Hey guys,
Wanted to share my crash story from yesterday. I was flying my Raven 50 and doing some tic tocs when i noticed the canopy come loose. I was on the inverted portion of the tic toc and started to level it out to land and fix it. As soon a i got level the canopy flew off the helicopter. On its way off the heli the canopy decided to turn the power switch off. The heli was at about 15-20 feet with no radio power. Not sure of all the damage but it looks worse than it is (i hope)

Man that sucks! Dosent look too too bad. Hope the double dog bones let your Torque tube move enough to avoid damage. Ive crashed worse and the TT survived. Good luck.

i have not taken it apart yet but if you notice the tail servo mount. It used to be flat against the back. It apears to have moved out and disconnected the tube so i think it might be ok.

Yeah i am really luck it didn't chicken dance. The engine was about 25% we it hit. Not too much trouble getting it shut off.
