Sorry I lied, I feel horrible! I wish it was something dramatic!

I took off, let motor warm up.....link to tail rotor pops off and I was unable to save it! Quite a few bearings are crunched, mase, spindle, blades, grips, boom, flybar rod, links, landing gear.....there is more damage....still looking.

I have video later...

Watch at YouTube

Photo for now:

I had a gyro peel off of a foam pad once. The tail went nutz.... It was ugly.

Sorry man. Crashing sucks.

You mentioned in the other post about "washers" that there were a limited number of Raptor parts. Are you familiar with Heli-Kraft? They have many parts for the older Thunder Tiger models. I haven't searched their site for all the parts you might require so there is a chance you will still be pulling parts from your personal stores -but if you haven't surfed over there yet, you might look around. http://heli-kraft.com/index.php?rou...ategory&path=96

Yeah, good tips and ideas in your thread. I am going to have to look around and try to find me a new SE kit. Cheaper to buy a new kit than fix what I have.

I was using that carbon push rod, I bet vibs knocked it off. So, I am going back to stock wire tail system...it is a proven system with very little issues.
