What a way to start the year. Got hit with a main blade in the back of my leg.
Standing talking to a friend when all of the sudden a fwop sound and a slap to the back of my leg. Scared the bajesus out of me.
Another friend was spooling up when the spindle screw let loose and the blades ejected.
Luckily it was a TWrecks250. Lmao. I'll swat that thing like the little insect it is.

First, glad to hear that you are ok. That could just as easily been a much larger heli with very different outcome.

This should be a wake up call to everyone to do a pre-flight check on your equipment before you start your heli up. While you can never know when a mechanical failure might occur it just shows the importance for doing P.M. on your stuff too.

Hope the rest of the year is safe for you and everyone else out there!

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Glad it was a little one.lol...

I had a blade break at the root once and hit me in the shin.(450)

I just looked to the sky and asked..."Seriously?"...
Of the trillions of directions the blade could have went?

Glad you're OK.

I literally never use the word literally right.
