I crashed the Blade 400 HARD yesterday. Rolled inverted and was too high almost above me and lost orientation. I thought I rolled back but before I knew it she was heading towards the ground fast upside-down. Like the newb I am I spastically threw full opposite collective and it reversed directions but this time was flying horizontal (must have added some cyclic in there too!) It hit the grass pretty hard. Trashed the landing gear, main blades, feathering shaft, main shaft, main gear, and the flybar. Luckily I had most of the parts on hand. Gotta go this weekend and get the landing gear, blades, and main gear and she should be good to go.

You should have seen it though, pretty funny from the viewpoint of an observer
