I would not call that a hard crash, boring to crash anyway.

crash damage
I have been using those fusuno painted frames... don't waste your money. A very small crash ends up with your head blocks, main shaft and gear (still attached,) ripping out with the blades. Tail gear did go also. Back in some 2mm frames, added some KDE cnc... all is good and back in the air!

Hey Zoot, what did you use for new frames? I just put a set of the Fusuno neon orange 2mm frames on my 550. You got me worried about 'em now!

frames
if they are G10... you will be surprised how they don't make it through a crash. check my gallery, and you will see the green frame set. The head came off with blades and main gear assembly still attached. Check ebay for a dude named Tesla. He is selling 2mm CF frames for 29 bucks.
