I had my first major crash yesterday. I was flying inverted when small blade scrape occurred with the concrete ground. I lost control of the heli afterwards and it fell from a height of 15-20 ft onto the concrete ground. The damage was as follows: 2 stripped servos, stripped main gear, one damaged blade grip, and a slightly damaged tail strut, horizontal and vertical fins that were still usable. There was no evidence of a bent main or feathering shaft. However, it seems that a feathering shaft screw had stripped and I was unable to disassemble the head. I suspect that a servo was stripped during the initial blade scrape that resulted in the loss of control afterwards.

The 4F200 head should work, but there will be a problem in securing the swashplate rocker on the shaft (this keeps the swashplate in phase). You may need to drill a tiny hole through the shaft to fit it.
