Hi guys, here is another one for the crashed gallery. I was emptying the camera out when i found these so i might as well post them. I was practiseing autos all the whole flight and had just lifted off into the hover after another auto and flicked into idle up when boom, the heli just exploded in front of me. It turned out that the screw that holds the ball link onto the blade holder broke and the blade must have took full pitch and bent back in the holder and contacted the tail boom with the usual results, tailboom, spindle and main shaft. She is back up and flying again.

If it doesnt move and its meant too... use WD 40. If it moves and its not meant too...use duct tape!

Engine is the HEART of an r/c model, but THE PILOT is it's SOUL.

I had one of the ball links on my 600n come out and all I had to do was land. When I heard the flutter of the blades I knew what had happened. Sorry yours did'nt come out so lucky.

OHHHH crap!! That was fun
