The unavoidable climb while moving forward is a disaster as well as just not being able to 'fixed spot hover' .
In defense of the s301 though , it is hella fun and has been fairly reliable and indestructible given the abuse I've put it through.
Any recomedations appreciated, I'd like to keep within a budget of under $150...
Again , need about 26" , 2.4 ghz (just not 27mhz) ,3 or 4 channel, still easy to fly
, one that does exceedingly well at FIXED POINT HOVER.
riverstrat: I have the syma s301g , getting ready for an upgrade to 2.4ghz and need one about 20% + - larger.
I do like the coax bladed copters but not dead set on that feature.
Problem with mine: I mainly need a super stable hover and a slightly better payload capacity.
Mine will stay in one spot fairly well (indoors) but will not maintain elevation, there is not sweet spot on the main rotor rpm to get it to maintain.
Also when moving forward it wants to also increase main rotor and climb ...cont...
Daimler Bermudo: I dont like when they say they are knd of cccrrraaappp
sara maharjan: I read most of the feedback however I think that it's a great youtube video. My sibling just wishes to get excellent with chicks. He came to understand a freak load from a web page called Master Attraction. (Google it.) The help about seducing women through clubs in those emails via that website helped get got him his first freaks in around 4 long yrs. I got annoyed though due to the fact I heard them all. Horrible.
Zinchuriki uzzumaki: You will know that irritating occasion when your brother (who's been a loser for a lifetime, by the way) gets an incredible girl to fall for him in 3 weeks?! crap, that occurred. I know I should be happy nevertheless I wish it was me. He revealed that he learned from the Cupid Love System (Search for it in Google). I would like to disappear inside a cave instantly.
Igor Lima: Don´t you see a button in the remote control. If you are inexperiente in this subject ask someone to help you . Just don´t break the helicopter!
:)Portugal , I sell 90 cm helicopters for 85 dollars .Bye
ghouse khasim: your voice is like Microsoft sam computer
Sabin Bhandari: Life sucks. My buddy has started seeing a ten because 8 weeks ago he registered to an internet site called Master Attraction (Google it if you desire to learn more.) I'm jealous because I want to fall in love as well. I'm gonna take a peek at this Jake Ayres man's emails to find out if it might help a person like me. Bizarre thing is, he previously had Zero luck with women. How can you change that rapidly? His lady's a freaking model!
DonCarlo4Broadway: Will a 3S 850mah work?
I just bought this helicopter a few days ago. It flies amazing out of the box. The only problem that I had with mine, is that one of the trim-buttons did not work, I wasn't able to trim the side 2 side movement of the helicopter and it flew just a little bit to the right. I am going to return this helicopter tomorrow, and see if I can get one with a working transmitter. But this helicopter is alot of fun to fly, even with a broken transmitter :D
David Obeid: Not very good advising to add weight on the nose for faster flight. A heli must be balanced at the main rotor head, adding weight at the front would make it track all over the place. It will affect your swash plate. If you want a more more heavy model at least "shift " weight, do not add. Move the battery forward or other components. It can be done regardless what heli.
TheMrTape: I just realized from another video that the canopy was damaged by the balance bar, it also made a little bump in the tail boom. Great design!
TheMrTape: The canopy isn't sturdy at all. Mine broke on first crash(due to range loss), I bought it because I thought the canopy was tough; it's not.
joseico90: apparently the trim settings CAN be saved using the SUBTRIM function on the menu. :)
Htownrule: I think its too big and bulky it doesn't fly as good as the 9116
Will G: Now I saw the 9117, new model. even better
Will G: check the 9117, Newest model. very nice
Htownrule: @will G yea its better than 9100
7norton4: I bought a 9104 a while back & it was barely flyable without some modifications. From the sound of it this is better.
Will G: Thats a usefull review, thnx. The DH 9100 is 20euro cheaper. Is the 9116 worth the extra 20? (with the 9117 remote)
Theres also a j perkins twister 400 sport, 99% the same as DH 9100. But cost 2,5 times as much. Same with the DH9053 and the Revell Big one. Same copter, double price
Lehmann Peters: All of the double horse helicopters are, in the end just tots, pieces of junk. The tail motors burn -out all the time, the electronics fail. Problem after problem. If you want to get involved in rc helicopters, avoid these toys and get a hobby grade helicopter like a Blade.
turboninjastix: Jeepers, people.. I got my 9116 for my first heli because I wanted a 4 channel with lights. It's a cheap heli from China so expect as much ! Parts are dirt cheap online and the design is fairly simple but if you're looking for more, expect to pay a couple hundred bucks. I got mine for about $55, but have replaced the blades, the canopy, and the tail section. Good for learning controls and orientation, but not real good in the wind.
hammydude12345: Sorry, I haven't tested its lifting capacity.
kkeaglesfan7: Do you know about how much weight this thing can lift?
Onimuto Xeno: that looks like a lithium iron phosphate batt or knowen as LiFe.
Pero Yousry: which better .. !!
Double Horse 9116
Double Horse 9104
Double Horse 9100
any help .. ??
ZaibateI: Hello there, would some1 be nice and suggest me a good 4ch heli ?
ulujm: With all of yours videos how many copter do you have?
Mr. YouTube: Don't get this get the v912
MasterPlumberTDS: My 9116 has started spinning. I try to correct it usig the controls but will not stop spinning. Any answers ?
Power Dyne: Just ordered a 9116 myself. I do plan on making a pad for the tail tube because I have seen that the balance bar can strike the tail tube causing it to dent. This typically only happens in crashes or aggressive maneuvering. However, better safe than sorry. It can also strike the canopy, and possibly damage the receiver.
TheDrakey1973: I've ordered one due to this and other videos on here, thanks for taking the time to post these, make choosing the right heli so much easier
danielc0307: Awesome review! THANK YOU!
Rodney Deangelo: im going to order the 900mah battery should i upgrade anything else on it to make it a better helicopter?
hammydude12345: yes, if the battery is weak it won't fly
Rodney Deangelo: ????? if the battery went bad would they make it hard to left it off the ground...bec
myspare2006: Need help... Was flying well until I started playing around with the transmitter menu adjustments. Now I can get the rudder to work ( turning left or right). Can you reset the saved info to the original setting?
Tucker Jadczak: Fly the damn thing...
hammydude12345: it is defective, i think you should return it.
Heave Ho: i need help, right out the box it keeps spinning in like crazy.
hammydude12345: Haven't had problems with the transmitter, I don't know if the Spetrum transmitter will bind with the 9116 receiver.
N2RIT: Have you had any problem with the transmitter ? The throttle control on the transmitter I have does not work correctly I have to move it back and forth in order to get the throttle working. I plan on getting a better transmitter for other Heli later, but wonder if i can change the receiver in the 9116 to work with a Spectrum DX6i transmitter ?
hammydude12345: Good, glad to hear!
Daniel Corbett: I ended up using a piece of copper wire cut and weighed to 4 grams . worked great, thanks
hammydude12345: i used a piece of solder, but any weight will work if your helicopter flies to the side.
Daniel Corbett: Hey Hammydude, Iwas wondering what you used for the counter weight on the skid to level out the heli?
hammydude12345: I like the s033g as the best large coaxial. The 9104 is my favorite large fixed pitch and 9116 is my choice for a 4 channel fixed pitch.
kyle Hill: What's all the double horse copters have you had? Which is the best?
hammydude12345: It is a cheap, but fun, fixed pitch helicopter. but i wouldn't recommend it unless you have flown a coaxial heli.
Julysbrown: should i buy a 9116? im not sure if i should.
