My buddy and I just purchased our first two Blade 130's. Had them shipped to his office for spousal reasons, lol. He set them both up on his DX-7. Fired the first one up for the test flight and it was fine. Fired #2 up and the entire tail section flew off. He was not able to find it outside of his office. Has anyone else had anything like this happen? And yes I'm going to locktite everything when I pick mine up.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

First flight I had the tail output shaft retainer fly off because they did not tighten it. May have been worse but I saw something fly off of it so I shut it down. Best run through all the screws and make sure they are snug. I tend to do this between flights to be safe.

for spousal reasons
LOL.. That's funny..

I only had a similar issue, years ago with my brand new Rex 700N. I forgot to check all the parts for loctite. Since then, and a couple of hundred dollars in repairs, I make it a habit of checking newly purchased heli's for the use of loctite.. It’s good practice to check your existing ones as well for loosened parts.
