E-flite UH-1 Boom Strike
Have you ever heard that little voice in your head say; "Don't fly! Something isn't right!"? Well I heard that little voice this evening when I went out to fly my Blade CP with the UH-1 body in the shop. Some items were rearranged leaving very little floor space. I thought to myself; "No problem I have this bird trimmed and I want to hover around for awhile". So I am hovering and all is right with the world. Of course I will not be satisfied with that, so I land and adjust the throttle and pitch curve a little. I start to spool back up and the throttle advances a little too fast for the 3-N-1 gyro and my thumbs...BAM!!! I hit the top of the rabbit judging table and it slams the blades into the boom!
I just checked and Horizon Hobby sells a full line of replacement parts...except for the body! I didn't break anything but the body!
Oh, well maybe next time I will listen to the little voice!

Oh, well. I didn't listen to the voice or move the rabbit table. My fault!
I need to disassemble the heli and see what else is bent/broken. I had just replaced the main shaft!
