i went back flying again with my tarot, 120d02 (3axis) and 250 dfc on sunday morning and crashed 2 on inverted flights and the 120d02s gyro is broken after a head on landing on the ground.....that's it ...my heli life for the week is done.....no parts no fixing, no flying....it is a really down moment.....i still have 2 6-axis d02s but i dont like flying the 6-axis...
at times i'm thinking if i should just stop flying....have u guys experience any down moments like this....?
LOL!!!!!! Man your preaching to the choir over here pal!
Man, you just have no idea! I've wanted to throw in the the towel soooo many times. I have a scar on my right shoulder from the V120. On my chest, I don't think i have a scar, but i got whacked in the chest with my 4f200's 3 blade tail rotor while i had the main blades off, I forgot about the tail and the heli spun over right across my chest. got me a few times, from nipple to nipple
. Then of course there is this, in case you missed them before.
Okay, those are old. But here is a few from just in the last month or so.
Uh, yeah well you get the idea, because honestly.... I can keep going. My advise to you is to calm down a little. Don't rush so much to get out there to fly. Because... Well, you know the result now. I don't even think i have to continue. Also, supposedly, Walkera offers repair service on their RX. Since you broke your RX on impact, can i assume you were not using a canopy?
