I was into my first pack, thank God I wasn't flying hard yet, and my CNC tail pulley case breaks in mid air. The heli started spinning, but I was able to hit throttle hold and auto (sort-of) landing with no additional damage. I can't for the life of me determine why the tail pulley case broke. Hopefully mircoheli will replace it...we'll see.

Hang in there! I know the feeling. Stinks when it wasn't really for fault.

Nah, I lock tight(ed) everything. I have a great pic, but I can only upload on Monday. The metal just split in half. Glad I practiced autos.

They sent the email today saying they had the replacement in the mail. That's great, but I was lucky. What could cause the part to fail. I've heard of quality issues... has anyone else had a problem?

Shhh, don't tell the wife.

Well this may be a bash against MH but I am not suprised! Although they might be getting better in the service end, I had several problems with their products for the HBK2 and never heard a word back. Just what part broke? If you still encounter problems you may want to look at the cncheli stuff for the Blade, always had good service, they seem to LISTEN to their customers and timely delivery.
