Crash tested my Kstds215mg servos!

I did a move to close to the ground and slammed my heli into the ground skids down.The damage wasn't to bad considering, one broken skid,two blades cracked but never hit anything and two broken servo arms.The servos still feel as smooth as before and after repairing the damage it flys just as well.I guess I should be great full that I didn't damage the shafts or Dfc head!Anyone ever break blades without hitting the ground, I think the impact was pretty violent , but flat on to concrete.I'll start flying three mistakes high again for awhile!The Robird has given me alot of confidence!edit: mainshaft was bent, after replacing my main shaft the vib graph is almost zero for tail and main (way below 200)even better than before and with Hobbyking $3.50 blades!
