This is the president of our club here in Omaha flying a Trex 450 when the tail blades blew off. Fast forward to 1:55.

I could never be that lucky. Today, I went to fly my 250. Install the first pack, plug it, begin to spool up. Full throttle, I go to lift off into a fwd flip. Boom strike and it flips into the ground and pieces go flying. Almost look like a skeet shoot, pull! Flight lasted less than 3 seconds.

It was awesome, wish I had a camera!

Like my man said, great save, hope he played the lottery that day!

S76, you're taking that way to well, but that's a good thing, easier to accept and move on!

thx, I had enough spares to fix put humpty back together again. the only thing I didn't see upon ntsb investigation was a bent m/r hub. will have to pick one up.

it happened so fast it was actually comical. both my buddy wayne and I looked at eachother and said "damn, wish I had a camera, that was awesome!"
