This is my first ever crash since I started flying helis almost a year ago.

Today I was flying my avro and I got distracted because of a small aircraft flying over the flying area and my avro slammed the ground side (not the muffler side) in on my UK landing skid. The uk landing skid took a lot of beating and snapped in two.

one side of the tail case is damaged as the raised section is damaged.

Thank god, no damage to engine, muffler, frames or any electronics.

one side of the canopy post is broken and the inside of the canopy where it mounts on the post is cracked.

Just 2 days ago I purchased a used avro for parts and thats coming.

Damage-review no 1:
boom, TT, The black gear, one TT gear in case, landing skid, flybar, flybar cage bearings, feathering shaft, one set of thrust washers, tail fin is cracked, front canopy standoff-one, .....so far known damage.

MORE DAMAGE---no 2 :

both fan shroud, fan-one blade is broken--the header tank pushed the shroud in-causing damage.

more damage---no 3

flybar control arm, tail shaft

Pictures coming soon.

Thats too bad but it sounds like the Avro held up pretty good. Hope you get the canopy back to the way ya had it...very sharp! On the positive note, spares should be there Friday!!!

Yes it did and I thank the quick UK landing skid for that.

I am still going to order the parts from blitz and keep them handy for my next crash...hehe

You said that you had a few extra parts like flybar and etc, can you please send them to me. I received the ups invoice via email and so you wont get the invoice now.

Yes, I think my damage is under $250, it could have been worst. If you need any help with rebuild, let me know and I can assist you.

I just took the fan shroud out and I will need both shrouds and a fan-fan lost one fin.
