, by far, the most precise soldering I have ever done. These things are TINY!

To top it all off, the servos are smaller than stock, so I had to use a little hot glue to create a spacer of sorts.

I fried one servo by swapping the wrong two wires I think. Not really sure if it's fried, but It certainly doesn't work right now. But at $4 each, I feel like the extra work is certainly worth it rather than paying $11+slow boat shipping to get a real walkera servo.

I've got a few flights on it now, and it works great!

Only a few, but doing a high speed sliding turn in the living room when the heater kicked on made her kiss the wall hard enough to break the frame, got a new one on the slow boat for 2.50 shipped . Fun little quad to chase the cat around the house with, but a feather on it and she chased it until it decided to chase her

I got the lady bird spektrum quad, all I had a TX for, still just a 4 channel so it is stuck in 3d mode, fun as long as you have some CP heli experience not too bad, just twitchy.
