This is why I love flybarless

You can hit the dirt inverted at full headspeed....snap the head off the machine and only break the mainshaft ...a couple linkages and a boom

And main blades of course

If this were a flybarred head there would be so much more to fix

It's going to get expensive if you have to keep replacing that bumper though.

Damage
It was VERY minimal damage considering how HARD I plowed into the ground

I have been trying to master the low inverted piro funnels and well....as you can see ...I don't quite have it mastered yet

Interesting you say that. I've had two pretty nice crashes with my FBL 400 and I still haven't replaced anything aside from a broken servo arm and a couple sets of stripped servo gears.

Actually the last crash was due to an ESC that caught on fire and the heli smacked pretty hard at a good speed. All I had to fix on that one was the ESC and a new set of landing gear bolts.

All fixed
Spent some time and fixed it all up last night...

Amazingly the only parts that needed to be replaced were the following:

Main Shaft(broke in 2 pieces )
Spindle was not bent but changed anyways
Main Blades
Tail Blades
1 linkage
1 servo gear
Boom
1 K&B tail blade
And that's it

Ready to fly again today

don't speak so soon
sometimes i think i have everything fixed until i get up in the air again, despite my bet efforts. One time a had a reasonable crash, replaced all that was bent/broken and checked all the servos under load and the darn servo waited until it was airborn to freeze on me.

Hope yours goes better than that!

I am guessing the shaft that snapped was the copy one?

I've splintered a couple Mikado shafts into several pieces. I actually think that's a good thing. It disapates energy apart from the airframe that way resulting in less damage.

Pink and green to make it more easily seen.

So, how do you like those blades?

Hey Jag,

Where do you get the skid rubbers that fit the Mikado skids? I'd like to put a set on each of my Logos.

Thanks,
LJS

Let us know what you think of those blades. I've bought a few but haven't flown them yet. Seem to be pretty flexible though.

Nice looking heli!

"3D" blades
I have flown these in the 325's and 425's and they flew very well overall...I haven't had a chance to fly these just yet though...

I suspect they are okay 3d blades but you're right ...they do tend to flex on the Super Hard collective inputs...but for 98% of the people out there...these would be good blades...especially for the price

Larry...I got those rubbers at Helidirect...they recently got them in black/orange and green...they work VERY well and are like 3$

you want the 7mm ones...the 8mm ones are good forl arger machines
