Got my CP Hummingbird .. Cool .... Built it ... (first time setting up a 3 servo swash plate) ..... Put her in the air .... all seems ok ... Bouncing it around the living room when all of a sudden the tail rotor let go .... (It now faces the oposite way to the old hummingbird) I presume to get air flow across the motor ... all of a sudden I am 5 foot off the floor with no tail input ........ the inevitable happened and it started spinning like taz and blatted the wall ... I can confirm the main blades arent as forgiving as the old FP hummer .... AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! ..... damaged one of the main blades ...

Now having to buy new set before I can fly again

I have an old FP Hummer already and have been flying that for a while so I knew how unpredictable the little helis can be ...
