oh jesus!
(well, that's what I would have said)

Pre-flight inspection showed the top jesus bolt missing its nut, and on the way out. Loc-tite'd and tightened, I had four good flights in a warm Seattle evening, and the longest inverted hover so far.

Old topic, but a good reminder for me, to not be too much in a rush to get out and fly after a long day at work. I guess you could make the thorough inspection post-flight though, or a combination thereof.

I'm more of a Post Flight inspection type guy, my 450SE gets a very very close inspection, clean and check of everything after the weekend, either Sunday night or one evening during the week (to dark to fly now its winter here after work.

Pr flight checks basically consist of a quick inspection all over and double checks of things such as belt tension, swash travel and botton plate for cracks from hard landings.

I have gotta say that the Trex is really a very strong ship considering the number of hard landing and crashes I have.
Flying, crashing & having a ball.

I try to always pre-flight. Only time I post-flight is post-crash. The craziest of things can happen to a heli sitting on a bench between flights.~~OCHC~~
