Learned a bit about my Beast this morning. Yesterday I landed in a bit of a hurry due to slow joggers/walkers on my runway. Nosed over and didn't kill the throttle fast enough. Ground about half of the spinner? (nose cone?) off. Repaired it very nicely with a bit of Spackle, couldn't have been more than a gram. Rounded and smoothed out nicely. Checked it by spinning the prop before taxi, looked great. Plane did not fly well. Very wobbly. Pulled the spinner off, plane flew normal. Guess the AS3X does not like vibration at all. Been flying fixed wing for 3 months now and this will be my first parts order. With helis I would have already ordered enough parts to build a new helicopter.
