Got in a couple of little flights this afternoon only to have this happen to the king.

These little roots are tough!

I backed the heli into some weeds the other day. I did have some dead plant life wrapped up in the tail but not that bad. And no, I didn't get a photo.

I really need to spend an hour or two policing around the area I fly. There are tons of acorns, hickory nuts, small limbs, roots, and all that. I need to take one of those pickup tools and go to town. Those tailblades look like they've been chopping firewood.

Had just landed when this happened. Throttle at 75% or so. Gave the belt all kinds of trouble. I cleaned it up and tried a flight afterwards and the belt had stretched so tail rotor not affective afterwards. I'll have to pull on the boom some to get it going again.

you can try all you want...you cant combine helis and yardwork....clean the lawn FIRST...then go fly....although if you were good at inverted...the bushes would be fun to trim
