First Crash, Darn
Well more milestones have been met in my first three days of flying. Went out on all of them and burned through three tanks all while learning something new each day. However, on my third tank today while practicing my side in hovering, a wind gust tipped me over and I couldn't save it, I was only 3-4 feet off the ground. Broke the main blades and thats it, landed back on the skids due to the rotation of the blades and my training gear, thank god, other wise I would need quite a bit more parts. All thats left to due is check my main and spindles shaft to see if their bent, but I think everything should be good. Gotta get me some new blades and I should be up and running for the weekend again.

Don't forget to check the bearing also for the main shaft. Even a small tip over can flatten a spot on the bearings.

Every time I replace a main shaft (plus all the other parts), I replace the main bearings.

A bad bearing can mess up a really good day.

Just My thoughts.
