I put a new, more appropriate sized Eflite Power 52 motor in mine today. It flew ssoooo much better than it already did, even though I hadn't flown it for at least a month. I think flying the big Slick with the slower reaction to inputs had me out of sorts a little bit, along with the INSTANT throttle response. It was a lot easier to hover, that is until the "last pack of the day" demon caught me. I was getting nice and comfortable (perhaps a little too comfortable
) down low, and was fixing to back a hover in close. I got to about 10' away from myself, and a little wind turned it and shot it toward me, I ducked out of the way, and splattered it on the ground. Good news is, a new motorbox and some landing gear rehab will have it in the air again.
Also good news, I got this crash on film.
