last saturday in the back yard proved to be a bitter day. on a test hover of my EC135 i had a crash. not sure yet what happened but after a lengthy investigation by the ntsbrc, it was boiled down to either loss of rx power or a satelite reciever being unplugged.
this will no doubt be a setback for it making the nats but repairs wont be tough as the damage isnt bad.


aiding in my therapy for recovery is this little gem

On the plus side at least it happened before you finished it.
Good luck with the rebuild.

thanks all, yeah i rather it happens now than when finished.
Butch, i know you're right!
Roy, i know where you live to come get it back
and Stan, it is big enough to be a great scaler with a cockpit and interior, especially as an electric!!

wow you guys have all kindsa confidence in me dont ya? well kewl i appreciate that. it wont be a tough fix actually and hope to have it in the air. surprisingly, even though it did a chicken dance, the main body is fine as are the mechanics. the only damage is a bent flybar. thats a tough bird that predator
glad i didnt have the four bladed head on at the time. i robbed one of the spindles to get my buddy Dan's blackhawk in the air after its midair explosion (remeber the "another blackhawk down post" ?)
and now they are out of stock
the pain in the butt part is getting the fenny assy aligned all over again in the shroud
next pix of it will be the in flight again shots.
got two scalers to finish and ship this wknd tho so maybe the next wknd

As soon as I saw the title to thr thread I knew one of your Scalers must have had a "manditory landing". Sucks to see what happened but it does look to be repairable. As was mentioned at least it wasnt painted.

What happened to you is the reason I fly a new scaler many many times before I paint it.

I don't think that a satellite rx coming unplugged during flight would cause you to lose control.
A JR 2.4 system won't boot up without a satellite rx plugged in but once the system is up and running the losing of a satellite rx shouldn't cause this issue.
Anyway sorry to see this happen.
