Sunday looked like a really good day for flying!!, sky was clean, 86 F, no wind at all, my friends and me were having a great time, 6 raptors and 2 tigers, one that belongs to me and the other a friend, My friend went for his 3rd tank, was making a big loop (outstanding by the way), and suddenly he freaked out and lost control of it, it came down like a tomahawk!! hit the pavement on the runway by the nose, and BOOOOM!!! everything exploded!!
There were 2 parts that made it all the head I mean all the head but the main blades and flybar, and all the tail rotor, everything else is JUNK!! engine(OS 50SXH Hyper dead!!, servos all 9252 dead!!, receiver JR 952 dead!!, battery JR 2200 dead!! , gyro GY601 with 9251 dead!! (this servo survived).
It was a carnage!!

I was checking today the cost for making another tiger with what survided, and it goes to 317.56 WOW!!

He is going to buy a new kit, and keep the spares for later repairs!

Seems that no matter how good this heli is(or any other heli), it can´t survive a fall like this!!

And John here you have the first main frame that breaks in a lot of pieces, obviously the crash was HUGE!!

Concrete 1, Tiger 0

Yeah, I believe this, sorry to hear of this my friend.

Finally, as for the sevos, often they appear dead but it's the gears only that are broken - less than 10 bucks each to repair.

Nop, servos were broken, It was pretty amazing, but what is very good of it, is that the head and the tail rotor were perfect after the crash, and these are the most expensive parts on it so, this heli is really good!!
