i was on vacation in san diego........and my dad offered to take me to an open area to fly, i had fun burned 2 tanks and packed up my heli flys like a dream

i been flyin this heli for 3 years(this would be the 4rth) without a crash or new blades or anyhting, and it really flys nice

i have flown in the rain befor(more like a drizzle) and today i wa slike it will be fine, i flew a good 5 minuts and got bored so i just wanted to burn off this last tank and land, at the end of my flight i was coming in nose in and i stoped at a hover in front of me at 2 ft then the tail kickes and begins to twitch and do cracked out 360's, my first thought was let me just get it down befor it hits anyone(lil bro and big sis watchin) and i make it crash but i hit thro hold as it hit the ground

i can do piros fine but these were not piros i thought it was the gyro, maybe the rain did it, but it will be back in the air by the end of the week

3 years flyin.....nocrashes....now its all in ashes........

I had my first crash 2 weeks ago. First crash in 8 years.


Granted I didn't fly for a 5 year period in there though.. hehehe

And what ticked me off is just like what happened to you. I had radio interference and lost control of the heli. But just to give that added twist of the knife, I got control back about 3' off the ground, falling like a rock. Was only able to level it and slightly slow down the fall, but still, I think the only good part left on the bird is the electronics....

Debating, all the replacement parts for $160~, or just buying another kit for $250.. hehe

I'd be more concerned with your transmitter in the rain. Hopefully you didn't damage it, causing the out of control piro.
Sorry about the crash... it's about time.

sorry to hear about your crash
it only takes one drop of rain in one on the gimbels
to make a interment problem the good news that it will
usually dry out and no more issues
