She CRASHED!!! :-( it's been dark lately when I get home from work so haven't been able to practice much lately except to hover in the garage. So yesterday I'm off early, wife ad son at the doctors for a physical charged batts and a house to myself??? Off to the front yard for some practice! Been practicing forward flight on the sim, thought I had it down. So after a couple mins of hovering, started some tail in figure 8's, piece of cake! As soon as I turned for some side in orientation, got close to a bush, over reacted killed the throttle to save what I could, and BAM!! Into the bushes she went! Damage report:

Bent main shaft, bent flybar, that's all I can see so far, replacements should be here in about a week... A new hobby store opened close to my house, gonna check I t out after work today!! Oh we'll, no debut tomorrow at the field!! :-(
