As you can see, the 550 made it back to the hangar w/o a scratch on it. The 500...not so much!

550 looks like a perky little dog

Shame about the 500 though. I guess it gives you something to fly and something to do

It's going to take me a little while to clean the mud out of everything. The TT didn't bend at all...I can't believe it.The feathering shaft is Ok also, not sure 'bout the main shaft yet.

The question is: Are the electronics, motor, and lipo ok?

That's what usually hits my wallet the hardest.

The canopy that is in the pics has been thru at least 5 "HARD" crashes and its still holding on. The motor and electronics seem to be OK. The lipo is almost at retirement anyway, so I don't care too much about it!

She's all back together. Just gotta check the set-up and give her a test flight.

It's always a fast rebuild when you got the spare parts. It's now time to place an order and restock.
Update... Picked it up into a hover and she's got a nasty vibe. The main shaft didn't seem to be bad during the roll test but, I'll swap it out just to make sure.

The performance of the Stealth blades are perfect for my flying style. IMO, you can't beat the performance for the price. Sometimes you may get a set of the Stealth blades that may need the roots sanded down a little.
