the parts by the landing gear are all definatly broken/bent. the blade grip is simply the screw for the ball busted off and is stuck inside there with no way to get it out.

Add it up.It takes a lot to need a new kit instead of a rebuild.

Hey Foo, I know it hurts, I've done it a bunch, but like many people say here, "if you ain't crashing, you ain't learning" Sims are OK, but I don't think they are close to the real thing, when your hearts pumping, and the adrenilin is flowing, and yes, the thumbs quivering. I've got a whole box full of bent, broke parts, and after a couple of years, still can't fly worth a crap, but when I think about how hard it was to even hover at first, I guess I have progressed after all. Those loops and rolls, still make my knees shake though. If I ever manage to do a Tic Toc, I'll probably fall over dead from a heart attack! Still more fun than I've ever had with my pants on!

How much?Nowhere near a kit,correct?It's pretty rare to go over $200 in heli parts in a R50 crash.

I've got a Raven 50 with a flybar that looks exactly like that except on both sides. Haven't tried to get things apart yet, I know it'll be a bear to do.

On my Hawk 30 with a 3mm flybar I've used a high quality pipe cutter to cut through it to get things off.

Both of my Helis are down now, waiting for parts.

Got Money? Send it to me, I'm a Heli Addict.

Yeah, but drugs only last for a little while, the heli experience lasts a lot longer man. Believe me, I know. Focus on what is real, not what can take you from reality. I don't fault anyone, I know they will figure it out in time.

BTW: Buy a GD dremel tool man, what the heck are you thinking? Those things are PRICELESS and should probably be ranked as the #1 invention of whatever decade they were invented in.

Bash the seesaw bearing out with a drift. It's shagged anyway.

Just keep at it. Remember that the more you fly the more you crash. I've also hav my share of flying a alot. Also, my first crash was doing a roll (join the club). Actually...... all my crahses have been doing rolls.

The supper glue and duck tape thing sounds cool. At least it will save you money untill the next crash. LOL
