Well last night i was flying my venom in the garage, my skills have improve 300%
i was about 7 feet off he ground going back and forth, hover and land
i got near the garage door opener,and the freq. must be very close, i lost total control of the heli.
it went into a spin and down it went.
not too bad just a tail boom to replace.

Unless someone was trying to open or close the door there should be no interference as there is nothing transmitting. More likely the heli lost your transmitter signal due to the shielding of the garage and the metal frame of the door system. That's why I keep it outdoors as 1, if I get interference I may have time to regain control and 2, I have room to run if I can't. I have a 3DXL though which is close to a 400 size machine. Note though that Venom's TX and RX are not the best so I now use a Futaba 6EX. However, I fly my co-axials inside all the time.
