well fellows the tail does not blow out anymore and i installed a 12t pinion and i lowered the th curves for testing.

the bird flew great sounds very nice.

but one thing my mentors told me that i hope i never forget yet i always hear them in my head telling my use loctite on everything that is metal rushing to install the unit i used zero loctite on the screws.

after the crash i noticed one screw completely missing and i tightened them all very good .

bought since always seems to be better then told since.

so i have learned never forget to use loctite on all screws .

replacement part cost 9 bucks .
so far all of my crashes have been pretty nice , knock on wood glad i was not higher and when you build a bird you should wait til the nextday until loctite has dried
and test bird at 4 to 5 foot hover for atlest one battery or two then recheck screws for tightness after test flight .
lesson learned .

parts will be here tuesday and all and all with the new 12t pinion and 40+ gyro gain the tail no longer blows our and with the new cf boom the heli sounds really smooth cant wait for my second try .

thanks for watching

Why did it spool up like that all of a sudden on the bench?? was it a loose connection that suddenly reconnected maybe?

well i made a slow moe vid last night so i could see what i did wrong
guess i was in shock and didnt know my right thump turned off the switch before i unplugged the helicopter.

watch my face look at the radio and then my hand slipped in like it was someone else turning off the switch lol , i most have been in shock.

Ive done the same thing with my 600e, luckily the twice Ive done it the blades have only slowly started to spool up, I dont think I could of picked the 600 up like you did if it spun up that fast.

At least you were able to keep a cool head, thats the main thing.

Nice reaction time.

I probably would have bailed out out the picture and said WTF.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

cost me to much money i was more affraid of the damages to the heli
but it was within reach just because when i turned off the radio my hands were already on their way to unplug the heli.

one day someone will figure out how to not let the heli start up
when for what ever reason the radio gets turned off .

and im sure you will hear this same story from someone else
hopefully this post will make other uesrs more alert when it comes to unpluging heli most will see my face when they unplug their helicopters rofl lol lmao thanks for your post advice opinions and views may we all fly safe and becareful
