Eflight says they do not support this but it works. Set your rudder channel travel adjust to max. e.g. my DX8 goes to 150. This increases the piro rate a little more.

Thank You Bob. Will try 150% on the rudder when I get home on my DX7.

I did this from the start along with a little negative expo until it felt right.

If you mean the one that comes with the DX4E then yes the DX4E has a stunt mode switch. See my video on it.

Bob I need to replace my old walkera 4g3 I got 2 years ago. It was the first fully collective pitch heli with a 10 inch rotor diameter at that time. (so they said). It had the little piano wire skids. I loved it to tell you the truth. tail wouldnt hold worth a crap though. I'm so mixed up with what to get this Christmas for myself. it's either an mcpx, or the genius. I would really like to get in on walkeras bnf stuff with their new devo 6. all I have is a 2401 or something,(non computer) radio that came with the 4g3. and of course I have my dx6i. so what would you get? genius? or mcpx? should I spend the extra and get in on this walkera bnf revolution or stay with trusty( but customer modified) E-flight? and that wasn't meant as a slam either!

Dude... MAN UP and make a decision! I am not going to make it for you. There are WAY more capable heli's out there now that you almost cant go wrong, Honestly not picking on you but that question is the wimpiest question I get and I never answer it! Watch, learn, and if you have anyone you fly with, think about getting what they fly as you all can bond and share experiences!

Sorry to be harsh but in the market you looking at buying, a bad decision is not the end of the world and as I said, today you almost cant go wrong, 3 years ago a different discussion! Pick one and go for it!

Bob

I got the V120D02S. I aready have 3 helis with tail rotor motors so, I figured I would give this one a shot. Collective pitch tail, and flybarless.

I received a set of these yesterday, and both blades have an arc from root to tip in them. The arc isn't the same either; one blade is much worse than the other.. :/

I haven't tried the yet, as I'm pretty certain it'll cause some pretty bad vibrations, etc.

this may be worth a go...

try putting them in the freezer for a few hours. I seem to remember from my BMX days that mag wheels when buckled could be popped in the freezer and they would straighten out.

I would definitely have a go... if that doesn't work try putting them in very hot water then finding something to put on them once they are hot to squash them flat again.

heat or cold should do something to "reset" the shape.

try the cold first though...

Other thing I noticed that causes head vibrations... screws too tight. These particular helis seem to like the screws on blade grips to not have any bind at all. Mine has gone from wobbly to butter smooth with just some small screw tweaking.
