long story short-
flying inverted forward flight directly towards me at about 3 feet off the ground, i locked up, lost orientation and crashed inverted at full speed, didnt have time to hit throttle hold until the crash. I found the heli fully submerged in a puddle, didnt snap a photo, no time
i pulled the heli out of the water and immediatly pulled all the electronics off of it and opened up the gyro sensor, 3G unit and esc as much as possible to let the water out.
I thought it would be a total loss.
as it turns out, the only damage is what you see in the picture below plus the blades, the heli flies like normal, despite water having gotten into every part in the heli, even the lipo had water in it.
i think i got lucky but i thought it would be nice to share, hopefully inciting a little post crash optimism
dont doubt,, they will fly again, Daniel
