Yes, I've seen all the bad reviews out there, but since I'm pretty new and still just hovering it, it's pretty cool so far, except I can't track down this head vibration problem. I suppose it is a blade balance issue (tracking looks ok now), but I rebalanced the blades as best I could (they are tiny blades!) and still get some bad head vibration at certain RPM. Above and below seems ok. No vibration with blades removed.

Anyway, I fly the mSR around my backyard with no problem, and am still learning basic flight on my Belt-CP/V2, so this one might be fun for me if I can get it to work right.

Not sure I'd recommend it at this point though. Of course I hated my mSR at first and now I love that thing.

Walkera is aware of manufacturing problems and they'll take back my heli and fix it for free. All I have to do is pay for shipping to China. I didn't crash it. It has a manufacturing problem out of the box, now I have to pay to get it fixed! I feel like I made a big mistake with this purchase. Hopefully this will all work out somehow... or maybe I'll just wake up from this bad dream. Would really love to fly this thing, but there is a limit to how much it is worth to me.

Hello Rojack

Hope you get your heli lined out> Not sure where you bought it at but Rick @ Clubheli pre flies all his heli's to make sure there are issues. He got his shipment last night and test flew all of them and didn't find any problems with them. If you need any help I'd be glad to try and assist you find your problem. I had bought a Hot rod verision from Wow before ( 4th heli in a month ) and it had a hard tail and couldn't even hover it. I called Wow and got the run around and I started swapping parts from my other 4G6 and it ended up being bad bearings on the main shaft.

Thanks

Sam Anderson

Cool to know that the new ones are looking better. Seeing more and more videos online showing them flying well. Need someone to turn down the gyro a little and do some flips and rolls on camera!

Thanks also for the offer of help!

Walkera has actually been pretty nice, e-mailing and working with me every day, and I found I can ship to them for about $12, so they'll send me a new heli. Should be free of course, but since they are in China, (and I'll soon be ordering way more than that in spare parts anyway) I can live with this. Hopefully be back flying soon!
