santa was very kind in getting me a:

spun it up in doors to check setup only a few minor tweaks needed. then had a little hover in the back garden. but now of to the park to stretch its legs apart from the sim and a little hover in the back garden this will be the first time in open space to have a proper play and not little hops..... already getting nervous lol.

sorry had work yesterday night, only just woke up... things went well until i got a little brave and took it a little higher... now you know when your head says its a little to breezey and your fingers go naaa its ok. well gust of wind got it, and next thing crunch... canopy took most of the impacted (just my luck one of the parts that costs the most) and sheared a little peice of plastic of the flybar control ring, now for piece of plastic thats not that big it like £12 sigh never mind going to order up the parts, and hopefully learn from my lesson of dont walk before you can crawl lol hooo was lucky on the blades still had the carbon ones on but no damage there yippeee, but not going to tempt fate and ordered up some wooden ones lol.

its a very stable heli 100 times easier that that jabo rubbish

Tugnut,

Sorry to read you have had your first crash. Have you checked that the main rotor shaft and feathering shaft (the one which connects the two blade holders) are not bent? It is very easy to bend these, especially the feathering shaft, in any sort of crash. To check the feathering shaft remove one blade and, using a suitable driver in the bolt in the end of the shaft, turn the shaft and watch the other balde holder. There should be no movement in it, if it does move the shaft has bent.

club near me has a waiting list i think, but i do have a friend thats very skilled in the arts of Heli flying (he is away at mo) its my fault in the garden was doing nice controlled hovers, got to the wide space of the park and like i said tried to walk before i could crawl. 50 quid plus lesson learned (thankfully my carbon blades lived and got woods on order now)also got a understanding wife thats tried my sim and realises that they are not easy and there are times that parts are going to get a little mashed up lol.

also i know this sounds a little odd but looking forward to doing the repair, stripped most of the rotor parts down now, and i love building things so that in mind, i am looking at this as a learning step.

next trip out once parts replaced, will go to a car park thats closed on Sundays and empty and will do some walking and short hovers there, as i know me once i get in the park i will be tempted to give more than i can offer to it lol. also will try get my m8 down there... wonder if he will let me try one of his choppers hahahahahahahaha

@ Tugnut,
Hey bro , do your self a favor and take off those carbon blades and switch to woodies....unless you want to destroy your CF blades....with your experience your gonna trash them. They look real cool till they are in pieces.....put them on when on the shelf...but to learn to fly on them is a waste of your upgrade money.....They really will just make your cyclic response a lot faster which will put you in the ground just that much faster.Save them till your ready to do 3D flying and need the faster cyclic response.

Oh yeah...when flying in wind keep your the helis nose pointed in the wind...it will help you learn how to handle wind with out the side wind forces working against you

I'm not being negative, but have you joined the BMFA and got insurance cover, and have you set the failsafe

If not I'd recommend you do both before you fly again
