Well my synergy went in today..I had had just installed my new SE tail assembly and was almost ready to call it a day..I was doing some low piro flips and it didn't end pretty..The tail let loose..The worst part was I was flying over pavement..I pretty much know why this happened and it is my fault but Synergy's as well for the poor design..The tail slider Lock ring looks to have come loose..It is my fault for not making a groove in the slider bushing..I did use some epoxy to hold it on but it wasnt good enough..I have pics coming...So far I am at $400 minus main and tail blades..Luckily i was flying without my Insane canopy..

Sorry to see it. That tail boom moved forward is different from all my crashes.

Yea I also thought it was odd that the boom and Front Transmission output assembly moved forward...It did hit tail down..The boom is not easy to bend and my hyperdrive was still pretty straight although I am still replacing it...Looks like the force shifted everything forward rather than bending the boom and torque tube..

You can also see the transmission output assembly came out of the boom clamp although the boom clamps where tight before and after the crash.....

I was seriously considering a a 700N kit which would have cost me the same pretty much....I just cant see this machine in pieces and it was flying soo smooth, so i had to rebuild it...I will say this is my most expensive crash to date..Lets hope this doesn't happen too often or else I will buying a 700N..

Sorry about the crash. Seems like when a heli is flying at its best, they crash. I suppose it's from our feeling good in how it flys we push it.
