uncontrolled freeflight Autorotation
so im flyin my trex xl yesterday and things are going great. this was the 5th flight or so. anyways, im off to my left about a 100 feet out and a 100 feet high and coming downhill to a spot right in front of me when i lose all radio control over the heli. i tell my buddy who was standing behind me to run away and i start backing up aswell. so its about halfway back now and steaming downhill when the trex starts to pitch up from forward flight. well, it settled into a nice freeflight hover almost directly in front of me and at about 3 feet alt. at that point, the CC35 killed the motor and the bird did a near perfect auto right in front of me.

damage report: cracked front left landing gear leg and a bad receiver.


TALK ABOUT LUCK!!! i almost went to the local church and did some praying haha.

Gotta agree with Kamikasi, Lottery tickets seem the best idea at times like these!Flying, crashing & having a ball.
