Hello all, new to micro helis but not new to Helis.
Purchased Hummingbird FP kit from HeliHobby. They did not give instructions for the additional parts they supplied.
Questions:
Came with Lithium upgrade. Battery is rectangular pack, what is a good mod to the existing battery holder to mount it?
Came with mixerboard CNE052 which pins go to the main rotor motor and which pins go to tail motor?
Servos are blue bird servos (BMS-306) they are about a mm too big to fit in the cradle of where the servos are to go. What mod? Cut one of the end tabs on heli?
Came with 2 extra ball bearings as an upgrade HH137 where do these go?
Battery is redish pink and light blue wires is the redish pink positive lead?

Thanks in advance

Just curious which lithium battery did they give you? 2 cell or 3 cell?

You can find a connection diagram at Century's website.

Here's one that has the CNE0052 mixer.

I purchased it with the 2 cell pack. I think I may get a higher voltage battery.
I ended up searching around on other sites and found all of my answers.
The package came with a Hobbico quick field charger. I charged the Lithium Ion 2 cell pack at about 400mA for the first charge.
I forgot to get a crystal for the reciever so I used a full sized reciver I already had.
Not sure if its the lack of voltage of the pack or the weight of the reciever but after a minutes or two of hovering, it would barely get off the ground and just rest on the ground effects.
Seeing as they sell the standard kits with 8.4V packs, I think this 2 cell pack may not be enough voltage. I'll finish off this pack and recharge it and try again.
It flies though
These are definitly not beginner helis but looks like it will be fun.
Its cold and windy today and I'm in my basement flying
