I started trouble shooting about half way thru the back flip. At the top of the flip my brain calculated and formed the words "That's gonna hurt"

7/30th of a second prior to flipping it away, the conrod came apart right behind the wrist pin, probably because I was consistently running ever so slightly lean. Poor motor has had a long hard life, and it did get me thru the AMA Class 1 contest

So, with out further rambling,

Here are links to the HD versions, starting with the short version:

Cool video but sorry about the heli. That is a total bummer when that happens. At least you made 3/4 of a back flip with no power, that is not a common feat.

I am a Heli addict!!!

From the looks of the impact i was expecting total destruction. Overall the damage to the heli looks pretty minor. The engine is a different story.

The damage isn't so bad, $97 worth of parts + whatever it takes to get the motor going.

YS would probably warrenty it, but I KNOW I killed it and its not a manufacturing fault. Consequently I won't send it back for warranty repair. Instead I'll stuff my YS-80 in it for a bit while I order up a new piston / wrist pin / conrod to get the 91 up and running again.

I am thinking about moding the piston by adding a second oil passege to each side of the wrist pin, and maybe enlarging the oil passage on the conrod. Don't know yet...

Bottom line, I was having fun, and I think that's all that really counts!

Bummer, at least your main blades survived. I'm glad the part count was at least minimal, that would have been a different story if it were 2 or 3 times higher in the air.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
