Oh yeah...that was definately very lucky. I have had a tail control rod fall off in flight on a radikal....Turned into an instant piroretting blurr....at that point the only thing to do is hit TH, get her to stop spinning and auto down as best as possible.

good catch.

alot of times the screws will work themselves out despite any locktite due to an oily residue on the threads...for a metal screw to plastic thread on servos you may want to use CA instead of Locktite...and before that clean them both with a good cleaner like Alcohol or a specialized electronic cleaner meant for plastic.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Nice Save...!
Good Save there Mike.
Specially on the grass as the skids tend to always find a root and flip the bird over. That's a nice video and close up of your setup. It will help us with helping you out since we can somewhat see your setup.
Nice Canopy by the way....
