So, I managed to crash my Srimok a month or so ago. Although the Srimok made me feel like a much better pilot it didn't solve the "dumb thumbs" effect I experienced that day! I suppose I should be happy I am still in charge of my models (a thrill that is radidly disappearing from my regular job...). Anywhooo, when I crashed I snapped the tailboom and the tail blade pitch pushrod plastic ball link at the tail control arm linkage ball. So after repairs I made a dozen flights without incident when the M3x20 socket screw holding the tail rotor control arm snapped at the tail gear case cap leaving me with an auto into the tall grass and some crazy tail gyrations until the tail rotor stopped and the heli weathervaned. The tall grass snapped a tail blade and the spindle bent slightly but pretty good save all in all. Thank god I was pulling out of a dive into level upright flight when it went, could have been ugly!

So if you damage your tail linkage make sure to check/replace the M3x20 bolt holding the linkage to the tail case.

Oh thanks Alan! That is bad logic... I'm a dirt bike guy at heart, I don't worry about scratching my stuff, I worry about getting hurt, in this case financially!
