Default Help!

Does anyone have experience of the Dura Viefly V11? I've been flying one since it was given to me as a Xmas present. It is very easy to fly and good fun.However,for no apparent reason the top rotor stopped rotatating as if disconnected. Does anyone have any ideas? There is a video on line showing it literallly being kicked around and it still flew. In my case I have never even crashed her so I can't understand why it simply stopped working. Does anyone know who the UK distributers are?

PS:- Since posting the above comment I have found the fault on my V11 but I still have a problem if anyone can help me.I found the thin red wire from the offending motor had come off but I don't know where to solder it on to the circuit board.There are five likely places with the following colour wires connected :- white,black,blue,rsd,blueI fancy the red but I need to be certain Anyone any ideas?
It does seem a shame that a potentially sound product has no tech support or spares available but many to anyone who can helppossibly someone who has a V!!?

John

now you have the bug, it would be a good excuse to upgrade slightly and get a better product Blade mCX, mSR; T-rex 100; Walkera (maybe)!!!

the best way is to find a shop with that heli and do a chinese blue-print!

enjoy

Hi Matty
Thanks for the advice.I do a Honey Bee for outside but I am trying to gain some confidence with a little indoor first and,yes,the blade looks good but it does seem a shame that the V11 which flies so well isn't backed up or distributed in the UK
Best wishes

just had a thought, try [link=http://www.conrad-uk.com]Conrad's Electronics, UK[/link], maybe there is something the same but under a different name??

Hi,Matty
           No I wasn't. No luck with that last contact suggestion I'm afraid. I need to find someone who owns one of these but I believe it could be a copy of a Syma.
                       Appreciate your efforts
