Another report of elevator servo failure here. I was on my approach for landing when I banked at about 45' high and then lost elevator, went nose first into the ground. Still can't believe this happened, it just wouldn't pull up and or around, really had no control, just had to watch it plow into the ground. The elevator servo seems jammed, it takes a bit of force to even get it to move. I am sending it back to HH for inspection, the only thing that's left intact is the rudder, Rx, a wing, half the elevator, landing gear and charger, the rest is damaged, even the the motor, esc and lipo. Only 5 flights and this thing was in perfect condition, not a scratch, until this happened. I really was enjoying this plane too, hopefully HH will help, if not I just spent $400 for 20 minutes of fun.
