I'm not sure if the two boards are 100% identical, but they do appear similar. I did not experience any problems with the rudder. It was straightforward. I could share the setting later tonight when I knock off from work.

That would be great! I have just found a thread on our DH 9116 forum where one of the members has installed a v912 pcb on the DH 9116. I'm really curious now as to what your er9x settings are.

I increased the servo throw / range for elevator and aileron for faster forward flight and more aggressive banks; and more importantly, applied a throttle curve that made sense to me. Now, the heli lifts off at about 65% throttle, hover at 60%. I need to fine tune the settings more so that left and right banked turns "feel" the same. Unlike the CP helicopters that I'm used to, the V912 they does not turn the same way. This annoys me a lot.

I may share the settings if there's demand for it.
I would like the settings thanks

I would say 500' x 500'.

The F45 transmitter permit full aile, elev,throttle,ruddr adjustment in %, not the V912 or F46. So robust, the F45 is a tank. Parts are available and cheap.
Just bought a third one there, to put a fuselage around, very satisfied. $83. with camera $104

Go to my blog, click fauconnier, to know more about the cyclic return see my older messages.
Thanks for the info. I like the idea of independent adjustment of the controls. But the cyclic return and sliding turns is a bummer. I like doing banked turns with the v911 and would like to try that on a larger heli too.

$83 is a great price for the F45. And I see the V912 came down $10 in price on Banggood yesterday so that's good too.

ouch


great calm night 22 F 7:00 , having a great time zooming around the driveway. this time i left the light pluggeed in , kind of cool, I would like to install a blinking red light in the tail.
Any way I was alittle too high on the far side of thew drive and tangled really bad into a tree branch , I actually broke one rotor blade. glad I have the extra set plus I ordered a few from bg.
so one item actuallly broke ,long overdue for me.

912 tx


I know that the 912 tx can bind with the V911 and the V939, but does it have four rates like the V939 tx?

Well I did it, I ordered the V912. Cant wait to get it, should be fun. I ordered a 808 #16 camera too so that should be interesting. Hopefully its light enough (17 grams) that the V912 can take it up for some nice flight videos. If not, then I guess that will be a good excuse to add a bigger heli to the fleet.

Nice move Jonboy. You'll like the TX with your v911 as well. The v912 is a flying lawn mower compared to the micros like the v911 cousin.

Here's my v912, along with the rest of the fleet...




I'm liking the v922 w/ FBL100 X-6S TX better than with it's own TX. Been flying micros more than anything cause it is too cold out and I freeze my nads off running the v912 outside! Also survived my first crash the other day so I can testify as to the v912 durability. It didn't hit snow/ice, thank goodness. It is like driving a bus compared to flying a CP micro. Fun but very, very different. Got 3 new 2S batteries in the mail today along with about 15 1S so I'll be flying lots more!

My V912 arrived yesterday after ordering it from Banggood on January 25th

Once powered up and bound to the transmitter, the swash plate looks level to the naked eye and both servos are close as can be to 90 degrees out of the box

I did a brief maiden hover outside and all looks good

It's been way too windy here to chance a proper flight so will give it a go on a better day

that is long awaited video as nobody seems to attach 808 to this heli so far. I'm sure it will lift 808 with no problem. if video appears smooth I would order that myself and would look for a way to power 808 from heli's battery(if light voltage is similar to 3.7V I could power it from light socket) no to use resistors powering right from battery
