Remedy: Make sure wash out arms are bolted in before flight!

Never had a problem with my rappies. Make sure you got em screwed in good...and the holes are'nt stripped out.

Save time when crossing a one-way street by only looking in one direction

I had the problem of my flybar connecting rod breaking in flight. Lets just say it wasnt a pretty sight

2 rotors are better than one
