Durable : and submersible!

[QUOTE=Budasac;22894344]Pretty durable though considering the weight. It took quite a fall today and other than a busted canopy all I had to replace was the flybar. They're unbelievably durable. I did the MOPS modification after mine cut the power from probably 100" high and it did a nose-dive. All that was damaged was the tail boom, canopy and the canopy attachment struts. One day, in a hurry to get back to flying after a crash, I neglected to make sure that the dog-bones to the rotor blades were in the guides on the inner shaft. It was uncontrollable and wound up submerged in a stream for probably a good 7 to 10 minutes. I figured the pcb would be fried, especially when the tail rotor started spinning with the switch off. But I blew it off good with my air compressor and warmed it with a hair dryer and it was as good as new! Also, I'm using 900mah batteries.
