Changed all my pitches for some aggressive flying today.
Went up and rolled it over once.Looked good.Pretty fast.
Did a simple back flip and then a double aileron flip and I was liking what I was seeing.
Was bringing it down so I could take a quick look and listen in a hover and a freakin wind gust hit when I was about a foot from the deck.
It was like a gorilla climbed on it.
Tapped the tail and blew out the TT gears.
I have one front gear and one rear but neither of those stripped.Just the two I don't have.The auto gear and the vertical umbrella.
Gotta wait til Tuesday to even order new ones.
I never bang the tail like that but I'm ordering two of everything.
Maybe even a whole TT rear to have assembled for just such a brain fart.

Sorry guys.Just venting
The video is all glared out.That makes it even worse.lol...
Anybody got the software to take out the glare?

Watch at YouTube

I literally never use the word literally right.

oh well stuff happens. Fix it and fly again

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

lol..I agree.
I'm blaming the cheap batteries.
Blue Lipo from Hobbypartz.
I was right at the ground where I wanted to look at it.
I pushed up and it kept coming down.

Truth be told,I dumb thumbed it.lol...I let it hit.
Dug a hole an inch deep with the tail.
Little hung over maybe
