Any of you guys got a cheap trex 450 you want to part with ? Was thinking about trying to do a night rig if I could find something cheap enough.

You guys won't believe this!

Yesterday I visited with Sonny for a few minutes and he got me motivated and with the nice weather I burned through 4 packs on my Blade 230S in my front yard and one this morning. But I'm fairly limited by trees so I decided to take it up to the park for three packs. Flew the first pack to get use to all of the room I had, then on the second pack I took it up a ways and flipped it into mode 2, seemed pretty good so I tried to do a flip.....lost control, heli tumbling out of control toward the ground, then bam...hit the ground and went spinning into the air. That is when I hit TH and the heli fell back to the ground about 50 feet from the first impact.

My boy was first to the scene and said "it don't look to bad" but being 8 I was thinking, "yea right!" He brought me the heli, I looked it over and it appeared to be completely fine! I straightened out the blades and spooled it up slow then flew the rest of that pack and one more.....unbelieveable!! I can't believe I hit the ground like that and nothing happened.

I would still take out the feathering shaft and main shaft and roll them. You might have gotten away with it but there is a good chance there is a slight bend in one or both you can't see. An easy way to check the feathering shaft is to take off the blades, put a hex driver in one end and turn it. Holding everything still if the free grip wobbles as you turn the bolt on the other end it is bent. At least do that.

I think I would get kicked out.

I do want to know why I can't get a price break for not getting the magazine though.

Supposedly the magazine is paid for by the advertising not the dues.
