that is funny!

I have never seen that before! I can do it all day long on the sim, but I've never seen anyone rip their landing gear off and then some and still fly.

Good job!

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Yea that flight will never be forgetten.I wish I got the flight with my 600N,didn't crash or anything but this is what I did (not trying).I would come in fast from 50 ft or so and pop the blades right before the deck,twice I saw dirt and grass flying because I got soo low.I know Doug has one of his HBK where he slam dunked it in the trash can,maybe he will see this thread and post it.

Come one guys,even if its not a video post it up .No bs like I dug a 2 ft hole with the mains inverted haha.

I had a Blade 400 for my first "real" heli. I put the belt tension too tight during a rebuild and didn't know it was causing damage because the B400 has an enclosed tail case. Needless to say, the tail case bearings are stronger than the plastic tail case. the bearings ate through the case and the tail shaft became free-floating. She went into a piro-of-death and cut 4 symetrical lines through the rain gutter of my old apartment complex. Looked like that episode of mythbusters where the airplane chewed through the fuselage of another plane. I learned a lot that day.

I had a buddy out in Houston Texas that bought a brand new Trex600E. Mind you he could barley hover in one spot. When he set this thing up, he said he wanted a Alan Zabo Head speed, and and enough pitch to launch it to the moon. He also was using a 12s SET UP.

The first time he got it out to tune it in, he fired up the heli, lifted off, and started doing these really crazy fast pitch pumps really close to the ground. As I looked around, people at the field were hiding behind there cars. All of a sudden that helicopter hit the ground so hard, it lauched parts across 2 baseball field diamonds.

We laughed so hard........

Another Blade 400 story. I replaced my swash plate after flying into a tree, which broke the front tang of the frame of the swash. After replacing the swash, it did not occur to me that the balls might not have threadlock on them. So, next flight after the repair, I get up in a hover, and start moving forward. About 20' up, the heli decides to lay over on its side and drop vertically as one of the balls on the swash works its way out. The link stays attaches to the ball. It was my first crash that was entirely mechanical in nature (not dumb thumbs, and yes, it was due to negligence).

Just some good ol' fashioned shenannigans at the field w/ a video camera

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I was at the Baltimore Boys field, late fall 2007 mebbe 2008. Went down with some friends. Pretty big field, I was at the far end just chilling with my rappy 50 doing flips in the sunset, Mark my buddy is kicking ass all over the place (He flies for MRC now) and pulled a huge hurricane with his Trex 600... right... into... my rappy.

His mains chopped my tail clean off, right in the middle of the boom.

I was lucky and hit hold and was able to weather vane her in, no damage past the initial choppin.

My rappy was mostly kasama, including an all metal tail assembly.

The tail assembly went right into the 600n's canopy and electronics section. Nobody home!

The 600n hit the dirt and started auguring a nice crop circle/fox hole.

I looked over at Beast and Bobby with a Holy Effing Sheet that was COOL look.

We ran over to the earth mover, it was still killing itself. Mark almost tossed a 400 dollar leather jacket on it, we convinced him otherwise.

When the motor/clutch finally let go, we were able to kill it. The Super Stubs were worn down to the halfway point.

Oh it took everyone at the field to walk up and down the field till we found my tail assembly, about 75 yards away from the impact site!

Pretty sure there was some phone video of the chicken dance, not sure if its made it through the years.

Mark's doing better with his Hirobo's these days anyway.

Couple years ago I was in my front yard flying the rtf Falcon I still used back then for basics learning. The wife came out with the cat on a leash, why, I'll never know. If any of you have seen what a cat on a leash looks like, I don't have to tell you how spasdic they get. Needless to say, the helicopter flew right into my left bicep because I was looking at the cat on the end of a leash, spazzing out. Didn't hurt the helicopter surprisingly, but it cut the crap out of my arm.

Lesson here: never take your eyes off the helicopter to look at a cat on a leash spazzing out. Ever.

No video, but once I flew my raptor 30 right through a tree.

I thought it was a gonner. Leaves and sticks flew everywhere as it impacted.

Somehow, the heli got through it still flying! It was insane, with twigs and leaves falling out of the tree the dang thing was still flying.

The heli started to shake and flew badly, but I was able to control it. You could clearly see a twig with a leaf hanging from one of the skids. LOL I got it onto the ground and it was a little worse for the wear with a pitch link popped off and the blades were notched, but otherwise OK.

I could not stop laughing for a while after I landed. As I saw it, my next crash was free, because I got away with murder.

100% true. I have one witness, but otherwise I can't prove it.

Way back in the day, about 1982, I was fling my Cricket and Bud's field in Iowa. I had the Helli down cold with-out a gyro, so I decided to "go for it" and do a loop. Lots of speed and what seemed to be enough altitude I pulled back and started the loop. The first half looked good but as it started the second half I was thinking I might come up short on the bottom end, I was right! Made a small cursive "e" and plowed the field, parts went flying every where! It was the most impressive crash I'd ever seem! The best part was it only cost me about $20.00 to put it back together!
Still have my Cricket.
