Heli KV thanks a million
Thankyou for your information and links for this little maddening machine.
It could very well be bad dampners and I did try shimming it also with small washers with no luck.
I will get online with clubheli tonight and order up some of the parts. I have spent too much money on the heli and fancy Walkera transmitter to give up without trying a few more cheap parts.
Wish me luck and I will report back,,,thanks again

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

I wish you luck!

I forgot to say that I also use these fins:

They are lighter then stock ones, so helps in balance. I even cut tail fin as much as possible to make it lighter and put some rubber on rare part of skids to keep tail out of the ground. Heli is tilted forward, like Outrage G5, standing on the ground.

Once again: Good luck. For sure this heli is not monster, but flies best of all nanos in my opinion.

I'm delighted with my now upgraded 4#3 for indoors.

It's perfect.
I agree these helis are perfect for indoors

I have a 4#3B and an MSR, the MSR was way better (for me at least) to get going. I had to do nothing to it. Batteries are also dirt cheap. My 4#3B ate motors for breakfast. Even with a heat sink. I'm sure if I ever sent it to HeliKV, he'd be able to turn it into either an Indy Race car or a Military Stealth vehicle.

The stock 4#3B had some issues. The motors being the worst of it. That even went back to the original 4#3. Mine ate motors for lunch. I actually found a place that sold them in bundles of 10 !

For a while, I got into re-working the motors, and putting in a different commutator, and carbon brushes. Those actually lasted, once you got the hang of building them, but it was tricky. I had it "close", but never quite got there.

That's part of the reason I finally shelved mine. It has its place of honor, never to fly again (note: mine is a heavily modified 4#3 v1).

There is now a double brushless version from Walkera that solves that issue. I believe there is even a conversion kit for it (If memory serves, Wow hobbies has the kit).

For what it's worth now, Wow hobbies also has a hot-rod version of the CB100, and THAT is a sweet little heli! I love mine!
At some point, I'll put my 4#3B head on it, but for today, I absolutely love it. Lottsa batteries, and life is good.

I do not fly 4#3B anymore after 4G6 and after I installed Xtreme blades - very heavy. Sure stable, but imagine how fast it will eat motors. Yeah, mine ate motors a lot. One time I wanted to convert it to brushless, but 4G6 was an obstacle.

What puts me off upgrading my 4#3 helis to brushless is the extra weight. I bought the Walkera brushless main motor upgrade kit when it first became available. Took one look at the motor and esc and stuck them straight into my 4G3 and have never used the RX.

4#3Q blades are a good upgrade. They are slightly wider than the stock blades, provide more lift, so lower the headspeed which gives the motor an easier time. I now get well over 100 flights per motor, helped along by a squirt of WD40 now and again.

I bought the AeoRC brushless upgrade a while ago as the motor and esc/converter together only weigh 1g more than the stock brushed motor.
I'll fit it when the current brushed motor dies, but it refuses to do so

I've done the 4#3 (original) and 4#3B thing. Never tried a CB(whatever). The mSR is exactly what I want from an indoor heli - low maintenance and can take a beating (like a trailer park woman - trust me, I know).

I've kind of glanced in the direction of the 120 SR, but...nah.

Watch at YouTube

A soul in tension is learning to fly

Yeah Shiz, I could have saved a fortune going with a BNF mSR, but I wanted the versatility of the CB100.
They're basically the same thing, but the CB100 has some options that I wanted.

I believe the same exists for the CB180, and 120 SR
Same 45* flybar configuration, just a matter of eFlight vs Walkera.

Actually, my FrankenHeli is about the same as a 120 SR, I just built mine LONG before they came out with it.

Hmm.. I wonder if I can adapt any of those head parts . . . heh heh.
