I dont belive it I just raped me raptor in a tree.
HOW YOU MITE ASK.
has anybody had this hapen before
as i aproched the tree I pulled back on stick to slow forward speed and added pitch to lift over tree.
but it did not respond and flew straint in tree
I looked down only to find the the right stick in me hand but no longer atatched to radio.
I have a Airtronics/Sanwa RD 6000 Super
aparently the sticks just slot in the gimbels and theres nothing holding them in there over than being pushed in
like say a volume knob on a radio.
I would have a least thort there would be a pin or curclip or some thing holding them in.
OTHER than the just being pushed in lick a knob on a stereo.
design cock up or what and looks like the fit has come a bit lose on the right stick.
dam lucky it landed in tree good and no damage other than One of me NHP carbons is cracked , bent flybar dont thing its even think the blade grip spindel bent.
I neather thort i would be glad to land in a tree but if it aint have been there
I think I would be buying a new Raptor kit
some one said push it back in and super glue/CA it
but fly with it know what holds the sticks or rather whats not holding in make me worry
anyone else had it hapen or have any recomedations?
I am shaw glad it did not come out in a near hover to me or I would be getting stiched up know at the local AandE department
Im wonder wether it would be worth contacting the airtronics/sanwa for there view.
on whether it safe to have there sticks fited in just by pushing in a plastic gimbel without anything to lock em in there.
please if any one else had a airtronics or SANWA as there called in the uk
PLEAST GIVE THEM A TUG AND SEE THRE NOT WORKING LOSE.
before you have a crash like me or worse.
