new 700 le fbl dirtnapped........first nitro in 25 years. thats a record.
well i just put one in yesterday. ive been flying helis for over 25 years and i have put a few small elec helis in the ground but never a big one. and never did more dammage that cost what a set of mains do for this bird

i can honnestly say that it was a complete loss lol

here is a few pics before i took everything that was not dammaged off and a very small tub of what was good aside from some servos and the beast unit. enjoy. oh and the engine still runs.

i just installed over 400 something dollars in new stuff that morning like servos and main blades. also the pipe and new ys 3ds engine. aint she pretty ????

Hey Erick, That is quite a mess! I don't think I have seen one wrecked that bad. Doesn't look like there is much worth saving.
Sorry,

I had a pretty bad crash a few weeks back on my 700.

Worst crash I've ever had.

Some of the things that broke:

Crank case
pipe
Both Frames
Bottom plate
Bent one of the main shaft bearing blocks
Broke the fan shroud and my engine fan
Broke the electronics tray in two

Plus all the usual stuff. It was a total dumb thumb too.

well i was doing an upright tic toc then piro 180 to nose down tictoc then i flipped it on its side and was about 10-15' agl and at first i thought i dt it but upon inspection of a few things i think a link popped off as it was no where to be found but who really knows. the vis wasnt all that great and it did disappear on me right b4 it smacked down. i just dont know. oh well. i have another heli picked out from the classified sec but im just waiting on my pay to get here today to pp him the money. it is the same kind of heli . in the mean time i just got my new n9 this morn so im building her up. well taking upgrades off the one i bought and installing them on the one i have been flying. i can say that i am really liking this n9 . it flies super and will do anything i ask of it.synergy n9, trex 250,450,600,700

Sorry to see that! It does happen though which we know is part of the hobby. I also crashed my 700 the other day, frames and everything gone.. can't be mad though, I was close to the ground and inverted, sometimes it gets nasty..lol

Are you going to rebuild, re-kit or replace?

relaced. my new kit will be in mon afternoon. i have new blades already in the closet and a new set of electronics.

we have 1 major rule out at the flying feild and that is not saying the "C" word. well a new guy came out that morn and first thing outta his mouth was the "C" word and well to make a long story short. the next flight my buddy lost a nice mustang plane. right then and there i should have packed it up and went home but i kept flying then i went down.

yup you dont say the "C" word out there lol

well i just got my replacement 700 in the mail today. she looks great but i have the flu and i feel like crap. its eating me up sitting on the bench and i cant even get off the couch to play with it. to make matters worse. it is sunny and nice outside with 0 wind and my f/s plane is just sitting in the hangar fueled and ready to go but i just done even feel like getting in it to fly. sucks really bad. well im getting some rest. happy flying to all and watch out for the grown or poles. it gets expensive real fast.synergy n9, trex 250,450,600,700

well on my end thus far. 400 u.s dollars for a very slightly used airframe with a wicked sweet canomod and edge tail blades with a few nice upgrades. 119.00 for a new set of mains. and i had spare servos and electronics. and a few hundrad in odds and ends. all in all not bad considering that it was a total loss. i kinda figured it would have been much more. i guess thats why i have so many helis. oh and the addiction.....................lol !!!synergy n9, trex 250,450,600,700

well here she is. i will my new fbl g5's in 2 days along with a few lil things . she is ok to go right now if i fly with a cheap set of blades but i dont want to risk it so i just bought a new set of 690's for it. also has q uk canopy magnet mounts that im going to try out. i hated the way the hatori pipe was right there in the way and i got burned every time taking the canopy off to unplug the battery. i cant wait to get over this damn flu and get back out there. it makes me even sicker to see them all set . lol
