I know we all do something dumb but this will teach me a lesson. Tonight I was setting up my brothers Trex 450 and swash was backwards. I was in the rev section and even when I knew to be careful it happened. I had the head going in all directions but the up and down was backwards on throttle and I hit reverse. I was in my buddies garage and next to his wifes car when it shot straight up at me and my reactions was to hit it to keep away from the car.
If I was smart and not in a hurry, I would unplugged the motor. Now I'm stuck with broken finger and need surgery.

Damn man pretty gross there, sorry to see this for sure! I can understand ones natural reactions though, it's not about being smart or dumb it was just that your natural reflex don't beat yourself up about it and hope you get better soon.

ouch dude, hope the break in the finger is not too bad and you will get full use back.
i had my left pinky operated on nearly a year ago to pin the second knuckle back together, split it in 2! got almost full movement back which is alot more than i was told i would get but even now it still hurts like hell especially when it gets cold. luckily though it didnt effect my flying

Wow, hate to see this happen to anyone. You are not the only one this has happened to so don't get to down about it. Hope all is taken care and everything mends well.

When I first got my 450 I whacked my right hand pretty good, not as bad as yours, it was very sore for about a week. Now the motor is either unplugged or throttle hold is on.

I am very sorry about your accident. I have done similar things, I flayed my thumb open on a plank once. I could just about count the number of times the prop went through my thumb.

Get well.

Oh man that really sux. Very sorry to hear and see that.
Hope everything heals up quickly for ya.
Keep your head up and don't be discouraged.
There's a member at my rc club that somehow managed to get his fingers caught in a plane prop 3 different times. I guess the 3rd times the charm for him. He hasn't had it happen again and has become a very good planker pilot.

Nice gash! I had a buddy at work a bag of 150lb insulation fell on him his first instinct was to catch it well it crushed him and the fork on the forklift when threw his ribs. So dont kick yourself to hard about trying to swat it away. Now on the other hand not disconnecting your motor well not to sure what to say about that. Anyway get well soon hope it doesnt affect your flying

I am sorry for your accident. Sounds like you broke a golden rule.

Never work on a electric with the motor hooked up.

I glad it was nothing more then this. Be thankful it did not hit you in the face. Hope you heal fast and are able to start flying again soon.

I did that when I was learning.
No blades on but it did a chicken dance in the living room and wrapped my towel up in the head and broke everything.

That hand is pretty rough but I think you can buff that out

I literally never use the word literally right.

Well done on saveing the car from damage. Heck of a price to pay, but it's hard to fight instinct. I'm sure your finger will heal up in a few weeks, and you'll be good as new. I try to remove the blades any time when working on setup.
