Don't you hate it! I get out the 450 I haven't flown in a while because of issues with gyro and tail. Resolved those and it's ok. I go out to fly the raptor 30 and as I'm watching it at about a 25' hover I see something small fly off. The heli is spinning out of control and I could do nothing but watch until it got into some tree limbs. Oh well let's play with the bumblebee till the nitro is back!

I wish I still flew!!!

usually flipping to throttle hold will stop the tail from turning uncontrollably. Form next time.

Yeah guys flyin the V1. I think the tail pitch slider broke. For some reason (panic) I didn't think to throttle down and kill the motor. 50 bucks for parts and shipping, not bad if you ask me for what I got. Oh yeah the telebee gyro that was on it is a goner! I put a gy401 on it. It has a 9250 so that's a better combo, yeah?

I wish I still flew!!!

gy401 = a very smart move.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?
