Thread: V912 Questions

    V912 Questions

    Hi I just got my V912 over the weekend and I am having a blast with it, and it is very strong I let my wife fly it and three times now she has got it in a tree and fell damn far and still runs like a champ only a few paint scrapes on the canopy. Anyway my questions are:

    How long has your V912 motor lasted I have read that they only last around 15 flights. If that is true what is a perfect replacement motor for this.

    I am looking for some rubber landing skid dampers does anyone have any on theirs and if so what size and where did you find yours
    .


    Please write back I love this helicopter and if there is any helicopter like this that you would rather prefer let me know.

    My helicopter just arrived today, and the (tail rotor) motor has burnt out already, and I really don't know why. Even before it burnt out, it wouldn't fly properly. I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with it, but I'm not sure what.

    Hi i have had my v912 a little over 3 mounths with no sign of the motor
    going, i did get a additional battery.
    what i'm having trouble with is getting it to trim.
    it want to lean left on takeoff and the trim adjustments dont do much .

    It is normal for most (all?) FP helis to want to slide to the left on take-off. That is caused by the ground effect. Watch videos and most pilots don't even try to compensate - they just boost up above ground effect quickly. I like to apply right aerilon for a brief time during take-off to avoid the side slide.

    You may also notice a slight tilt to the right while hovering above ground effect. Again, normal. There is an explanation at http://www.helicopterpage.com/html/forces.html.

    These effects will reverse right or left depending on the direction of the main rotor spin.
