Damn That sucks!!! but thanks for the post. make me rethink the whole hovering at eye level deal.
a few weeks ago i flew 3 bats and did my usual post flight inspections. There i noticed that the blade and grips had more movement than normal. I removed the blades thinking i had a busted o-ring and found that one screw from the feathering shaft was VERY loose!! I think one more flight and it would have been over!!!
I never put loctight because of all the dissy's and assy's. Needless to say those days are in the past!!!!
GLAD no-one hurt hurt in your story.
