Well, what can I say- explosion is the only word to descibe what happened to my poor sceadu today. If you have followed the recent posts I have made, you might note that I have been struggling with the blades going out of track/woofing for awhile. Well, I got that problem fixed and was having a blast getting to know my sceadu again!!
Flew 4 flights yesterday, and 4 today. On the 4th one, halfway through the tank, I half rolled to inverted and pushed the nose up into an outside loop. as soon as the nose went into the wind, the headspeed degraded with the application of collective and FORWARD cyclic--- then BOOOM!! It was all over. Whoof and Poof. Pieces falling all over the place and the majority of them balled up and fell 200 feet to the pavement. I did manage to shut the engine off on it's way down though- so no funky chicken. The sceadu and it's gear are a total loss. RX, GV-1,gy401/9254, 9252, 9202's all destroyed. I might be able to replace some cases/gearsets but I worry about the gyro and 9254. Also, my NIMH battery exploded and leaked acid eveywhere. Believe it or not, the canopy lived....


I will post pics on monday. It's disgusting, and I will not be flying heli's again for a long time. I'm gonna take a long awaited break from speding all this money. I basically converted 1000$$ to a bag of trash plastic. The worst part is that nobody was there to see it.

When and if I get another, IT WILL NOT be a Hirobo or Raptor.
Flutter once, shame on you. Flutter twice, Shame on me.
I learned my lesson and i'm done.

nope, I will never buy another Kyosho product in my life. I'm gonna get out of heli's for now. The past 5 mos. have been nothing but trouble for me in the heli dept. Plus, i have a divorce going through right now, because i spent too much time on heli's and not enough with her.

time to make changes

Helinerd,
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and ballcap to boot. Wish you the best in anything you want to do. Just hope you'll reconsider on the heli's and come back soon and join us again, but for the time-being, do whatcha' gotta' do, dude.

Hang in there, Helinerd.

Once you get past this slump, things will get better for you. We've all had low points like you're having.

Keep in touch. We'll look for your posts in the near future.

Flying helis since gyros had springs.
