Getting my confidense back after a long layoff from flying.
Now my helis are going to really get it.lol....

Was doing some tail in/down funnels with the 250 and got going a little too fast for me to control and BOOM....
I even tried to get inverted and punch out but it was just too late.

Little guy went in hard and fast.It actually made a thump on impact.

Went over to gather up the wreckage and guess what...a small chip in the main blade was it.I mean,not even a bent flybar.
One of the paddles was turned a little but wow....

Here is the total damage....I'm still flying with this blade though.No vibes or anything.Nothing bent.

I literally never use the word literally right.

I wouldn't call it a crash. I'd call it a sloppy landing.

Crap.Just found some actual damage.
It knocked the side out of my brand new Microheli tail gear and blew the bearing out the side.

I didn't notice at first because I only hovered to see if it was ok and it seemed to be but it is broken.

Glad I spotted it before it was in a tail spin 50 feet up.

Yeah,it was very minimum damage.
It just sux cause that Microheli tail is brand new and made the heli fly soooo much better.

I'll get another one I guess.
