And my heli. I believe the battery decided to die on me in flight. I was 4 minutes in and had looped and came out of the loop just fine when the tail just started spinning. I held it while it did piros. Finally i realized it was not going to recover because of the low headspeed. Not exactly sure what happened but the battery was still at 11.6 when i checked it. The only part i dont have is the pitch link. Ill have to make a run to Rons heliproz. They are awesome people.

Yeah. When it was coming down piroing, i just kinda let it fall once it got about 2 or 3 feet. Nothing else i could do. Damage doesnt appear too bad.

Im getting rid of the battery. I tend to keep these things too long. Theres a ton of flights on the 2 aligns and 1 flightpower.

If you have throttle hold programed in that will help.It will stop the motor which will stop the tail from spinning.I have it programed in but always for get to hit it

I dont think the battery died all the way cause i could still move the servos. Anyways, Its back together again.

Feathering shaft
main shaft
1 link (metal screw part)
Blades (didnt like them anyway)
Landing gear( but i repaired them with a sheet of brass) free
flybar
Canopy mounting pins

It hovers beautifully. Cant wait for the wind to die down again. The thing is i just grabbed the Trex and went to flying that one a couiple of seconds later. Didnt miss a beat. I didnt get the scared to fly thing. The Rex is not as agile so i had to get the MT going again quick.

I was on the warm up flight when all this went down. I was going to use the second battery to practice nose in inverted. Oh well. I wont do that with the Rex until i can get it to become more agile.(new motor and esc)

Thanks Fender for all the help and our baby is ready to go again.
