I went out this morning to get in a quick flight and I went to slap a bug off my eyebrow and lost control of my heli hiting it at a full throttle to pull out and went sideways through the bedroom window scaring the crap out of my wife

She said it shook the house....

Did it go through the glass or the screen? I put my old HB into the side of the house many times, flew indoors many times and hit about everything in site!

HB mishaps
Wow, that's a scary incident...(snicker). I recall many an evening when I was up north at college flying my HB FP anywhere and everywhere in the dorms. Flew it from room to room, landing on coffee tables, kitchen counters, people's hands, and even one brave soul's head! (using sufficient eye protection of course ) It had just enough balls to perform an empty beer can removal service as well. I flew it all the time, and eventually the brushed can motor wore out, causing radio interference... Usually the elev cyclic servo would lock up at full nose up position. After a few ripped shirts, and dents in the wall (carbon blades) it took a long time to regain anybody's trust, even after I put a new motor in it

I would guess those stock 300 can motors are good for maybe 3 dozen runs. Using some old 1200 Etecs, that machine will fly for almost 15 mins per pack, so that's quite a bit of flying. As far as McDanger, I don't get involved with "McAnything" since I saw the movie Supersize Me!
