Lucky save!

You did well to control it - most night flyers have LED blades, making the rotor disk the main point of reference.

I had a lucky save this morning. On my 2nd pack in my #2 450, it threw a tail blade grip. I heard the tail belt screeching, and with the heli only 8 feet up, I flipped throttle hold and landed without any damage. That'll teach me not to do a pre-flight check, especially when I'm relying on threadlock to hold the tail grip bolts. My luck held, too, since I was even able to find the blade and grip, complete with the rogue bolt, in the grass about 20 feet from my landing.

I definitely prefer the way the HK RJX head flies to the Tarot one, and so I'm going to swap them out, along with the motors - the 2223 seems much stronger than the 2218, yet it doesn't seem to use more battery.
