Too bad for me!!!

I just got overconfident with this machine and started doing piroflips closer to the ground than I ussually do in gusty conditions.....and bang!!!....it hit the ground!

If you ask me why...its feels very balanced that gave me the balls to go lower....OH WELL...it the Heli's fault cause it felt so balanced and easy to maneuver that in gave me confidence to go lower...and it had to happen!!!!

MRC has all the parts(except skids) in stock. Either have your hobby shop order them for you or order direct.

Normal crash damage...tailboom, mainmast, spindle, a couple links, mainblade, tailblade. What I expected to also break was the skids..but it was ok....if it were the old type skids, it would definitely be also damaged. Surprisingly, there was no damage to the tail housing and tail shaft even though the tail pitch assembly was damaged...

I got my parts from the local hobby shop here...should be flying soon.

Wow Justin! Still, this is cheaper to crash than your Turbulence D3

Good you're able to fly lately, weather here in Manila is so terrible we had been grounded for 3 weeks already. I'm so eager to test my SDX with the new GY520 from Futaba.

So we have spares already eh? I'll try some >KF1 moves soon hehe.

Hope you can post pics and how much the crash cost
