spanked my Raptor 30 into the back of a pickup truck yesterday. just getting comfortable flying high nose in and decided to come in a little lower with confidence... tail fell backwards and a pickup truck parked out in front of a small office bldg nearby accepted my bird as if it was meant to hit it. luckily the bird hit almost directly into the bed that was already scratched up and rusty... just a small knick of paint off the inside bed.

Rap didn't fair so well... OS32 cracked crankcase.. MPII large dent (no hole... is it still usable?), blades, boom, landing gear, and left body piece missing... my garage looks like a yard sale... moving up to OS37 now... as much as I enjoy working on these helis the $$ add up fast... overconfidence is expensive

Nothing wrong with having confidence. Just learn from this crash and get back in the air!

If you keep doing the same thing…...you’re going to get the same results!
