This is my video and I wanted to comment on a few things but it looks like the original topic was closed because of the ridiculous fight that started about batteries and nitro vs. electric. Anyway yes this is a velocity n2 with only about 15 flights on it, the motor just started to come to life and the crash was not from a broken gear, this is the new gear train and IMO the main gear is unbelievably strong. There was not a single tooth broken from main gear and auto gear. If we had to guess we would say a link failed on the tail control rod. The reason it could not be shut off was because the battery ejected upon impact so there was no power going to the heli. For those of you that have never witnessed a 50 size or up dancing on the ground like this... believe me you do not want to go anywhere near this thing. It was moving around like it was possessed. I dont think the video showed it very well but it was hoping off the ground sometimes by 10 inches or more. I actually did continue to film but my phone ran out of memory right where the video ended. We finally got the thing to shut off about 20 seconds later with him pinning with one foot and me trying to clog the muffler with mine. Pretty funny ****! anyway the carnage was drastic, pretty much everything was lost except the frames. Motor seams to be ok and electronics. A new kit was re-ordered.
I think the reason why it went on for sooo long was because both blades broke off at the root and the blade grips were aiding in the heli being propelled around like it was on an axle. I really like the idea of a return spring on the throttle and will look into one to put on my heli and will also recommend one to frank. Thanks for watching the video guys and enjoying it. Atleast something good came out of all this carnage!

I guess this happened after someone yelled "LOWER"

Longest chicken dance I have ever seen. That clutch must be made from some exotic metal to have withstood that amount of abuse.

the clutch lasted because the main gear never stopped spinning until the very end when it was stepped on. These gears are strong, all of them survived except for the rear TT gear which was missing about 6 teeth

At 1:40 when he says "look at all the f---- fuel it's got!" I simultaneously spit coffee all over the monitor and wet my pants. Dam that was funny! Love those NY accents.

Incredible! It does speak volumes on the gears clutch and engine...

Brings back some bad memories of when my gasser hit the ground, sheared off the air cleaner and committed "Hari Kari" by ingesting dirt and rocks (yes there were rocks in the crankcase). The dance was considerably shorter

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Just for you who have never seen a farmer chop off a live chicken's head, well that's what the headless chicken body does. Somewhat gruesome and unnerving.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Cut them some slack...

The reason it could not be shut off
They probally had sandals on.
You ever feel the wrath of dirt churning blade grips?
Well me neither, but they say the bruise could last for hours.
Also it was scary to watch when it jumped into the air maybe 10 feet, I mean inches, as if to attack.. I will never put on a Tx and fly again..
...Just busting your balls... Great video!

Its all earth!
