The other night, Fast_lad, steven Gerrad and myself went down to B and Q to get some wood and, remembering that their car park is floodlit, decided to take along a couple of trex's

Chris managed to take his tail blades out on a low flip and go piroutting through a small tree (total damage about £8) but apart from that everything went without incident and was awesome to see.

Trex's doing blade scrapes, who have thunk it

Was that £8 damage to the tree, because I didn't think you could do that much damage to a T-Rex

Just smile

I only managed to take 1 branch of the tree out, so I guess a couple of quid would have covered it. lol

As for the t-rex

Feathering spindle... £1.00
Main Shaft £2.00
Tail blades £3.00
Landing skid £2.00

Didn't even break the blades...

It locked out again on... that was a little more expensive. lol

Cheers

I'ts a shame I'd stopped videoing and missed capturing the 3-way crash on Sunday. That was by far the best I've ever seen

Will do, will try and fit it the video editing tonight, as I'm starting the new 90SE build.

Thats 3 Raptor 50's in less than 2 seconds including a collision. Absolute madness. I was feeling a little left out
