    I had a crash when I went from inverted to upright. The belt slipped and it crashed to the ground with no power. The belt is very loose, I had this happen before. The belt drive mechanism needs to be improved.

      I replaced the feathering shaft in my 450. I didn't find a thrust bearing. Does it have thrust bearings?

        I have seen these advertised as V2 450 and V2 450L. Is there a difference? What does the "L" stand for?

          Where can I get information on if/how to fit a scale body to my FW450. I looked at YouTube videos for this 'copter but didn't see anything of that nature.

            If the compass wasn't calibrated it wouldn't hold position and would likely start circling and crash. I know because my Hubsan Zino drone compass lost it's calibration and the drone circled out of control and flew away into the next neighborhood where it was destroyed when it hit a tree and fell into someone's back yard.

              Magnetic north varies slightly by location, depending on where the 'copter compass was calibrated before you got it will determine how accurately it will hold it's position and/or RTH. Ideally if you are flying x number of miles away from the location where the compass was previously calibrated you should re-calibrate the compass. The value of 'x' may be unknown by you or you may not be able to accurately ascertain if it's compatible with your location so ROT when in doubt always calibrate a new drone/heli/compass to your home location before attempting to fly with the GPS turned on.

                Thanks for the info, however, it's been a while now and Motion (or any other trust worthy sellers) never got any stock since I was first interested in this. I don't trust the sellers that has these in the Asian markets. Now, with some of the "iffy" reports, I've moved on and this is off the table.

                  They just got the FW450 back in stock a week ago. I ordered one and got it yesterday!

                    There are two TIMERS on the transmitter display panel. How do they work?

                      It is VERY HARD to find details on setup of the displays for the RX and TX on the transmitter. They don't read properly.😡 Is there a "technical" representative to correspond with or is this the best avenue to find information?

                        There are some details on the RX and TX displays in the FS-i6S User Manual for the transmitter. Not much technical info available on this forum.

                          Hello - I have read that if I fly the FW450 at another location than the last flight that I should re-calibrate the compass. If I have green light in the H1 am I good or must I recalibrate ?
                          TIA - Alan
