Hi all, I crashed it pretty good- not as good as my next crash, I can’t seem to get the crash on tape- but the next best thing is to give you my damage reports and show you how I get it flying again with little downtime and no money when possible. Anyone attempting any of my modifications and repairs should not take only my word as teachings but do all necessary research and diligently learn as much about what I am doing before you do it yourself- that means people if you mess something up doing what I tell you and you did not spend any additional time online checking and rechecking after me then it was likely your own fault- also, if what you does gets your heli damaged or worse, then it was ultimately your decision to do what you did and I am not liable- so do your homework before you play..
Anyhow on to the crash-
Quite simple crash, I was flying back home (to me) nose-in and started giving away to much altitude, so I swung the throttle high and picked up, tried to swing it around and get oriented, at this point it was directly overhead, I had narrowly avoided getting hit by it or so it seems anyhow, and I was 15 feet up or so trying to correct and well, we all know what happens- I came down, tried to kill the throttle before the impact but it was still a good one ;)
broken blades (I never re-use a pair after a crash if they get scuffed or marred, so I consider them broken even though they are intact)
broken circular link rod
broken front servo horn
broken rear servo teeth
some minor bruising (nothing a little tuning can’t get right)
lost a grommet in the field (ARGGH!!)
So I bandaged her up, put her on the stretcher and brought her home to my ER. She WAS up again until the other day when I had an even MORE spectacular crash, I’ll be getting a rebuild video for my metal head setup on here in its entirety, so people can get the info they need without scouring 100 different forums and videos. Waiting for the parts now..see you guys in the sky.
