Mandy stress tests her new Trex 700N landing gear
We really wish we had a video of this one because it was sooo funny.

Mandy had a really good flight on her new Trex 700N and when the timer went off she came in for a landing. When she lands, she always does what we call a mini-auto. She brings it in about 4 feet from the pad, flips throttle hold, and sets it down gently.

Well last weekend her last flight ended with a flameout and she had to do a forced auto. So I told her to go negative to keep the headpeed up, and then I told her when to go positive again to flare.

Well today she went a little brain dead and once in a hover she hit throttle hold and cranked negative. It came slamming straight down and the landing gear snapped and rocketed left and right. The heli landed perfectly flat and sat there with her blades spinning. Mandy let out her famous hollywood scream, and the rest of us busted out laughing.

It was amazing, the heli didn't bounce or tip over or anything. It looked like a low-rider sitting on the pad.

Only Mandy!

All she dorked was $7 worth of orange landing gear! Didn't touch anything else!

Amazing.

Wow lucky no boom strike.

Here's one of my funny botched autos. It bounced on the gear and flipped over onto it's head.

I don't think that is how they are suppose to land It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
