Well...I was hovering nose in after finishing a nice round of flips and loops and for some reason I pushed the stick the wrong way.....and down she went....I've been hovering nose in for a while so I guess I just had a brain cramp...Damage not too bad but I did toast an engine, blades, and main gear......after I crashed I was still in idle up (forgot to reset back to normal in my haste to get to my chopper) so even though the stick was down it was still reving full throttle...I guess that's how it toasted my main gear....How I didn't burn up the clutch I'll never know....This gives me an excuse to go ahead and upgrade to a fifty since my engine was reving at 80,000 rpms...and causing the piston to come apart...As I was taking the helicopter apart to check out the damage I noticed the clutch assembly and shaft had just a small amount of side by side play...Is this normal or am I paranoid? Is Heliproz the best place to buy the parts and should I go ahead and get the O.S. 50 or stick with the TT50???? Just as a side note my boom is still straight as an arrow....Weird....Any suggestions....???
