Well i will remember this mothers day for all the wrong reasons.
One of My old reliable Concept 30's I have been flying since 1991 met an unfortunate fate today at 11:00 am. She was flying great as usual and there was a little more of a wind than i would of rather had' but nothing I have not flown in before. then out of the blue in the middle of a wide circleing turn I realized she was starting to come tail round without any encouragement from Me. I lost tail rotor control and have not yet done the ottopsy so do not know why. damage's i can see- (A)main mast bent. (B)feathering shafts both bent. (C)landing gear broken.(D)flybar now ressembles a horse shoe with paddles.(E)main rotor blades dented. if i was'nt concerned about safety i could probably reuse?NOT.(F)and of course assorted linkage rods bent. SO FAR.
I am finnally thinking GOOD BYE OLD FRIEND. or maybe not. we'll see how i feel tomorow? BUMBED diesel rotor.

Sorry to hear it dude, but you know the old story- There are 2 kinds of model helis. Ones that have crashed, and ones that are GOING to crash. I learned on a Concept 30, and it served me well. With Raptors being so inexpensive, thats the way Id go. I found Concept parts were way too expensive. As Im sure you know, there are issues with the head too. Ya just hate to give it up, dont ya??
Happy landings!
