Default WLToys V911-1 - what a gem!

I only bought this after seeing friends wife fly one at the field in a little wind. I was amazed at the ability of the little machine.

Open box, check it over, charge up 2 of the 7 batts I have for it.

Plugged in, bound and then fly. Brilliant.

Only niggle - the very short sticks on the Tx. Couple of short lengths of bamboo added and taped secure had that sorted.

Excellent.

The V911 can be controlled with a TX using the Flysky protocol/module like the 9x.......

Yes I know ... I as going to change one of my 9x back to FlySky for this .. but the replacement 9xr crapped out.

With the stick extensions - makes it much better ... in fact I may just leave it as is.

I mounted the stock 9x antenna on the Flysky module to make it removable when I did my Spektrum mod.

The V911 is the only reason I still have a Flysky module.

My 9x has the antenna on the module anyway. I never bought the full Turnigy with wired antenna. I have factory original and Turnigy bare-bones Tx's.

Having a little trouble now with batterys ... they lose contact easily ... one in fact needs 'twisting' to work ....

If all seven of your batteries are playing up then it's more likely to be the wires or the plug attached to the heli and not the batteries themselves.

Seeing you fly your V911 got me to dig out a similar size little FP heli I got from Hobbyking a while back, they can be a lot of fun. My son and I had a game of full contact combat flying in our living room, me with the heli, him with a Hubsan micro quad Both helis lived to tell the tale, just.

Yea i agree with jet took apart one of the syma f3 batteries and soldering doesnt look to great dont know about the wl. Recently had a collision with a book case and both ends of the flybar broke so now waiting to get the money to order the spare part for it along with 2 parts for a double horse 9074. But must say it took a beating before it gave.

The socket on the Helicopter is not too good ... one pin does move. But the worst are the battery plug ends ...

My parallel charge block connects to all batterys ... but one shows near dead.

I need to sort a way to make solid the helicopter socket ... without incurring weight ... CA is not an answer as that will pass through into the socket itself ...

Hmmm had a cheap 20 dollar 3ch rc heli that did that but used a hotglue gun and problem was fixed might also try super glue near 0 weight depending on how much you use and bonds to almost anything.

Superglue is CA ... and I think the CA will creep through the pin 'hole' ...

I have thought of a dab of hot glue or Epoxy.

I can plug in a battery and when pressed - connects ... let go and it disconnects.
